PANEL 1 Emergence of Offshore Wind: Opportunities for Research & Monitoring at National Scales
Moderator(s):
J. Kohut
Offshore wind installations are accelerating across the globe with forecasts projects ranging from 65 to 100 GW operational between 2023 and 2025 with increased deployments in United Kingdom, France, Asia and the United States. While still limited, there is an increasing body of research focused on the specific processes that describe the interaction between offshore wind turbines and underlying ocean conditions, at scales ranging from individual turbines to entire wind farms. Funding opportunities are also increasing to support research, with a major focus on establishing pre-construction baselines. This work will explore on-going research and monitoring efforts to understand relationships between offshore wind and physical, ecological, and social environments, socioeconomics, and communities across the United States.

Moderator(s):
A. Ziegwied
The Uncrewed Maritime Systems (UMS) Committee at OCEANS 2023 Gulf Coast acknowledges the rapid advancement and operational use of uncrewed maritime systems, which have significantly expanded the U.S. maritime sector beyond its traditional boundaries. As these uncrewed maritime systems find new applications, the market experiences substantial growth. However, this expansion has also created a regulatory gap in admiralty law, affecting government entities, law enforcement, classification societies, and insurance carriers worldwide. The UMS Committee brings together industry leaders and accomplished maritime experts to harness their collective power in improving and defending the blue economy, protecting the environment, and enhancing national security.

Moderator(s):
V. Pallayil
Implementation of the Ocean Decade agenda 2030 of sustainable oceans requires knowing our ocean better and following it up with development and implementation of right solutions. Our understanding of oceans and our ability to manage and conserve critical marine ecosystems are limited by our ability to acquire quality, interoperable data from marine observations. But do we have enough tools and technologies to address the Ocean Decade vision? Are there gaps that need to be addressed? How accessible and affordable are these tools and technologies for the researchers? The proposed panel will address these questions (and more) and make recommendations.

PANEL 7 Lab-to-Market. Commercializing your Innovation: Overcoming Challenges to Reach Mission
Moderator(s):
M. Pitts
The panel will explore strategies to survive the Valley of Death. Hear from parties that provide non-dilutive funding (grants, philanthropy), impact capital, and traditional capital. These sources go beyond government funding and are typically required to move ocean tech to large scale as a private enterprise, even when the government stands to be a substantial customer in addition to the ocean technology industry. We will also explore research that suggest the biggest failure points of start-ups and how to avoid the pitfalls, including lack of enough domain expertise and failure to do appropriate customer discovery.

PANEL 9 Federal and Port Business Opportunities
Moderator(s):
L. Jugan
Federal and state agencies are currently creating new ways to seek out technology companies. Federal agencies are in search of technologies to help make their missions more efficient, less labor-intensive, less cost-intensive, or even safer. These agencies are keenly aware of technological developments both inside and outside the typical federal contracting environment. Organizations are creating all types of mechanisms by which companies can identify business opportunities both under existing federal contracting vehicles, as well as new outreach programs with less rigid requirements.

PANEL 11 How American Leadership in Marine Technology is Revolutionizing Our Relationship with the Ocean
Moderator(s):
T. Gallaudet
Throughout the 20th century, the marine environment has been under attack, and the principal assailant has been us. Overfishing, pollution, habitat loss, harmful algal blooms, coral reef bleaching, biodiversity decline, and an increase in ocean acidification and marine heatwaves caused by climate change are challenging the living things that depend upon the ocean, including people. A sea change, however, is occurring in response to these troubling trends. The response to this challenge must be to strengthen the U.S. ocean science and technology enterprise.

PANEL 12 Operational Oceanography
Moderator(s):
L. Jugan
The Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command (NMOC) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) are leaders in operational oceanography with a workforce footprint, a combination of civilian, military, and contractor personnel, spread across the country and around the world. While science and technology are always at the foundation of operational oceanography programs, the mission of each organization provides the purpose, focus, and application. With significant overlap in the collection and application of meteorological and oceanographic data, NMOC and NOAA partner together to support ANTX as the culminating event to the OCEANS 23 conference and see it as an opportunity to maintain competitive technical advantage, while also supporting outreach to the broader scientific and academic communities.
