Our Team was invited to participate in the 2nd annual quantum workshop offered by CMC Microsystems in Magog, Quebec. Our team was represented by Odette, Shihao, Mojgan and Ehsan.
The UW-STREAM participated in the 7th Underwater Acoustic Conference and Exhibit in Kalamata Greece, between June 25 and June 30. Cole presented his work on covert underwater communication systems, while Ananya's work is on real-time adaptive multi-carrier transceivers. It was good to get feedback on our ongoing work.
Tanaka presented our hardware-in-the-loop simulator that is used to diagnose sailboat behaviour, including that of the SeaLeon when it was launched during the 2018 MicroTransat competition.
Ehsan and Jean-Francois visited the National Research Canada Energy, Mining and Environment labs in Boucherville. Thank you to Christophe for hosting. It was very insightful to observe first hands the previous photo-acoustic sensor prototype, and we hope to build on this, as part of the OFI Graduate Excellence Network .
We shared our research on the development of an ASIC for measuring oceanic ambient noise and using power spectral density and other metrics to monitor environmental conditions. This work contributes to standardizing ocean sound as a crucial variable for climate change monitoring.
UW-STREAM members attended the event, showcasing our real-time harbour porpoise localization system on SoC. Congratulations to Jordin for receiving a best student paper award. It was great to connect with researchers globally and exchange innovative ideas post-pandemic
Ryan Taylor and Surinder presented at FORCE's headquarters their final deployment to transfer radar data from a remote lighthouse.
Dr. Bousquet provided a seminar on the Internet of Underwater Things at the University of New Brunswick. Thank you to Prof. Monica Wachowicz and her research team, our hosts at UNB.
This underwater communication sea trial experiment took place on August 14, 2019 in Grand Passage, Nova Scotia. A variety of signals were wirelessly transmitted underwater via acoustics, and then the receiver was left to passively record for a period of 7 days. By analyzing the recordings, we could hear lots of animal activity throughout the seven days.
