"The marine environment plays a vital role in our ecosystem, economy and even our daily lives. As we increase our reliance on oceans for new resources and expanding civil, commercial and scientific activities, we are faced with a need for good marine systems capable of performing in this environment. Marine systems are usually used for a wide range of applications, such as exploring the extreme depths of our ocean, harvesting resources ranging from food to oil, monitoring our environment, performing national defence operations, transporting products and other subsea activities. While doing this, these systems operate in an environment with challenges such as high hydrostatic pressures, harmful interaction with electronics and materials and strong hydrodynamic forces. To tackle these problems, it is evitable to have some form of marine systems that is robust to these challenges.
