End year 2018 Deployment region United States of America
Short description

A ten-station BB network will be installed and operated across the northern half of Namibia for 2 years. The project is supported by De Beers. The BB sensors will be provided by Nyblade and Grand. Nyblade will also supply some RT130s. The remainder of the RT130s plus power boards and solar panels are requested from Passcal. This network will complement a 20-station network that is being installed using NARS equipment in Botswana. Mark van der Meijde from the Univ. of Twente in the Netherlands is the lead PI on that project, and Nyblade is a co-PI. The combined networks (Botswana + Namibia) will fill in a large data gap in SW Africa.
