The Ministry of Defence has released their video for the Defence Industry Awards of Excellence.
MetOcean Solutions won the prestigious 'Provision of a product to Defence for less than $15 million' category for the SurfZoneView software.
SurfZoneView is a tool designed to assist amphibious landings by modelling and visualising surf conditions. The tool was developed in a close working relationship with the Defence Technology Agency.
"Getting personnel and gear safely ashore can be very tricky," states Dr David Johnson who worked with the DTA to develop the tool. "We are very happy to have created something that will help keep the Royal New Zealand Navy personnel safe."
MetOcean Solutions is now making the tool commercially available to navies, civil defence agencies and coast guards around the world.
