Network Design & Stations

Test cases and experiments were discussed intensively by the project team. All project partners investigated the initial station selection about feasibility of installing active transponders and about SAR reflection properties of the nearby environment (accessibility; local tie possibility w.r.t. tide gauge and/or GNSS; obstacles surrounding the site; radio frequency interference). For the selected stations, approval from national authorities to operate active instruments at specific locations was acquired before installation.

The final network design is shown in the picture below.

Loksa, Estonia

ECR_ID: 18_0098
Operator: TUT
Location: 25.70586265°E, 59.58255145°N
Remarks: Initially, the ECR was mounted to the site between 14.02.2020 and 28.09.2020. Due to malfunction, the ECR had to be dismounted and sent for repairs, after which the ECR was remounted to the site. This caused height-wise change in the coordinates.

Vergi, Estonia

ECR_ID: 18_0086
Operator: TUT
Location: 26.10078763°E, 59.60148885°N
Remarks: Initially, the ECR was mounted to the site between 03.03.2020 and 10.09.2020. Due to malfunction, the ECR had to be dismounted and sent for repairs, after which the ECR was remounted to the site. This caused a height-wise change in the coordinates.
