Satellite Transceivers

Satellite transceivers are similar to the tracking devices without location information. They allow you to connect a device to the satellite system and send data/information from a remote location - you receive the data at pre-defined intervals without traveling to the site to retrieve the data.

In the past, many projects have used transceivers to transmit data in near real-time. Some of these projects include the NASA High Altitude Baloon Program, NASA's JPL Antarctic Program, and the U.S. SOCOM Snow Goose Program.

What instruments can be connected to a transceiver? All sorts of instruments can be connected to a transceiver, instruments that have either digital or analog (electrical current) output. Some examples are weather stations and water monitoring equipment.

Weather stations can have numerous sensors including temperature, barometric pressure, relative humidity, light intensity, and soil moisture. A water monitoring station may include water level sensors, current and flow sensors, and water PH. All data is sent via the satellite transciever.

Data or information from the remote sites can be delivered to you via email, static IP link, or through a custom webpage that we will develop for your needs. (Example, Societe Kuujjuamiut Inc.). See our Services section for details.
