WHAT WE DO

In 2018, the Government of Canada gave the mandate to the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) to bring together key contributors to create new technologies and a value chain to improve broadband connectivity in remote and rural communities in Canada. Out of that initiative, the Optical SatCom Consortium was born.

WHO WE ARE

The Optical SatCom Consortium is made up of a diverse group of scientists, researchers, and engineers from industries and organizations across Canada that share ideas and research in the field of optical satellite communication. Through this collaborative approach, they help each other, and Canada, succeed.

WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN

Becoming a member of the Optical SatCom Consortium gives you and your organization access to cutting edge research, news updates, and group project workshops where ideas are shared and collaborative work takes place. Different membership levels are available.
