Princess Elisabeth Antarctica is linked!
The International Polar Foundation (IPF) and global satellite operator SES S.A. have successfully completed the installation and tests of the SES satellite ground station in Antarctica.
A crew of SES specialists joined the BELARE team to run tests and launch the operations. The new infrastructure will now make a significant contribution to scientific research by offering real-time data transfer from Antarctica, and will allow the Princess Elisabeth Station to be monitored online, thus ensuring best efficiency from the micro smart grid capabilities in energy management.
