A SCADAmetrics Bell-202 Modem was recently deployed in support of a successful high-altitude research mission launched from Svalbard, Norway — led by the New Mexico State University Physical Science Laboratory.

The New Mexico State University Physical Science Laboratory (PSL) is a world-recognized leader in sub-orbital platforms, information modeling for predictive decision-making, specialized intelligence community support, advanced NASA scientific exploration and experimentation, homeland security sensing and detection technologies, and advanced weapons and countermeasures development and testing.

NMSU Professor Andrew Denney utilized the SCADAmetrics Model B202 to replace a telemetry modem that was based upon the legacy TCM3105 chipset, which is no longer manufactured. SCADAmetrics’ modern design incorporates the CML Micro MX614 chipset, which is an updated version of the TCM3105 — and it is readily available.

Included below are project photos that were generously shared by Dr. Denney:
