3. Supply of Remote Radio Telemetry System
Snow Avalanche & Study Establishment Chandigarh awarded this project to IES India. This project comprises of 3 Snow Weather Monitoring Stations. The scope of the project included meteorological & snow sensors, data collection platform, VHF transmitter & data processing. After the success of this project IES was also awarded a repeat order of RRTS-II&RRTS-IV project.
India Meteorological Department
1. India Meteorological Department-India, IMDPS Project
IMD (Indian Meteorological Department) through DGS&D has awarded the project to IES. This was a global tender. This is a high tech project for setting a data processing center for INSAT 2E, which was launched in April 1999. The project involves the development of a system called IMDPS to collect and process imagery data from INSAT-2E Satellite. IMD used this information for weather forecasting. The system includes Data Ingestion System (DIS), Front End Processing System (FEPS), Data Base Server and Graphics Processing System (DSGP) and interface with the Regional Telecommunications Hub (RTH). All systems are duplicated to provide redundancy.
2. Supply of SDUC Workstation
IMD (Indian Meteorological Department) through DGS&D has awarded a contract to IES India for supply of 10 SDUC workstations. These workstations are used for real time analysis of satellite imageries. These are high-tech workstations and there are very few companies in the world who have capabilities to provide such functionalities as provided by IESI.
3. Supply of Automatic Weather Station
IESI supplied 15 AWS (Automatic Weather Stations) to India Meteorological Department, Pune. This was a global tender through DGS&D. It was awarded to IESI under competition from various large organization like – Electronic Corporation of India (ECIL) Govt. of India undertaking, GCEL (Govt. of Gujarat undertaking) etc.
4. Supply of Weather Information Distribution System
IESI has installed a weather information distribution system at two of the International Airports in India (Mumbai and Calcutta). These systems are used for dissemination of current weather information throughout the Air Traffic Control setup and this information is also passed to Pilots for their takeoff and landing procedures. IES is likely to install a few more such systems on other Airports in India. IESI has recently signed the Annual Maintenance Contract with this client for marinating the system for another year.
Central Water Commission
1. Supply of Flood Forecasting System
This is a turnkey project for supply, installation & commissioning of dam safety and flood forecasting systems in the Mahanadi & Chambal basins. This project was commissioned in the record time of 8 months. The Mahanadi and Chambal rivers in Eastern and Central India, respectively, often fold during the monsoon season. The Flood Monitoring and Forecasting System consists of supply and installation of fifty-five Remote Monitoring stations, measuring hydro-meteorological parameters such as water level, rainfall, temperature, humidity, evaporation, etc. along the banks of these two rivers. Information from these stations is beamed to satellite. Two satellite Reception Ground Stations have been installed in Jaipur and Burla for the reception of data and computer analysis. This data will enable the Central Water Commission of India to warn people, of possible floods, as well as provide valuable information to plan dams for agricultural irrigation. We have already signed a Maintenance Contract with the client for next three years (in addition to two years warranty).
2. Supply of River Discharge Measurement System
A high-tech system, “Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler” for the first time in India is being applied to river discharge measurement was supplied to the Central Water Commission by IES. Under this project, IES has been entrusted to supply, commission and Conduct Training for Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers for River Discharge Measurements. This contract was under the Hydrology Project funded by The World bank.
Municipal Corporation of greater Mumbai
1. Supply of Automatic Weather Station
In 2006, MCGM installed 30 Vantage pro2 Weather stations at all of its Fire Station to monitor the rainfall and other weather parameters under its disaster management plan. After the successful completion of the project, MCGM added 5 more Vantage pro2 Weather stations& a water level measurement station in 2008. After successful monitoring the weather parameters MCGM again added 25 Vantage pro2 Weather stations with IP based communication & collection of data at the central server in 2012.Now the complete system comprises of 60 AWS, 1 water level station and 2 servers.
Government of Andhra Pradesh
