Enabling data collection and transmission from the most remote regions of the planet
The majority of satellite needs within scientific research present themselves with initiatives involving remote field work or remote data collection. Whether providing communications services to researchers working pole to pole or supporting the transmission of data from remote outposts, L-band technology is ideal for everything shy of live video. Some examples of the benefits of satellite-enabled technology in research are outlined below.
Meters and monitoring devices can be programmed to send reports at regular intervals for observational studies, allowing researchers to work from their labs and offices instead of in the field. This helps cut the budgetary pressure associated with field work, and also makes the research more accessible for larger teams and greater collaboration. Additionally, for truly remote locations with harsh weather conditions, the risk of sending people into those areas for any amount of time will be far less of a hinderance.
Research involving the use of rovers, drones, balloons, and other moving data gatherers must always be supported by some kind of satellite-based location tracking system. Whether there is remote control of movement and operation or if the device is free-range, it is always important for the researchers to know where their equipment is at all times, and be able to recover it if necessary. Working with our technology will provide the peace of mind required to deploy, track, and manage these unmanned tools from anywhere.
L-band satellite transmission capabilities vary across different industries and sectors within those industries, but are most commonly geared toward solutions involving geo-tracking or sensory reporting at regular intervals. Because L-band technology operates at the lower end of the frequency spectrum, these smaller data packets travel more efficiently, allowing for real-time transmission and globally-supported satellite coverage.
Satellite technology is among the few equipment and facilities categories that gets constant attention, and the reasons for that are manifold. Primarily, it is quite normal for satellite technologies to have strong ROI, often because they can automate systems and processes that otherwise require extensive man hours and maintenance of existing equipment currently employed to perform the task. These cost savings add up quickly, and can easily justify the budget decision in a matter of a few short years.
Internet Of Things Creates Actionable Data
Perhaps impossible to ignore is everyone’s increasing obsession with Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, and how they can apply to one’s commercial sector, even in the most fringe of capacities. While it is certain that a large amount of the advancements in technology can have measurable and significant effects on efficiency, accountability, and reliability, it is also eventually going to be the case that a number of these “must-have innovations” will become decorative bells and whistles that fail to contribute sufficient return on investment. Making smart decisions about how to invest in these new technologies is critically important, especially for researchers, as budget items are tightly constrained already.
Leverage Our Expertise For Your Business Growth
GSE’s team of engineers and solution architects are perfectly prepared to assist in the creation of a technology set that actually meets your individual needs by amalgamating only the tools that help you achieve the goals you have for improvement of processes and output. While GSE has the ability to work with all of the available bells and whistles mentioned above, we know that less is almost always more when it comes to business objectives, and we know how to get from your desired outcome to a lean solution set specifically designed to achieve that goal. GSE engineers also emphasize ease of use, integration with existing equipment and technology whenever possible, and streamlined, replicable implementations, with support.
Making smart decisions about which of these technologies is best for your operation can be extraordinarily difficult, especially because of the influx of availability, and the pressure to make allotments only for those enhancements that will have strong ROI. As a technology partner, GSE will work directly with you to outline the opportunities available to achieve your goals, and we always emphasize the use of existing equipment wherever possible, as the majority of our solutions integrate with technology that has been on the market for quite some time.
