New marine innovation programme to support development of Blue Economy

The UK Hydrographic Office (UKHO) has launched a new innovation programme to help start-ups and innovators develop solutions for safe, secure and thriving oceans. One of the challenges seeks to identify how navigational data can be used to support the safe navigation of Marine Autonomous Surface Ships.
