Expandable Seafloor Observatory

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.
