Solar Power for Remote Space Telescope

Case Studies

The Black Stump Technologies Mobile Solar Power Station (DSTG Variant) was specifically engineered to provide autonomous power to suit the requirements of the remote telescope’s electronics package and provide an on-site working environment for staff. As the unit is expected to be deployed in the remote South Australian desert, special attention was paid to keeping the electronics and staff work space cools, as well as a remote internet connection, to allow operation and monitoring from Adelaide.

The Australian designed and manufactured equipment is robust to ensure continuous operation and is supplied as a packaged system for easy turn-key installation.
