MONITORING A DAM IN BURKINA FASO

Transmission link : Inmarsat C


Installed in November 1998, six PM36 hydrological platforms survey the rainfall water in the valley of the Nakambe River and the holding capacity of the dam.

The PM36 transmits their data once a day.

If an alert occurs during high-risk periods, the PM36 immediatly send the last measured water levels to the Supervision Center on the dam and to Ouagadougou Operationnal Center.

VOLCANOES SURVEY IN INDONESIA

Transmission link : Argos

PM36 in departure to Bandung (Indonesia)

In this application, low power consumption and high reliability are achieved thanks to the PM36 electronic board which allows the connection of a dual-axis tiltmeter with 16 bits resolution and 14 bits accuracy.

The dangerous variations of volcanoes implies an unceasing survey. The PM36 platforms does.

The Volcanological Survey of Indonesia receive data through Argos link and take advantage of an autonomous measurement system.
 
 

FLOOD WARNING IN MOROCCO

Transmission link : Inmarsat C

A HYDROELECTRIC DAM AL WHADA
FES DISTRICT

Data collection by satellite plays in important role to forecast and even give the alert in natural catastrophes as floods.

ELTA has installed a complete network composed of 15 PM36 platforms an 2 direct receiving stations using Inmarsat C as transmission vector : one in Rabat and another in Fès.

The End Users of the Hydraulic Department of Marocco can control and program each site from Fès in case of violent thunderstorms or heavy rains.

MED-HYCOS PROJECT
 

Transmission link : Meteosat
 

Observation program of the Mediterranean hydrological cycle

A new world observation system of the hydrological cycle (WHYCOS - World Hydrological Cycle Observing System), initiated by the WMO ( World Meteorological Organisation) is set up around the coast of the Mediterranean and of the Black seas (MED-HYCOS).
 
 

Elements of a Meteosat PM36

Dedicated to the telemonitoring of hydrometeorological networks, exposed to wide variations of temperatures (from -20°C to +70°C) and to aggressive environments (lot of humidity, proximity of a maritime surrounding, etc...), the platforms are designed to record and teletransmit data acquired from a maximum of 8/10 sensors to the Regional Pilot Center.
