Modems

Raven CDMA

Raven CDMA C3210, C3211 and XT / Airlink Communications

 


 








 

 

 

 




The AirLink Raven CDMA
is a rugged, intelligent wireless data platform designed to enable real-time, two-way communications with remote assets. The AirLink Embedded Operating System (ALEOS) is the power inside the Raven. ALEOS has its own embedded TCP/IP stack which enables transmission of serial data from non-IP devices. ALEOS enables several functions including remote configuration and diagnostics, packet assembly and disassembly (PAD) for UDP or TCP, and telemetry protocol spoofing and conversion. The Raven CDMA is a powerful and versatile communications device.

AirLink offers a variety of solutions to enable many telemetry applications to operate in the dynamic IP addressing environment of CDMA/1XRTT networks. ALEOS, in conjunction with AirLink IP Manager, enables applications to address remote devices by name (e.g. remote1.ddns.company.com). This dynamic DNS (DDNS) function is done automatically and securely any time the IP of the device changes. AirLink IP Manager then updates a DNS server. ALEOS can update IP assignment to host applications in addition to or instead of the AirLink IP Manager.

The unique intelligence within ALEOS enables virtually any type of remote device to connect via the public CDMA/1XRTT network. It can be used to replace existing landline, private radio, CDPD, and circuit-switched installations.

Argonaut-SL

 


The Argonaut-SL (Side-Looking) is designed for horizontal operation, making a remote velocity measurement from an underwater structure (pier, bridge, channel, etc.) while allowing a simple and secure instrument mounting. The Argonaut-SL measures 2D currents in an adjustable measurement volume located at a range up to 120 m. The Argonaut-SL can be used for real-time or autonomous applications.

The Argonauts belong to a class of instruments known as monostatic Doppler current meters. Monostatic refers to the fact that the same transducer is used as transmitter and receiver. A monostatic Doppler uses a set of acoustic transducers with precisely known relative orientations. Each transducer produces a narrow beam of sound perpendicular to the transducer face. The operation of a 3D Argonaut (with three transducers)

During operation, each transducer produces a short pulse of sound at a known frequency that propagates along the axis of the acoustic beam. Sound from the outgoing pulse is reflected ("scattered") in all directions by particulate matter in the water. Some portion of the scattered energy travels back along the beam axis to the transducer. This return signal has a frequency shift proportional to the velocity of the scattering material. This frequency change (Doppler shift), as measured by the Argonaut, is proportional to the projection of the water velocity onto the axis of the acoustic beam. By combining data from three beams, and knowing the relative orientation of those beams, the Argonaut measures the 3D velocity. In the same manner, the Argonaut-SL measures 2D velocity in the plane defined by its two acoustic beams.
