Realtime Monitoring of Electric Fields for Power Grid And Other Applications
In addition, ASTRA's self-powered, autonomous, Standalone System Support Module (SSSM) provides power and communication capability to support our customers' need to operate various assets in remote locations, including environmental sensors and other monitoring and communications equipment. The SSSM was designed specifically for operations in harsh environments with scalability and configurability in mind. An Iridium communications module can be switched out with cell-phone or other communications protocols. The SSSM enables ASTRA and our customers to provide real-time space weather monitoring services from remote locations, including the measurement of geoelectric fields and other geophysical parameters.
These kinds of technologies and services illustrate how society is developing tailored products, delivery technologies, and user applications for mitigating risks to technologies affected by space weather.
