OBSEA is a cabled seafloor observatory located 4 km off the Vilanova i la Geltru coast in a fishing protected area. It is connected to the coast by an energy and communications mixed cable.
- Provides an uninterrupted power supply to the scientific instruments.
- Offers a high bandwidth communication link.
- Real time data is available and problems encountered in battery powered systems are avoided.
- An optical Ethernet network that transmits data continuously to marine sensors connected to the observator.

OBSEA-UPC participates SILENCIO project
Published on 2021-09-23
The aim of this project is to expand existing knowledge about marine noise and assess the feasibility of incorporating electric propulsion in small fishing vessels
In the OBSEA we are collaborating with interoperability projects to provide the acquired data information using standard protocols.
Aims to: "Design and implement an integral environment for marine biological indicators monitoring through wired observatories and autonomous underwater mobile vehicles, achieving a strengthening of the spatial factor together with the high temporal frequency of data acquisition"
Carrying out the localization and systematic monitoring of marine species allows identifying their activity and movement patterns, which are necessary knowledge in a sustainable fisheries management plan.
