Ocean Networks Canada (ONC) is a world-leading organization supporting ocean discovery and technological innovation. ONC is as 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, instruments that 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, Systems Operations supports this mandate through the design, implementation and maintenance of the infrastructure to capture, transmit, store and access all data from the observatories.
