Kittis pointed out the importance of the Cyta`s cooperation with Radius and CSnet, which will offer broadband and other oceanographic services for the offshore hydrocarbon industry in the Eastern Mediterranean.
Maritime Communication Services (MCS) Inc, a provider of worldwide VSAT and managed services for the maritime community and a wholly owned subsidiary of Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS), announced on Wednesday (18 February) that it has signed a strategic agreement with CSnet International, a provider of turnkey design, development, deployment, operation and maintenance of large and complex offshore communication networks, to collaborate on the marketing, design, development and operation of ocean observing systems.

Soon, the NSFNET, as well as the Computer Science Network (CSNET) came into existence.
The usefulness of computer networking - especially email - demonstrated by DARPA and Department of Defense contractors on the ARPANET was not lost on other communities and disciplines, so that by the mid-1970s computer networks began springing up wherever funding was found for the purpose, including the Department of Energy's MFENET and HEPNET, NASA's SPAN, the computer science community's CSNET, the academic community's BITNET, and USENET based on Unix UUCP protocols.
In the 1980s, academic networks developed under the auspices of the National Science Foundation (CSNET), and the resulting NSFNET subsequently replaced ARPANET in 1990.
The 1980s saw the development of several related networks, including BITNET (a general file transfer and electroni mail network) and CSNET (Computer Science Network), which were mainly used by academic and industry professionals who were not served by ARPAnet.
The software is able to recognize nodes on the network that can serve as transfer points between BITNET and other networks, such as JANET and CSNET. Soon I expect to have access to Internet, a sort of loose network of networks that will make even more connections possible, including access to the OPACs of major American research libraries.
When it became clear the network was a valuable asset for ARPA research contractors, NSF broadened participation with CSNET, a network connecting university and other computer scientists.
Internet presently includes BITNET, Arpanet, MILitary NETwork, CSNet, NSFNET, BARRNet, CICNet, JvNet, Merit, MIDNet, NEARNet, NYSERNet, OARNet, PREPNet, Sesquinet, SURANet, WESTNet, and many others.
