MNF team and technical support staff

The Marine National Facility (MNF) is supported by two programs within CSIRO's National Collections and Marine Infrastructure (NCMI) business unit:

  • Ship Management Program
  • Engineering and Technology Program.

The Ship Management Program oversees the operation of the vessel and works with vessel users. This involves managing the application process, voyage planning, voyage schedules, mobilisation and demobilisation. They work with MNF technical staff and specialist groups in CSIRO and outside the organisation to ensure voyages are delivered safely and successfully.

The Engineering and Technology Program manages and supports marine and atmospheric research with specialist engineering and technology skills in instrumentation calibration, hydrochemistry, geophysical survey and mapping, physical collection systems (including geotechnical, open ocean and atmospheric systems), and data management.
