Satellite Digital Imaging System
  • Brief History
    • In 1995, CAP standardized on Slow Scan TV as the video system for CAP.
    • In 1997-1998 the first systems were deployed to the regions.
      • Equipment took up most of the back seat
      • Used CAP VHF-FM Frequencies causing interference problems.
      • Resolution was not good.

  • Brief History – Continued
    • In January 2003, the Advanced Technology Group was challenged to provide a better resolution system for delivering video for CAP.
      • Members of the Naval Research Lab studied the available methods and recommended utilizing the Globalstar Satellite Phone system for sending video.
      • First mission tested in the Florida Keys in April 2003.

  • Systems delivered to regions beginning the summer of 2003.
    • Each region has 2 complete systems and one additional tray.
  • Several wings are currently purchasing their own systems thanks to local government grants.

  • Addressing & sending

E-Mail Message

Use E-Mail Groups instead

of long lists of addresses.

Subject line will be the image caption.

Last line must be the WMIRS

Signature block.

  • Message is spooled in the computer
  • The spooler will connect to Globalstar and send messages until all are sent
  • You may continue to send and the new messages will be sent in turn
  • If the connection is lost, the spooler will retry until a new connection is made.

  • E-mail delivery is the primary method
  • WMIRS should is used for archiving images
  • WMIRS Format for message
    • Subject line will be the WMIRS caption
    • Last line must be WMIRS MISSION: XXX
      • For WMIRS to recognize

  • Important Notes:
    • Practice with a regular phone dialup internet connection from any location
    • Configure address groups in advance
    • Test computer and camera during preflight
    • Send a practice picture after startup
    • After downloading your camera pictures remember to delete downloaded pictures or they will be downloaded again during the next download

Satellite Time is Expensive

Ensure the system is used for

mission essential purposes only!!

Each RCOM-100 is on a 120 minute monthly plan (no rollover.) Minutes in excess of the plan that have not been pre-approved by the National Operations Center will be billed to the responsible region
