This year we celebrate the third International Year of the Reef (IYOR). Declared for the first time in 1997, the IYOR was initiated due to increasing threats on coral reefs and associated ecosystems, such as mangroves and seagrasses around the world.
Blue Abyss CEO, John Vickers, was honoured to be part of a specialist panel within the EarthXOcean Conference, entitled ‘The Blue Economy’. Held in Dallas (USA), EarthX is the largest environmentally-focused event on the planet.
The Virtual Reality Planetary Survival Training Concept, created by the Human Interface Technologies Team, University of Birmingham, UK, is to be presented at EarthX this year. It will illustrate the technology-based simulation possibilities (Virtual and Augmented Reality – VR, AR) that will enhance Blue Abyss’s training capabilities and offerings in the future.
