And here’s a link to a research paper written using data from its predecessor (warning: it’s a real page-turner!)
This new boat is helping to calibrate the sensor readings from an orbiting satellite. I designed the electronics for it, and in this case our customer was a scientist at JPL who does research in Greenland and is also a project scientist for the Mars Science Laboratory. What a cool coincidence!
I can’t find any references to Panda, FEZ, or GHI in either of the documents. This really needs to get over into the project showcase. Iggmoe, do you have any more pics or details you can share regarding how the Panda is used in this project?
I’d love to share specific implementation details, but it would have to be blessed by upper management first, since the boat is a commercial product, and the bosses are rather careful about IP. Maybe in a future post.
I’m really loving the stuff GHI offers. FEZ’s ability to get products to market so quickly is quite phenomenal. I can only imagine all the awesome applications that we don’t hear about, which is the reason why I decided to post this project now. I may not be able to show you the guts of the thing, but at least you know what it’s used for!
In the next few months, the G120 is gonna find itself inside a high-power radio and an oceanographic instrument, and likely several other products.
