Mapping Earth’s Weather Calls For Extreme & Rugged Equipment

The rugged design and reliability of TOUGHBOOK devices enable data to be transmitted from remote climate stations in any conditions.

Panasonic TOUGHBOOK rugged devices have been selected by ASIAQ Greenland Survey, for use in collecting all-important weather information across Greenland that is the basis of global climatic surveys.

The rugged design and reliable connectivity delivered by Panasonic TOUGHBOOK allows ASIAQ Greenland Survey to continuously calibrate equipment and collect data such as weather patterns, environmental data, and mine extraction measurements from climate stations across Greenland – and transfer it back to the head office in the capital, Nuuk.

This is dependent on robust equipment that can deal with unpredictable and harsh weather conditions. In addition to rain, snow, and temperatures as low as -20°C, Panasonic TOUGHBOOK rugged notebooks need to withstand high volumes of dust and moisture; the latter being especially important when the ASIAQ Greenland Survey team is working at sea or in ports.

The new rugged Panasonic TOUGHBOOK notebooks are provided by Danish IT supplier, Northcom, continuing a long-standing relationship between Panasonic and ASIAQ Greenland Survey.

Angunnguag Boassen, IT Technologist at ASIAQ Greenland Survey, explains: ”With a large proportion of our work taking place in remote locations, our notebooks need to function reliably and without interruption – there isn’t the option for specialists to diagnose problems when we’re in the field. Our Panasonic TOUGHBOOK devices experience every type of weather, without experiencing any problems. The nature of our work means that devices are occasionally dropped, but we don’t need to worry. It is a significant mental and practical advantage to know that we can rely on our TOUGHBOOK devices to carry out our work.”
