General Information about Network & Structure of RTDAS for all basins in Maharashtra State under National Hydrology Project (NHP)

RTDAS Structure  
Real Time Data Acquisition System works in following three steps:

Data Collection Platform (DCP):
This is the platform where the sensors are mounted. The DCP supplies power to various sensors, charges the battery using solar panels, stores the data in the data logger and provides protection to equipment from dust, water and theft. Most stations in a real-time network are required to run on battery power packs with solar charging since there might not be any power connections.

Telemetry Device:
This device receives data from the DCP (data logger) and transmits them to data centres via an appropriate telemetry method. The telemetry proposed under the project is based on technologies such as the Global System for Mobile (GSM)/ General Packet Radio Service (GPRS), Indian National Satellite System (INSAT) and Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT).

Database Management System:

  1. Data from all Stations are received at existing earth station at Delhi/Jaipur/Burla.
  2. This data is routed to e-SWIS / WIMS Server and to State Data Centre, Nashik through existing software at earth station.
  3. State data centre at Nashik receives and store all this data in server.
  4. Application software encodes all this data and presents in prescribed format on desktop.
  5. Application software has facility to view historical data.
  6. It has also facility to export data in prescribed format for third party application.
  7. Under the new set-up of National Hydrology Project, India Water Resource Information System-WRIS will be fully integrated with the existing eSWIS / WIMS system. India WRIS will be the dissemination platform to be accessed by internal and public users (front end), whereas eSWIS / WIMS will be the data management platform for internal users (back end).
