Malawi visit and LLNG station upgraded

During the mission to Southern Africa, Rui Fernandes visited the Surveys Department of Malawi, where he had a very successful meeting concerning future collaboration towards the implementation of a new reference frame for Malawi.

He also performed an upgrade on the LLNG station (installed in 2008 in collaboration with HartRAO, South Africa).

The new system, similar to the ones implemented in Nigeria and Angola, only needs a router to collect the data from the receiver and to send it to SEGAL and to SD. Since the station is located in the Government Compound, it was necessary to adapt the firmware to the existing security levels. The current status of the station can be checked at here.
