WELCOME TO THE OPTICAL SATCOM CONSORTIUM
Concept. Research. Results.
The OSC is a member-based group that brings together technology innovators, technology suppliers, product manufacturers, and end users. The main goal of our consortium is to share research and realize the goal of making internet access available to every person in Canada, everywhere in Canada.
RESEARCH AND COOPERATION
About the Optical SatCom Consortium
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.
