Brief description

The Davies Reef Base Station performs two functions. The first is to act as a collection point for the sensor network platforms deployed within the reef and to in turn send the data back to the AIMS Data Centre. The second is as a platform for sensors with current sensors including two underwater PAR sensors and a still camera.

The base station is co-located with the AIMS Automatic Weather Station on the Davies Reef Tower in order to optimise the use of power and communications infrastructure.


The base station provides the link between the on-water platforms and the mainland systems, it polls each of the sensor floats and collects the data and then forwards this over a Telstra nextG link to the mainland and the AIMS Data Centre.

The base station also hosts its own sensors, currently these include underwater PAR and a still camera.
