This project is being implemented to address the need of the Bureau of Soils and Water Management of the Department of Agriculture (DA-BSWM) proposal to upgrade their existing Automated Weather Stations (AWS) and deploy more AWS strategic locations. At least 100 AWS with upgraded Rain Gauges will be produced and installed. Using the GSM technology, data collected through these sensors will be transmitted to the centralized data server. Such data will be transformed into graphical representations which is accessible through a web based monitoring portal.

About Us

Over the years, the emergence of information and communications technology has greatly affected the lives of people in the world crossing borders among countries and bringing access closer to one another. In the same token, the birth of Microelectronics has resulted to progress in the development of smaller, lighter and more efficient electronic devices.

This development has a striking resemblance to the birth of one of the research and development institutes of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) – the Advanced Science and Technology Institute (ASTI). It was in 1987 when President Corazon C. Aquino renamed the then National Science and Technology Authority (NSTA) to Department of Science and Technology (DOST). As an offshoot of such sequential events, the DOST-ASTI was created as a research and development institute of the Department by virtue of Executive Order No. 128.
