Satellites for smart logging
Paris (ESA) Oct 23, 2014
Satcomm birds are helping to save our trees through more efficient use of our forests. Satellites are mapping forests, sending instructions to loggers, monitoring tree-harvesting machinery and coordinating log transport almost in real time. The Treemetrics company in Ireland, supported by ESA, has developed an all-encompassing device that uses hybrid satellite and terrestrial communications, and GPS. The display gives detailed mapping information, showing a harvesting machine's driver which trees ... read more
