The marine technologies sector is vast and its potential is enormous. Advanced technologies specific to the marine sector such as smart buoys, sonars and professional diving equipment are used alongside others that have broader applications (including maritime) such as for navigation and communication systems, geomatics or data computing.

In Quebec, businesses in the marine technologies sector work essentially in high-tech fields. This sector notably comprises electronic navigation and maritime communication systems, data acquisition and management systems, integration of maritime information systems and technologies, mapping and marine geomatics applications.
