HiSeasNet is a satellite communications network designed specifically to provide continuous Internet connectivity for oceanographic research ships and platforms. Access to the Internet is an integral part of nearly every research lab and office on land; extending this access to oceanographic ships--our seagoing laboratories--will broadly impact seagoing research activities. For the ships, HiSeasNet will provide:
- Transmission of hot data in real-time to shore-side collaborators;
- Basic communications-email, voice and video teleconferencing for scientists, engineers and crew at sea;
- Tools for real-time educational interactions between shipboard scientists, teachers and the classroom, as well as informal science and other education and outreach activities.

Welcome to the HiSeasNet wiki. Here, we store information and documentation for our partners.
You are in the General wiki space. There are multiple spaces within this wiki; think of them like books on a shelf. Here is a list of them:
General information about HiSeasNet that might be applicable to operators and users.
Technical information related to operation and coordination of the HiSeasNet satellite network.
Information related to higher level use of HiSeasNet for science purposes
