Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology will exhibit its practical education and research activities focusing on sea at the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology's Information Square.
For oceans that occupy 71% of the surface of the earth, Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology conducts practical education and investigative research from the perspective of fisheries science and maritime affairs.
The Shinyo-maru IV, which went into service on March 31, 2016, is the training ship intended for Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology and the students and researchers of other universities and organizations who use it to conduct wide education and research related to fisheries science, the marine environment, marine resources, marine creatures and the cruising of ships.
The Shinyo-maru IV mainly cruises around Japanese waters and the equator of the Pacific Ocean and engages in trawling, cuttlefish-fishing, exercises of longline fishing of tunas and investigative research.
We will conduct exercises of fishing vessels for faculty students and education for helping them acquire the mariner's license. The Shinyo-maru IV is an educational facility that is essential to help students who will create next-generation fisheries and marine science in Japan and the rest of the world acquire latest knowledge and technologies and develop them into high-level engineers. In addition, the Shinyo-maru IV can also conduct an investigation of the structure of the bottom of the sea by a two-dimensional earthquake wave explorer, operate autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) robots and conduct a precise investigation of the bottom of the sea by an audio-device.
For this time, we will make presentations about practical education and research activities focusing on the Shinyo-maru IV. We will also make presentations about the development of fuel cell-ships and the development of a remote ship piloting system by long-range Wi-Fi communications as well as Raicho N, a next-generation ocean traffic system with low environmental loads focusing on seas. We look forward to your coming to see our presentations.
