Weather data for nautical information system

Weather data for nautical information system
24/01/2019

In Lemwerder, Germany at the Weser River, wind direction and speed are measured and transferred in 60 second intervals via the OTT netDL 1000. The data is transmitted, wireless, over a distance of 600 meters to the radar tower in Ritzenbuettel, where it is integrated into the ship traffic network - the Authority for Water and Navigation (WSA), Bremen. The WSA is also responsible for monitoring the traffic network for safety conditions.

Each hour, a status report including the current water levels, weather reports, visibility range and important incidents in the area is sent out to assist navigating the waters. Since 2013, the system has been providing valid data, without any gaps for over two years.
