Abstract:

A low power, unattended, ice station for collecting data has been developed to collect synoptic environmental data in polar regions for a period of two years. An array of 10 of these ice stations was installed 250-550 nautical miles north of the Alaskan coast during the spring of 1975. In each station, 24 hours worth of the most recent data, made up of eight 32-bit words, are retained in memory for burst transmission to the RAMS Random Access Measurement System receiver in the polar orbiting NIMBUS-F satellite. Surface platform location to a CPE of about 5 KM is obtained through doppler measurement of the transmitted signal.
