An award-winning Canadian exporter, Nanometrics was the first company to produce a fully-integrated satellite system specially designed for studying and monitoring earthquakes.
Nanometrics has customers on every continent in more than 100 different countries. Our customers have used our technology to establish and grow research networks across every environment in the world from the frozen tundra of Canada's north to the arid deserts of the Middle East to the jungles of South America. Many of these deployments include mission-critical national and regional networks that demand the highest possible data quality and availability
Nanometrics was founded by Robin Hayman, and has since grown to more than 100 full-time staff with Corporate Headquarters and a production facility located in Kanata, Ontario: the high-tech heart of Canada's capital region.
Research and Development
Nanometrics attributes much of its success to the company's focus on a strong research and development program. We developed the world's first VSAT network designed specifically for seismic study - the Libra system - and carried out the first VSAT installation in Colombia in 1992. Since then, Nanometrics has set up more than 900 remote site elements and 30 Libra hubs in more than 20 different countries.
