Leveraging Subsea Telecom Infrastructure for Ocean Science

Some of us will recall the last downturn in the submarine cable industry which occurred from roughly 2002 until 2007 or perhaps longer. During that time, system suppliers and many others sought out new markets and one of the most promising was cabled ocean observatories. These systems are used to provide scientific sensors with permanent communications and power, a huge advantage over battery powered sensor deployments that are left on the seabed for months or even years before any of the data can be accessed. Several dozen such systems have been installed around the world, the largest of which are NEPTUNE Canada, located in British Columbia, and the Regional Scale Node system installed in Washington and Oregon states. The Japanese DONET and S-Net systems are primarily for seismic and Tsunami warnings but can also be considered cabled observatories.
