Midt i stømmen af nyheder og kommetarere ovenpå jihad angrebet i Bryssel, som holder MSM og parasit-klassen travlt beskæftiget med at forklare, at det så absolut intet, som i intet intet, har med islam eller muhammedaner import at gøre, kan vi lige så godt bruge tid på noget helt andet.
Således meddeler Official Gazette, at Filippinerne i dag vil få opsendt en sattelit designet og bygget af filippinere. Sattelitten skal blandt andet nyttigt, anvendes til grænsekontrol. Sattelitten har kostet i omegnen af 115 millioner danske kroner. Fra meddelelsen:
The potential uses of DIWATA include: improved weather detection and forecasts, disaster risk management, detecting agricultural growth patterns, and the monitoring of forest cover, mining, protection of cultural and historical sites, and the territorial borders of the Philippines.
DIWATA was turned over to the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) to prepare for its launch into space this month. With DIWATA, comes the Filipino dream to have its own Philippine Space Agency.
More than this, the potential uses of Diwata’s images include improved weather detection and forecasts, disaster risk management, detecting agricultural growth patterns, and the monitoring of forest cover, mining, protection of cultural and historical sites, and the territorial borders of the Philippines. Diwata will be sending vital images and data back to Philippine Earth Data Resources and Observation (PEDRO) Center which was set up to receive data from the satellite
Details of Diwata
DIWATA 1 is equipped with a high precision telescope (HPT) that can determine the extent of damages from disasters, like typhoons and volcanic eruptions. It can also monitor changes in cultural and natural heritage sites, like the Mount Apo or Mayon Volcano.
Its spaceborne multispectral imager (SMI) with LCTF will be able to monitor changes in vegetation and monitor oceans productivity.
It also carries a wide field camera that will help scientists and weather forecasters better observe cloud patterns and more accurately predict weather disturbances.
Its middle field camera assists in determining the locations of images captured using the HPT and SMI.
