Compiling weather data at the expected time can weaken the consequences of environmental pollution, population size and global warming. The highly precise sensor networks and wireless sensors are employed in food production and agriculture for incessant monitoring of the environment and accurate agriculture.
CalAmp Corp., a developer of wireless products and services for communication networks and other vital applications, declared that the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has set down $1.1 million for the wireless T96SR progressive modems, from CalAmp.
The NOAA will be using the advanced wireless information units in their Automated Surface Observing System for collecting weather data such as the direction and speed of wind, temperature, visibility, height of the cloud, detection of freezing rain, the type of precipitation and dew points from the sensors which is a crucial for transportation and aviation security.
The wireless modem functions on the UHF frequencies contributing diagnostic abilities and a two-way power control besides broadcasting informative weather sensor data.
According to Rick Nozel, senior VP, Sales and Marketing, CalAmp, the application of NOAA needs a highly secure, powerful wireless source that can relentlessly and reliably outsource the gathered information and that CalAmp has provided a practical solution by its digital modem which operates wirelessly ensuring vital precise weather report for the NOAA mission.
