Civil Tek has completed a real-time, embedded Ada Run-Time for the Arm Cortex-M3/M4 series processors. The code is based on the FSF Gcc Gnat Ada compiler and is compatible with the same GPLvs3 license with Runtime Exception.
We have moved to Birmingham, AL. Except for our Postal mail address our contact information is the same. Since most of our activities are through the internet we don’t anticipate any interruptions. Along with the move we’ve installed a new look to our website and upgraded our on-line apps for our project teams.
Gary took time out to collaborate with Brett Web and Sam Russ of the University of South Alabama on their drifter buoys for a Gulf of Mexico current study. Tracking a large group of drifter buoys is one of the best ways to measure the Lagrangian distribution of currents in the coastal zone. Brett’s buoy uses GPS for location and simplex satellite communication for real-time data reporting. Find out more and view some early results at Brett’s web site.
Civil Tek developed custom embedded software for the Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory, ERDC, Corps of Engineers. CHL deployed Civil Tek’s directional wave gages for over 10 years. So long, in fact, that the shore boxes Remote Transmission Units (RTU) needed replacement. The code allows the new ARM/Linux based RTUs to acquire and transfer data from the wave gages without changes to the instruments or the Corps’ central data management system.
Civil Tek’s Wave Watch wave gages have reached their end of life . The WW1D and WW3D are no longer available as standard products. Civil Tek will continue to develop custom wave gages and ocean instrumentation for clients. Contact us for more information.
