The S-Pol Computer Network

S-Pol IHOP_2002, Oklahoma Panhandle
May/Jun 2002

The S-Pol radar system is supported by an extensive, on-site computer network. Various data processing, display and data transfer tasks are parcelled out to different computer systems, with data transfer occurring over as many as six local networks, with various links to remote networks (these links consisted of T1, WaveLan, and modem for S-Pol in IHOP). For a full description of realtime data handling at S-Pol, see documentation by VanAndel.

Refer to the network diagram for a quick idea of the complexity of the S-Pol network (diagram from Joe VanAndel).
