    Oceans in Action 2015 highlights agencies at Stennis Space Center that support missions relying on marine technology. Featured speakers will return for this annual event. In addition, we will also continue the tradition started two years ago of inviting abstract proposals from individuals who have made recent technological advances in any aspect of marine technology. This might include new or enhanced systems, sensors, products, services, models, processes, algorithms, or other technologies. Presenters will have the option to submit a paper for consideration in the upcoming general issue of the Marine Technology Society Journal.
