Coastal Technology

Working with local communities, First Nations, industry, and government to resolve coastal development issues through research, design and innovation.

We strive for results. We will find the right solution if it already exists or our in-house research and development engineers will design a custom-made solution.

Our Coastal Technology Research & Development Department

Our team of engineers, operational specialists, and technologists is fully outfitted to discover, design, develop, and deploy. We specialize in surface, sub-surface, and aerial methods for coastal monitoring and surveillance to help you make sense of your coast and choose the best course of action.


The OceanSled™️ is our un-crewed, rapidly deployable solution for coastal monitoring, marine surveillance, and ship-to-shore transport in sensitive and difficult-to-access nearshore environments.

Industrial & Technological Benefits (ITBs)

Shift Environmental operates with its First Nation partners in the coastal technology and maritime monitoring, intelligence, and surveillance market space. We understand innovation, through joint research and development, increased sales, and export potential of Canadian Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises and we provide opportunities to leverage ITB offset multipliers.

Shift Environmental Technologies Partners

Our government is ensuring our oceans and marine ecosystems remain clean and healthy for Canadians from coast to coast to coast. The Ocean Supercluster projects announced today will help us build a cleaner post-pandemic economy and achieve environmental sustainability on a global scale. Projects such as the one led by Shift Environmental are taking innovation further, making lasting contributions and helping our oceans thrive.
