AREN based project funding success – July 2006

Thursday, July 20th, 2006

John Ronan (EI7IG) and Dr. Sven van der Meer of the Irish National IPv6 Centre, Waterford Institute of Technology, have successfully applied for funding to investigate if Position Reporting Systems, Map Display/Overlay systems coupled with mathematical methods can be used to reduce the workload and/or help in the decision making process of a Search and Rescue Scene Commander. The project will run for a duration of 12 months, and is due to start later this year.

The proposal is based on the work and experience gained by Tipperary Amateur Radio Group and AREN with positioning technology (APRS) over the last few years and the relationships built up with the Glen of Aherlow Failte Society and the South East Mountain Rescue Association.
