He added that especially in the consumer space sensor technology is constantly changing, with embedded FIFO buffers in sensors accumulating data that must be transferred in bursts to the host processor.
Commercial satellites thus allow strategic military users to focus their scarce military reconnaissance satellite on imagery intelligence (imint) and targeting, while commercial operators faced with huge tasking constraints rely on dedicated space sensor scheduling applications, such as the Satellite Toolkit from AGI, or the STK/Scheduler and Collection Planning & Analysis Worstation (CPAW) software from Orbitlogic.
So, with the exception of a controller mounted in the RTU with a space sensor, the current generation of technology cannot reuse the existing thermostat wires for communication between a controller in the space and one at the RTU.
To provide desirable thermal comfort, each type of space and each exposure of large open spaces was provided with its own individual space sensor and zone temperature control to closely follow the heating and cooling requirements of the spaces.
