DATA COLLECTION FROM REMOTE STATIONS VIA METEOSAT
In the framework of the Remote Sensing and Radioactive Waste Disposal Projects, the possibilities to transmit data in quasi-real time from remote stations have been investigated. Both an agro-meteorological station in the Republic of Guinea and an oceanographic buoy have been fitted with transmitters to send the data via the Meteosat satellite to the laboratory at the Joint Research Centre (JRC) at Ispra, Southern Europe. The current paper describes the development of the systems, the laboratory installations, and the software developed at the JRC or according to JRC specifications. The paper includes also a discussion of some of the problems involved. Finally, future developments are discussed.
