The North American Submarine Cable Association, or NASCA, is a non-profit organization of companies that own, install or maintain submarine telecommunications cables in the waters of North America. NASCA serves as a forum for its membership to provide and exchange information on technical, legal, and policy issues of common interest. These issues include standards and procedures for government approval of new cable installations; working relationships with other marine industries; and public education about such cables. NASCA was formed in October 2000. NASCA is seeking IRS recognition as a non-profit trade association and business league under section 501(c)(6) of the Internal Revenue Code.
The Member Login is for current NASCA members. If you would like information on becoming a NASCA member please visit out Member Companies page.
NASCA Member Cable System Routes Available Online
Cable routes for NASCA's eighteen members are available here at the NASCA website for online viewing or downloading in PDF format.
NASCA has taken this major step forward to further ensure the safety and continued operations of submarine telecom cable systems which have been designated critical infrastructure for both economic and security reasons. NASCA cable charts provide the interested stakeholder the ability to assess the proximity of submarine cable systems to any planned coastal projects or infrastructure buildout, and to request further information if required.
Cable routes are overlaid onto NOAA Charts for those residing in United States waters, and on equivalent charts for those outside of the United States. Should a Viewer require more definition regarding the routing of one or more submarine cable systems, they are invited to request further information from CableCharts@N-A-S-C-A.org.
