Tamer earned his B.Sc. in Naval Science from the Egyptian Naval College, served as a chief officer in the Coast Guard brigade, then as a Captain of a fast patrol gun boat in the Egyptian Fleet. He started his Hydrographic career by earning his (Cat-B) IHO hydrographic course with honors from the Naval Oceanographic Office in the UK, then participated in numerous survey operations as a Hydrographic surveyor in the Egyptian Hydrographic Department. Following the promotion to a Commander in 2009, he completed his first master’s degree in hydrographic surveying from the Arab Academy for Science & Technology “AASTMT” with the trophy for best thesis in Seismic surveying. Thereafter, in 2010 he earned his second Master of Science from the University of Southern Mississippi while completing his long hydrographic course (Cat-A) with the US Navy. In the Egyptian Hydrographic Department, his last post was the chief of the Egyptian Hydrographic division and was responsible for the production of the Egyptian Electronic Navigation Charts (ENCs). In 2017, he retired as a Captain from the Egyptian Navy, then worked as a freelancer Geophysical surveyor for FUGRO SAE. He is an active member in the IHO S-101 working group to aid in setting the new standards for the ENC production. In 2018 he started his PhD in the University of New Hampshire and the Center of Coastal and Ocean Mapping CCOM. His point of research is for a fully automated nautical cartographic solution.
