MinFarm OMNI - SCADA / IoT over Satellite Bridge

MinFarm OMNI - SCADA / IoT over Satellite Bridge

The MinFarm OMNI provides edge intelligence and a wide range of interfaces to narrow band satellite terminals. This allows you to use any SCADA, IoT or IP device easily and in an optimized data transmission manner with leading narrow band terminals like the Inmarsat and Viasat IDP, FT, and coming OGx services. Have you considered using low-capex, low-opex, low-power satellite terminals for your remote application?

Have you been put off by concerns around uncontrolled data usage over satellite and the complexities of power and interfacing with the satellite equipment? Do you want a system that is already designed to forward your data to SCADA servers, AWS, Azure, The Things Network and https endpoints? Do you want the most optimized system available? Do you want an easy-to-use mqtt and ftp server running locally to make sending single packets and entire files a breeze? Do you want a resilient file transfer protocol designed for the harshest environments with multiple retries and selective block acknowledgement? If so, The MinFarm OMNI is for you.

Carry-on Kit For Monitoring Goods On Bulk Cargo Vessels

This use case involves monitoring the health of goods during a voyage on a bulk cargo vessel. The requirements include:

  • A small and light kit that can be carried on a backpack by one installer
  • An easy to install kit that attaches securely to a railing of the vessel
  • 60 day autonomous operation from a small and light battery
  • Satellite backhaul that is independent of the ship's communications systems
  • Omni-directional satellite antenna that allows the kit to be installed anywhere on the vessel and can be used while the vessel is at sea without having to know the route in advance
  • The LoRaWAN sensors report once per hour, but the sampling rate required by the application is one uplink every 6 hours (4 uplinks per day)
  • 20 LoRaWAN sensors are deployed in the holds
