ELTA’s Argos data transmitters handle hostile environments

16.08.2005


ELTA of France is looking for international distributors for its latest range of Argos data transmitters – the HAL-2 and the VHAL-2. These new high-performance products have been designed to operate in the most hostile environments. Argos – with more than 11,000 active platforms throughout the whole world – has become the preferred system for observing and monitoring the environment on a worldwide scale.



The new-generation Argos HAL-2 (High Accuracy Locator) transmitter has an excellent and reliable frequency stability, making it possible to pinpoint objects to an accuracy of between 300 metres and 400 metres. The VHAL-2 (Very High Accuracy Locator) transmitter is fitted with an integrated GPS device. It enables even more accurate pinpointing, to within a few metres, while at the same time retaining the same general characteristics and overall performance as the HAL-2.

The HAL-2 and VHAL-2 have an exceptional frequency stability. Owing to their very low electric-power consumption (less than 50µA), highly elaborate miniaturisation and sturdiness, this new range can be adapted to all environmental applications, even the most demanding and critical.


As a former Argos data-collecting platform (DCP) manufacturer, ELTA took into consideration all the requirements of DCP integrators and users during the design phase of its new transmitters. These products are virtually compatible so as to be able to be integrated into any data-collecting system, i.e. a data-collecting platform (meteorological, hydrological, seismological, volcano monitoring), collecting or transmission system, mobile-device tracking solution, and so on.

ELTA is seeking commercial partners to distribute its Argos transmitters internationally, in particular distributors whose customers are integrators or solutions providers for mobile-device tracking, monitoring of the environment, industrial risk management and/or data collection in hostile environments.

Im Focus: Powerful IT security for the car of the future – research alliance develops new approaches

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.

Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
