The Technical and Maritime Affairs Division is considered one of the pillars of the Center since its inception in the Marine Science Center at the beginning of the eighties of the last century. It was at the level of a division called (Technical Services Division). It has a specialized cadre in all specializations, and the Technical Division made many sacrifices, especially in 1991 when the research ship (the researcher) was bombed by the American aggression in Khor Al-Zubair, killing four martyrs from the ship's crew and drowning the entire ship.
