Why satellite telemetry?

The Ku-band VSAT system based on the Nanometrics  Libra technology will be used. This approach offers the following benefits:

*  Freedom in station placement with no reliance on local infrastructure.
*  Significantly less field equipment to deploy and maintain, no repeaters sites.
*  No RF survey required other than visual confirmation of clear view of satellite in the sky.
*  Rapid relocation of sites. VSAT communications impose almost no restriction on site placement
*  Substantially reduced operating costs (~ $20 per station per month continuous 3-comp. 50sps data).
*  Bandwidth of the system supports a range of other technologies (e.g. GPS) for possible future applications.
