Remote & Harsh Locations; Renewable Power

Build instrumentation that can survive the harsh conditions . 

The IDL has developed skills, born of experience, for operating in remote locations.  Extreme temperatures, high pressure, high humidity are some of the harsh conditions that require special considerations.


There are several Antarctic examples for the 2013-2014 season in addition to renewable power, described below:

Provide renewable energy for ongoing field experiments. 


The IDL has been developing renewable sources of power for small experiments in remote and harsh locations:  the Antarctic plateau with limited sunlight and -70C temperatures, and the Utah desert with high temperatures and longer communication distances.  These stations use the IDL's System Health Monitor (SHM) for control, data collection, and communications.
