Maintenance updates to HydroDAS software and firmware:

  • ISRO HydroDAS Console version 1.12: Improves handling of post-processing in directories containing many files.

July 22, 2005

  • Maintenance updates to HydroDAS software and firmware:
    • HydroDAS firmware version 3.23:  This update increases error-checking and improves response to errors that could arise from defects in the flash memory card.  (These changes are precautionary and were tested with a special flash card that is known to have errors.  No such errors were ever observed during extensive testing of the delivered units).  Update also eliminates wavelength band definitions from output data packets if no spectra are collected (due to excessive tilt, or inadequate light levels).
    • ISRO HydroDAS Console version 1.11: fixes a minor bug that would cause the connection dialog box to remain open after a connection is completed.
  • On this web site, fixed a broken link to DASHost software
