Water, ice, and snow monitoring


An effective solution to managing remote bodies of water, snow, and ice

Many remote water, ice, and snow management locations are well outside of normal cellular coverage, and responsible organizations require reliable satellite network communications to send important hydrologic data safely. Nupoint camera systems allow you to collect this information from your remote water, ice, and snow management sites. Some examples are:


  • Flood monitoring
  • Gauge stations and water reservoirs (levels and water quality)
  • Canal monitoring (levels, routing, flow, water quality)
  • Stormwater (highway runoff)
  • Water pipelines (water flow)
  • Watershed (water quality)
  • Water sediment (flow rates)
  • Flood forecasting and warning/alarm systems
  • Dyke management
  • River flow gauging
  • Photos to confirm or disprove anomalous station readings

Ice and Snow

  • Infrastructure monitoring—bridges, storage buildings, roads, tunnels and passes (monitoring snow and ice levels)
  • Mountains (avalanche monitoring)
  • Snowfall depth
  • Ice-clogged streams and rivers (ice monitoring)

Save on travel costs

Our remote monitoring systems are tailored to meet the operational needs of those overseeing remote water, snow, and ice sites. They deliver regular updates, reduce the need for on-site visits, preserving budgets for other priorities while simultaneously enhancing worker safety.

Robust water, ice and snow management remote monitoring systems

Aerimis remote monitoring systems are effective, proven-in-the-field communication tools built by engineers with remote field experience:

  • Sturdy reliable equipment designed to operate in remote harsh environments
  • Lightweight, rugged, and easy to set up and configure*
  • Cost-effective satellite data communication tools using the Iridium satellite network

It’s a game changer

“This remote satellite camera is a game changer for the hydrometric world in general.”
Canadian Environmental Water Survey

This system has exactly what we need

“We had been looking for satellite camera solution for more than a year when we found exactly what we needed in this system. Because it fit our needs exactly, we were able to make a quick purchasing decision. We really like that it is portable, lightweight, and takes up almost no room in a plane or helicopter. Installation was easy, and my boss loves that the communications portal is through email. We expect this remote satellite camera will reduce our traveling to remote sites, and that’s a significant saving since each trip costs an average of $7,000.”
