Huntington Botanical Gardens
We are presently fielding Sensor Webs at the Huntington Botanical Gardens in San Marino,
CA. The gardens, with their wide variety of plant life and microclimates, are an ideal
site for showing the capabilities of Sensor Webs.

Malheur Experiment Station
We are presently fielding a Sensor Web in potato fields at the
Malheur Experiment Station. This Sensor Web is being used to
understand how various types of irrigation (furrow, sprinkler, and
drip) affect the potato crop.
Nevada Mountains, California
We are presently working with researchers at UC Merced to understand the snow
pack in the Sierra Nevada mountains. This deployment provides a
unique opportunity to use the Sensor Web in a highly dynamic
environment with both heavy amounts of precipitation and cold
Sevilleta, New Mexico
We are presently fielding a Sensor Web in the Sevilleta National Wildlife
Refuge in central New Mexico. This arid desert provides not only an extreme
environment with which to test the technology but also a means to do
significant ecological research using the Sensor Web.
We fielded a Sensor Web in the recharge basins just outside Tucson,
Arizona. This deployment provided a unique opportunity to use the
Sensor Web to study the spatio-temporal aspects of dynamic
phenomena, in this case the controlled flooding of the basin.
A research team deployed a Sensor Web in a remote region of Antarctica
for three weeks (Dec 2002 - Jan 2003). This deployment was particularly
exciting, showing that the Sensor Web system could be deployed and
reliably function under harsh, unforgiving conditions.
Kennedy Space Center
We fielded an Aquatic Sensor Web at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in
Florida. The coastal lagoons around the Space Shuttle launch pads
were ideal environments to explore with Sensor Webs.
We fielded a Sensor Web at the Lancaster Farms in Suffolk, Virginia. At the time of deployment,
this was the first Sensor Web to be placed in an unprotected, outdoor environment. The Sensor
Web ran for 19 months before being decommissioned, taking samples every 5 minutes, 24 hours a
day, seven days a week.
Cal Poly Pomona, College of Agriculture
We have fielded a Sensor Web at Cal Poly Pomona. This Southern California
farm represents yet another environment for the Sensor Web technology.
