ELTA’s Argos data transmitters handle hostile environments


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: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
