Maritime Engineering Journal
Canada’s Naval Technical Forum
The Maritime Engineering Journal (MEJ) has been the principal publication of the Royal Canadian Navy’s Naval Technical Community; this community includes past and present serving members of the Royal Canadian Navy and Public Servants. Since 1982, the MEJ provides unclassified discussion surrounding naval technical challenges, naval history, and human interest stories from within the Naval Technical Community.
“EW in a Box” – Engineering a Modular Electronic Warfare Solution for the RCN from Conception to Deployment [Issue 94]
As naval engineers, we are fortunate to have access to a plethora of positions and assignments. Even when excluding “purple” or out-of-trade positions, I would argue that the variety of engineering work vailable to us greatly exceeds offerings found in the private sector.
GPS Performance for Ships in the Arctic [Issue 94]
Common misconceptions regarding the performance of the Global Positioning System (GPS) at high latitude include coverage gaps at the polar regions and positioning accuracy being independent of latitude.
Underwater Gravity-based Navigation for Long-range AUV Missions [Issue 94]
The Spring 2019 edition of the Maritime Engineering Journal (MEJ 89) featured an overview of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) and their suitability for the military context.
The Naval Engineering Test Establishment’s Support for RCN Innovation with Unmanned Systems
Part 1: NETE Unmanned Systems Centre of Excellence [Issue 94]
The Naval Engineering Test Establishment (NETE) notional Unmanned Systems Centre of Excellence (USCE) has been under development for the past three years with a mandate to create and maintain operational and technical subject matter expertise (SME) in unmanned systems that operate in all naval and marine environments – i.e. underwater, surface, and above water (aerial).
Part 2: A NETE Advanced Development Model for a Maritime Multi-Domain Control System (MMDCS) for Unmanned Systems [Issue 94]
The Maritime Multi-Domain Control System (MMDCS) is a DNR 2 minor capital acquisition project tasked to the Naval Engineering Test Establishment.
Part 3: NETE Acquires Unmanned Systems for its Maritime Multi-Domain Control System (MMDCS) Project [Issue 94]
At a minimum, the MMDCS is a universal control station for unmanned vehicles (UXVs) operating in the underwater, surface and above- ater domains relevant to naval platforms.
