Each accelerometer is deployed on an ice floe of similar size - between 10 and 30 m diameter - in a line about 150 km long.

DEDS - DSTO Environmental Data Server

Rainbow House in conjunction with DSTO (defence science technology society) developed the DEDS, A system called the DSTO Environmental Data Server (DEDS) was recently made available to Defence in support of various study activities.

DSTO undertook to deliver DEDS as a way of providing rapid access to highfidelity terrain data and regional weather modelling, this material being crucial for research ventures such as battlespace simulations and capability modelling. The system was designed for simplicity of use and tight integration of environmental data with information on the Defence platforms in the study of performance and capability.

The DEDS was nominated for a DSTO award.
