Goat Knight produced a 5-minute video on a revolutionary new technology that will soon be installed in Portugal and International Waters. The short video explains SMART Cables, a project sponsored by ITU (International Telecommunication Union), WMO (World Meteorological Organization), and IOC-UNESCO (Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission).
This technology will install environmental sensors (Ocean Bottom Temperature, Ocean Bottom Pressure, and Seismic Acceleration), into telecom repeaters along 3.700 kilometers, at 4.000 meters depth, on about 50 repeaters on the CAM Atlantic Cable (Continent Azores Madeira) to be installed in 2026.
The video premiered at the SMART Cables, Science and Society Workshop at Aveiro, Portugal, on May 23rd, 2023. More information on this technology can be found on
