Needless to say it sparked my curiosity enough to send you this note. I'm currently employed in the Canadain Armed Forces and staioned in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The unit where I work is called TRINITY or as the project name goes...CFIC (Canadian Forces Integrated Undersea Surveillance Centre). We are part of a world wide network of undersea surveillance sites designed primarily to maintain a watch on those "mechanical wonders" that put to sea. As a secondary duty, a direct result of budgetary cut-backs we have taken on several alternative initiatives, including one...the monitoring of marine mammals. We acheive this thru passive acoustic techniques and routinely detect several different species of marine mammals in the open ocean surrounding Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. The information we are gathering is being passed via official channels to some unknown entity in the United States, who has been in direct liasion with the U.S. Navy regarding this matter. After reading about your organization I got to thinking that perhaps here is an opportunity to further enhance the way both of our establishments do business. I'm going to research further the "releasability" of the information and data collection methods we perform and see if we can be of some service to your organization. I would like to also mention that TRINITY is currently trying to establish a WWW Home Page and assoc Internet links...this should be up and running soon. As for now, I am sending you this courtesy note to let you know we exist...unofficially. I don't know if the officialdom can be overcome to enable us to work together, however, I will certainly be in touch for my own personal interest in you organization. Got to go now...coffee is getting cold. Please fill me in about your organization a little more via e-mail or the old fashioned way.......
