Stella Maris

Multi-Sensor Seabed Platform (MSSP)

Stella Maris

The first multi-user undersea sensor platform in Eastern Canada, COVE Stella Maris will serve as a marine instrumentation test bed, hosting marine sensors and devices for multiple ocean technology firms. The Multi-Sensor Seabed Platform (MSSP) will be a low-cost, easily accessible way for ocean technology companies to conduct product development, verification, and commercialization to get their product to market faster.

Located on the seabed 10 metres below the surface and 100 metres from COVE's wharf, the sensor platform will be cabled to a shoreside operations centre supplying power and data-communications to the platform.  Users will remotely monitor, control and configure equipment on the platform from the operations centre. Real-time ocean data and video will be available to credentialled users

COVE Stella Maris is under construction and scheduled to launch in June 2021 during COVE Demo Day as part of the H20 Conference.

Stay tuned for more updates!
