Marine Technology Society | Diving Technical Committee

We have been happy to nurture the activities of the Marine Technology Society’s (MTS) Diving Technical Committee.

The MTS Diving Committee’s purpose is to take an active leadership role in steering fundamental issues [and opportunities] surrounding the development and application of new diving technology and techniques among and between occupational diving communities.

Recent activities include:

-Organizing and editing the 2013 Special Issue for the Marine Technology Society’s Journal entitled ‘Diving Technology and Techniques for the 21st Century’.

-Administering a diving technology survey to occupational diving sector stakeholders.

-Drafting for publication a MTS Diving Committee ‘Code of Practice’ to steer diving program management.

There is a very exciting opportunity within occupational diving for the convergence of techniques and technologies from historically disparate diving sectors that will strengthen humans’ position within the Blue Economy. Ocean Opportunity Inc. looks forward to continuing to nurture this position for the Marine Technology Society.
