The automatic weather station is a completely autonomous complex for measuring environmental parameters that requires minimal routine maintenance. Constant measurement of parameters combined with satellite information allows accurate forecasting of weather conditions and prediction of critical events such as hurricanes, dust storms, earthquakes, etc.
A network of such weather posts located in the area around the colony allows accurately predict the weather. This is very important information that is used to prepare for natural disasters and minimize damage to the buildings and equipment of the colony. Also, weather forecasts are very important for drone flights.
