Info-Electronics Systems (IES) has a vast amount of project experience in the national and international arena.
We deal with project design, management and execution for software development and also with the integration, customization, installation, maintenance, training and support of systems in the fields of Meteorology, Hydrology, Remote Sensing and Environmental Monitoring.
We have detailed knowledge of end-to-end requirements for such systems, of which the following examples present some major projects in which IES has been involved:

GreenHouse Gas (GHG) Monitoring System
 Client: National Physical Laboratory (India)

In partnership with Picarro Inc., IES supplied, installed and commissioned a GreenHouse Gas (GHG) Analyzer for continuous measurement of carbon dioxide and methane for the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) in Palampur, India, which aims to work as a WMO-GAW-compliant site. We are currently providing maintenance and support services. Picarro is a leading provider of solutions to measure GHG concentrations, trace gases and stable isotopes.

Microwave Radiometers Network
 Client: Indian Air Force

In partnership with Radiometrics Corporation (a world leader developer of ground-based microwave radiometers for atmospheric remote sensing and atmospheric profiling), this IES project was for the supply, installation, commissioning and maintenance of a network of twenty (20) Microwave Radiometers, including host and laptop computers and Central Server and Display Computers for the Indian Air Force (IAF). Radiometrics supplied the instruments, while IES provided the software development, computer and network hardware, installation, integration, training, testing, acceptance, maintenance and support.

EOADP Project: Inland Bodies Water Mapping with RADARSAT-2
 Client: Natural Resources Canada (NRCan)

For this Earth Observation Application Development Program (EOADP) project, IES developed in collaboration with the Centre de Recherché Informatique de Montréal a system to improve and update the existing mapping of inland water bodies as well as finding new objects using RADARSAT-2 data. The project extended the capabilities of the automatic updating and extraction of hydrography from SPOT-5 imagery “AutoCarto” software to RADARSAT-2 images and improved the quality of the existing products, in the context of managing surface water resource information expected to be affected by climate change.

Supply of Automatic Weather Stations (AWS)
 Client: Snow and Avalanche Study Establishment (SASE), India

IES supplied twenty Automatic Weather Stations with communications through INSAT and ARGOS satellites for the Snow and Avalanche Study Establishment (SASE) in India, integrating over a dozen meteorological parameters with Microcom Design datalogger/transmitters and redundant autonomous power sources. Each station included sensors for air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, albedo, net radiation, snow depth, precipitation and soil temperature, among others.

Environmental Sensing Capability – Polar Epsilon Project

The Polar Epsilon project involved the provision, integration and installation of MODIS Satellite Earth Reception Systems, computers, software and associated data processing storage and display components for the East and West coasts of Canada (Halifax/Masstown, N.S. and Esquimalt/Aldergrove, B.C.). Services such as Site Surveys, Radio Frequency Interference Analysis, project management, training, installation, testing, support and maintenance and documentation were also included. IES provided software and services and partnered with Global Imaging to provide ground systems hardware and software.

ULTIMA - Weather Briefing System

ULTIMA was a state-of-the-art Weather Briefing Workstation which integrated, processed, and handled SADIS and ISCS meteorological data for WAFS systems, including textual and graphical information. ULTIMA was installed for various customers around the world, including
 Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation (MOTCA) of Afghanistan
 Civil Aviation Caretaker Authority for Somalia (CACAS), Kenya
 NAV CANADA, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
 Department of Civil Aviation (DCA), Brunei Darussalam
 Instituto Nacional de Aeronáutica Civil (I.N.A.C.), Venezuela
 Weathernews Inc. (WNI), Norman, OK, USA
 CINDACTA I - National Aviation Weather Center Brazil
 Jose Marti International Airport ECASA, Cuba
 Hong Kong Observatory
 Bahrain Meteorological Service

MSC- GVAR Replacement
 Client: Meteorological Service of Canada

This project involved the replacement of the old GVAR equipment to operate with the new satellite GOES-12 for the Meteorological Service of Canada (MSC). We offered a system which was provided by Global Imaging. The project included installation, training and three years extended maintenance warranty. We are currently providing support and maintenance services.

Tiger Project: Water Prospecting Using Remote Sensing
 Client: Agence du Bassin Hydraulique du Souss-Massa (Morocco)

The Canadian Space and European Space Agencies’ Earth Observation for Integrated Water Resource Management in Africa project, called “TIGER”, proposed the development of a Decision Support System for Water Resource Management based on GIS, remote sensing data and auxiliary data technologies for the Souss-Massa basin in Morocco. For this project, IES partnered with the Centre Royal de Télédétection Spatiale (CRTS) in Morocco and the Geography Department of the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM).

The INSAT-2E Meteorological Data Processing System (IMDPS)
 Client: Indian Meteorological Department

IES developed and installed a system called the INSAT Meteorological Data Processing System (IMDPS), to collect and process imagery data from India's INSAT-2E satellite. Imagery is used by the India Meteorological Department for weather forecasting. The system includes Data Ingestion System (DIS), Front-End Processing System (FEPS), Database Server Graphics Processing System (DSGP) and interface with the Regional Telecommunications Hub (RTH). All systems were duplicated to provide redundancy. The project was implemented with the assistance of Sepia Technologies of Canada, and was one of the most complex technologies dealing with the processing of remote sensing satellites.

The Flood-Monitoring & Forecasting System
 Client: Central Water Commission for India

This World Bank-supported project involved of the supply and implementation of a Flood Forecasting System for the Mahanadi and Chambal river basins in India, which often flood during the monsoon season. The project consisted of fifty-five (55) remote monitoring stations measuring hydro-meteorological parameters such as water level, rainfall, temperature, humidity, evaporation, etc. along the banks of the rivers, equipped with Data Collection Platforms and satellite transmitters to send that information via satellite. Two Satellite Reception Ground Stations were installed in Jaipur and Burla for the reception of the data and computer analysis. This data would enable the Central Water Commission of India to warn people of possible floods, as well as provide valuable information to plan dams for agricultural irrigation.
