The University of Hamburg approached CTS directly with the request to quote and subsequently manufacture and install 3 weather stations at:
- Kaoko Otavi
Once again, satellite communication has been chosen, this time not because of GSM not being available, but to reduce future cost of the stations as satellite communication for these stations has got no costs associated.
In addition to the basic data measured:
- Wind speed
- Wind direction
- Air Temperature
- Barometric pressure
- Ground Temperature
- Leaf wetness
The stations are equipped with a WLAN interface. This allows the connection of 49″ SmartTV to be connected to each station to display the current weather inside close by offices.
