The large test area ATC can offer around the island of Andoya presents a few challenges when it comes to sensors and data gathering. Which is why such infrastructure is highly mobile; telemetry nodes are airlifted to the optimum locations prior to each test.
A new mobile telemetry platform, however, has been developed by ATC to complement the semi-mobile nodes. Hooked up to a truck, the new platform will allow ATC to quickly respond to changes. Together with the mobile telemetry platform owned by Andøya Rocket Range, ATC is able to offer data gathering to greater extent than before.
The mobile nodes and the large, low-density airspace is ideal for testing of aerospace and ship based applications.
