RDC Invests $1.7 Million In Academic-led R&D In Newfoundland And Labrador

"It is through the support of our funding partners that we are able to take great strides in developing new systems and technologies," said Ann Marie Vaughan, President and CEO of College of the North Atlantic. "The benefits associated with the college's Dormatecture project could have long lasting effects on the housing and accommodations sector around the world."

One project funded by RDC today aims to enhance the level of detail and accessibility of seabed surveys using an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle. The project, led by Dr. Andrew Vardy, an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science in Memorial's Faculty of Science, could be used for environmental monitoring and offshore exploration.

"AUVs are most useful in gathering data from inaccessible areas such as underneath the Arctic ice shelf or in very deep water," said Dr. Vardy. "The support of RDC has been critical to the project and has enabled us to execute the project's objectives while providing a rich training environment for undergraduate and graduate students."

An overview of the projects receiving funding from RDC is contained in the backgrounder of this release, while more detailed project descriptions are available online at www.rdc.org.

The Research & Development Corporation (RDC) is a provincial Crown corporation responsible for improving Newfoundland and Labrador's R&D performance. RDC works with R&D stakeholders including business, academia and government agencies and departments. For more information about RDC, go to www.rdc.org.
