[aprssig] Autonomous EMCOMM Telemetry

I am actually doing a similar thing right now as a little side project for work using our commercial wx gear.

 

It started out as just a simple way to display the encoded data to verify the calibration, but I was thinking the exact same thing last night LOL

Has anyone come up with an APRS-based environmental telemetry sensor for EMCOMM use?

 

Specifically...having a "sensor/APRS kit" that one could drop-or-deploy into a theater and let it beacon back telemetry that would be of use to emergency first and second responders.

 

Examples:

*	Wind speed, wind direction, temperature, humidity ... for chemical spills or forest fires
*	Water level ... to help manage flooding
*	Air transparency ... to help manage air pollution

 

Either drop-and-forget (like around a forest fire) or purposefully deploy (like, ahead of a flooding event)...but with the expressed purpose of providing valued telemetry of known quality.

 

Anything?
