Ocean Networks Canada (ONC) is a world-leading organization supporting ocean discovery and technological innovation. ONC is a not-for-profit society that operates and manages innovative cabled observatories on behalf of the University of Victoria that supply continuous power and Internet connectivity to various scientific instruments located in coastal, deep-ocean, and Arctic environments. ONC’s cable arrays host hundreds of sensors distributed in, on and above the seabed along with mobile and land based assets strategically located. These instruments address key scientific and policy issues (subsea earthquakes and tsunamis, ocean acidification, marine biodiversity, etc.) within a wide range of environments.
ONC's Observatory Operations' division is mandated to provide a reliable and relevant digital and coastal and sub-sea infrastructure that facilitates the goals of the observatory user communities. As a department within Observatory Operations, Marine Operations supports this mandate through the installation, maintenance and repair of the cabled arrays, mobile systems and land-based assets that comprise the coastal sub-sea infrastructure. In this regard, Marine Operations utilizes a team-based, client-focused approach that promotes a safe work environment and fosters an environment of mutual respect, cooperation and support. Together the Field Services, Testing & Development and Operations Support units within Marine Operations, work to efficiently, effectively and safely fulfill their core purpose. The Marine Technology Centre (MTC) in Sidney serves as the department's base of operations.
The Field Services unit is primarily responsible for preparing for and executing field service operations related to the day-to-day workings of the cabled observatories and other mobile and land based assets. This includes ship based activities that occur multiple times a year for up to four weeks duration, as well as day and multi day trips to service land and marine systems.
