NESEP Real-Time Environmental Monitoring and Alert System (REMAS)

Proven. Reliable. Secure.

REMAS is a robust, real-time environmental data management system that measures, records, and analyzes data with alerting and on-site or web-based display. REMAS has a proven record enabling NAWCWD China Lake operations project schedule and test cadence, while ensuring data security and compliance.

OPERATIONS SUPPORT

REMAS provides US Navy personnel and stakeholders tools to support 24/7/365 situational awareness and contributes to mission planning, decision support, routine operations, test evaluation, ordnance and test safety, forensics, and disaster recovery.

REMAS provides outstanding indoor and outdoor environmental and weather awareness for ordnance development and test programs:

  • Thermal conditioning monitoring
  • Real-time multi-scale measurement and analysis
  • Site- and mission-specific weather forecasting
  • Results synthesized and displayed for at-a-glance understanding
  • Reduce cost; improve safety
  • Enables high-confidence preemptive scheduling to avoid adverse weather
