With a special thanks to PEACESAT, IEPAS’ RAPIDCast broadcast and service is now operational. The broadcast has been running on GE23 via Pactel for sometime, however, we have been testing and needed to prove a ground station. PEACESAT assembled a station at their facilities in Hawaii earlier. Today we were able to confirm receipt of test files, after some minor changes to the broadcast and ground station client setup. IEPAS will be working with partners for the remainder of the calendar year to identify our first field deployments and to prepare equipment. We hope to begin deployments in early 2013.
