IOOS Studies Ocean Tech Providers' Economic Impact

Posted by Eric Haun
Wednesday, November 13, 2013

In September 2013 the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) launched a study to determine the ocean observation sector's impact on the U.S. economy. This nationally-focused effort will inventory companies classified as providers of technology to U.S. IOOS and intermediate users who add value to U.S. IOOS information for delivery to end users.

ERISS Corporation and The Maritime Alliance are conducting the study which will examine characteristics such as the number of provider and intermediate user companies, size of these companies, volume of activity, volume of exports and number of employees. Company narratives will be collected to understand how US IOOS has helped industry planning and operations, as well as perceived potential for growth and investment.

Companies interested in taking part in the study can give contact information at: http://www.usworks.com/usioos/
