Been there, done that.

Back in 98 or so (whatever year the ken-cam came out) I used that to snag two tornadoes in real time, sent the pix to our eoc, and they emailed them to nws on arrival.

I think you could take the human out of the loop, but I'm not sure it's a good idea.

National Weather Service office and I asked them if any of the supporting hams 
(I know that they do help out during Weather Spotting Need" has mentioned SSTV 
in addition to the small amount of APRS and auto WX reporting that I know is 
done.   They told me that SSTV had never been brought up and they knew 
nothing about it.   From some past years experience I know that the 
word descriptions given by Spotters can be confusing and I would like to know if 
we can send images in addition to the verbal reports in times of

  Why SSTV? Why not just a 500mW- 910Mhz TXR and a 
  $17 board camera from Hong Kong?
  I use the 200mW and 500mW version in my RC 
   The cameras are from here:
  They carry 420, 480, 520 line board cameras, and 
  all operate off of 12v.
  Just would need high gain antennas w/az&el to 
  track it. But you already have the Lat/Lon/alt so shouldn't be too
