Support to Member Countries in Intranet/ Internet Development SOPAC has been investigating and developing access to Internet services by a variety of technologies which include commercial PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Networks), commercial Internet satellite services and non-commercial satellite services (PEACESAT). SOPAC has also undertaken a study and implementation plan to provide cost effective full Internet services for a consortium of development organisations in Fiji. The development of Intranet/lnternet services in Fiji is being used as the model by many Pacific Island Countries and it is essential to demonstrate that charges can be minimised as well as providing access to these services throughout the region. The objective is to transfer this technology to the member countries. Information Communications and Technology (ICT) Technical Assistance 1997

Maritime Boundary Delimitation and Extended Continental Shelf Claims The Pacific Islands Regional Maritime Information System (PIRMBIS) now contains the computed critical basepoints, and the extrapolated notional maritime boundaries for Pacific Islands. Existing treaties were also been incorporated into PIRMBIS.SOPAC has also commissioned the services of the (NOC) in the UK to undertake desktop assessments for Palau, Federated States of Micronesia, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Kiribati and Tuvalu.

SOPAC-Japan Deep Sea Co-operative Minerals Program 1) A survey of two legs was planned during mid 1999 for the Hakurei Maru No.2 to assess the potential of hydrothermal ore deposits in the North Fiji Basin. The Hakurei Maru No.2 is equipped with multi narrow beam echo sounder, (MBES), side scan sonar, proton gradio meter and a continuous deep sea camera. Bathymentry, subsurface and magnetic data and bottom sediment and rock samples are expected to be collected during the survey. 2) Review and provide the results of the 1998 cruise of the Hakurei Maru No. 2 in the Federated States of Micronesia and the Marshall Islands. Mineral investigation surveys were carried out as part of the fourth-year activities of the 3rd SOPAC/Japan Co-operative Deepsea Minerals Program carried out in May-July 1998.
