The goal of the meeting is show the progress of the CAP SARIM development and to enlist their assistance in the next phase of the project which is to develop long range transmission capacities for the CAP SARIM system. There ATV (Amateur Radio Television) repeater system would be an ideal system for the CAP SARIM to interface to for its intended mission of Search and Rescue, and Emergency Disaster Damage Assessment.
More details on ATV can be found at the following web pages:
