Established in 2003, The Coastal Observing Research and Development Center focuses on the development of new technologies, their application for basic and applied sciences, and the exploitation and fusion of data for improved decision making. The Center serves as an interface between research and technology development within local, state, and federal agencies and also works with industry providers to develop, improve, and evaluate new sensors.
CORDC is comprised of a staff of scientists, engineers, programmers, data managers, technicians, and students. Graduate and undergraduate students participate in R&D projects, and use data generated by CORDC for their graduate theses. CORDC has experience and success with design, coordination, and implementation of complex field measurement programs around the world using radar, lidar, sonar, and unmanned underwater and airborne platforms. CORDC also develops unattended meteorological and oceanographic sensors and maintains their data networks.
