ASTI-implemented projects on disaster mitigation

  • Development of Hybrid Weather Monitoring System and Production of Weather and Rain Automated Stations (Completed)
    - Developed and deployed a network of automated weather stations (AWS) and automated rain gauges (ARGs) in strategic locations around the country.
  • Development of a Field Monitoring (FMON) System (Completed)
    - Developed a working prototype of the field monitoring system, which is capable of acquiring environmental information, necessary for agricultural research studies as well as crop production.
  • Development of a Flood Monitoring System (Completed)
    - Developed and deployed Water Level Monitoring Stations (WLMS).
  • Development of a Low-Cost and Locally-Designed Meteorological Buoy (On-going)
    - Developed a low-cost and sustainable meteorological buoy system to help improve maritime safety and to enhance the meteorological observation system and weather forecasting capability of the country.
  • Establishment of a Cost-Effective Local Tsunami Warning System for Selected High-Risk Coastal Communities of the Philippines (Completed)
    - Developed and deployed a local tsunami warning system for high-risk coastal communities located in tsunami-prone trenches.
  • Emergency Distribution of Hydrometeorological Devices in Hard-hit Areas in the Philippines (On-going)
    - Fabrication and installation of 400 water level monitoring stations (WLMS) and 600 automated rain gauges (ARG) in 18 critical river basins.
  • Nationwide Disaster Risk Exposure, Assessment, and Mitigation (DREAM) Program - Project 1: LIDAR and INSAR Data Acquisition (On-going)
    - The project intends to acquire nationwide spatial data in 3-dimension (3D), which will be used to generate detailed and high-resolution base and thematic maps.
  • Nationwide Disaster Risk Exposure, Assessment, and Mitigation (DREAM) Program - Project 3: Extracting Digital Elevation Models and Salient Features for Flood Modelling (On-going)
    - The project focuses on flood modeling and flood hazard assessment. The main objective is to obtain the Digital Surface Model (DSM) of each watershed and floodplain area, and extract the Digital Terrain Model (DTM) from the derived DSM. ASTI automates the manual processes; hosts data and application; and assists in data dissemination.
  • Establishment of Agro-Meteorological Stations in Highly Vulnerable Agricultural Areas: A Tool for Climate Change Adaptation and in the Development of Local Early Warning System (On-going)
    - The project addresses the need of the Bureau of Soils and Water Management of the Department of Agriculture (DA-BSWM) to upgrade their existing Automated Weather Stations (AWS) and deploy more AWS in strategic locations. At least 94 AWS and 94 Standard Manual Rain Gauges will be produced and installed.
  • Multicast Experiment Using the WINDS Satellite (On-going)
    - The WINDS is a Japan-led initiative on disaster monitoring and management. The Sentinel Asia, a voluntary basis initiative led by the Asia-Pacific Regional Space Agency Forum in supporting disaster management activity in the Asia-Pacific region, used WINDS in disaster monitoring and fast data dissemination. Several disaster organizations in the Philippines acquire information from Sentinel Asia with ASTI's assistance. A number of disaster management-related data were transmitted, via WINDS infrastructure.
