Network Design with Contrail® ALERT2 TDMA Manager
Visualize and design your real-time monitoring network, tracking capacity, available capacity, and data latency. Contrail ALERT2 TDMA Manager enables realistic ALERT2 network design in visual form.
Building successful hydrologic monitoring and flood warning systems needed for effective and timely decision making, rests on collecting real-time environmental data automatically, so users know where it’s raining and how fast the water is rising. For more than 40 years, ALERT early warning systems (EWS) have served those with responsibilities in flood warning, dam safety and reservoir operations, water resource management, and broader areas of environmental hazards monitoring and predicting. ALERT2 is the modern successor to the ALERT (Automated Local Evaluation in Real Time) protocol that was first developed in the 1970’s at the National Weather Service (NWS) California River Forecast Center. The next generation ALERT2 wireless communications protocol is optimized for the transport of real-time meteorologic and hydrologic data over radio telemetry networks.
