Further Information 

The DIT Satellite Centre provides a test bed for projects involving several aspects of Earth satellites.  Current projects involve Earth observation (two weather systems) and Global Positioning System (GPS) applications.  The activity in this centre is continually growing and is used by visiting ERASMUS students as well as our own for satellite projects.

The TRINET project is being run by the non-profit humanitarian Informatics Development Institute of which V. Thorne is a director.  TRINET is working to provide low-cost Internet access to remote regions of the developing world.  Recently four satellite ground stations have been shipped from the Satellite Centre in DIT Kevin Street to locations in Africa viz. Ghana, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.  These are now operational with technical support from the School.
