This project required weather data to be monitored at a remote airstrip in a valley, which was then sent via the mobile phone network back to Sydney so the owner could monitor weather conditions before flying out to this remote location. The solution required a high-quality Weather Station capable of transmitting long distances out of the box. Currently, the only out-of-the-box high-quality Weather Station capable of transmitting long distances over 2.4 gig was the RainWise MK-III which transmits up to 1.6 km line of sight out of the box. RainWise also offered a highly reliable Next G telemetry solution able to provide near real-time weather data via the web, mobile phone with the ability to provide weather alerts via SMS, and email. This was done via the RainWise Teledata Next G RTU. The Teledata Next G RTU plugs into the RainWise 3300 logger/receiver providing the transmission of weather station data along with virtual sensors that provided dewpoint, sigma theta winds stats, and live-fire danger index which is useful when your airstrip is located in remote bushland. Finally, due to the remote location the solution needed to be solar powered that was cost-effective, had a small footprint, and could withstand severe weather conditions. A small 20 W solar panel and 20 amp hour battery were all that was required to run both units allowing for near real-time data 24x7.
