Harsh Environments; Remote Power
The IDL has designed and built systems for data acquisition and supporting power systems in several remote locations.
On the Antarctic plateau, temperatures routinely reach -70C while in the Utah desert equipment must operate in a high temperature environment.
Units built by the IDL, such as the calibration unit shown at the right, have been deployed in 2800m of water, and endured crushing ice pressures.
Power systems from 10W continuous to 180W continuous have been deployed.
