François Beauducel

Access to your sensor data transmitted through the Argos satellite system, Collecte Localisation Satellite, Toulouse / Washington

PAD lets you display your Argos data using simple commands entered through a PC-type microcomputer. PAD is for Argos system users who operate data acquisition platforms and want an easy way to:

These operations need only a few commands, making it feasible to access your data daily. To keep it simple, PAD does not include scientific calculations: these are too specific to each application. PAD prepares data files in standard ASCII format for input to your own scientific programs, spreadsheets, database management systems, etc.
