CAE in Argentina

February 2023

The first major network installed by CAE abroad dates back to 2007, when the Instituto di Hidrologia de Llanura IHLLA, Azul, province of Buenos Aires, Argentina, set up CAE hydro-meteorological stations to monitor rainfall and levels in the upper part of the Arroyo Azul basin in order to promptly signal the state of alert in case of possible flooding and, secondly, with the aim of providing real-time meteorological information for the improvement of agricultural practices (to learn more click here).

The SPM20 technology network and data transmission via UHF radio network to the control centre continued to operate throughout all these years, thanks to the reliability of the equipment provided and the constant maintenance carried out by the IHLLA personnel.

As part of a project to strengthen the scientific-technological system with the aim of developing and improving the social and productive fabric of the territory of Buenos Aires, IHLLA has received funding that it has decided to invest in the purchase of new CAE technologies. The new project will make it possible to replace the SPM20 stations, CAE's flagship model until a decade ago, with the most innovative and high-performance CAEtech Compact dataloggers: programmable, user-friendly and powerful thanks to the openness of the software and the use of standard protocols that guarantee full and native compatibility with the existing system. These new technologies can be easily inserted into the existing network, preserving all current support infrastructures.

The new DATALIFE software platform will also be provided, a natural evolution of its predecessor Mercurio, better suited to modern cybersecurity and reliability needs.

IHLLA's investment also includes specialised technical training in Argentina, oriented to the knowledge of new technologies, the main functions and how they integrate into the existing network. This training is essential for the technical personnel of IHLLA to manage the network independently, with the remote support of CAE from Italy, and to continue maintenance operations to keep the network active and efficient over the course of the years.
