First live satellite feed from NOAA's Lithiumstart powered weather buoys
The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has now completed initial field trials and launched the first set of Lithiumstart powered next generation SCOOP weather buoys off the coast of Santa Barbra and in the Gulf of Mexico. The stations stream live information via satellite feed 24x7, providing severe weather warnings and monitoring ocean and atmospheric trends. Lithiumstart also receives an xml telemetry feed with battery diagnostics, and will use the information to tune the next version of batteries to enable operation in ever widening temperature ranges and operating conditions. More background on SCOOP available here in an earlier news post.
