Five satellite based monitoring systems installed in different parts of the country have been officially handed over to the Fiji government by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

The project cost $1.5million and was funded by JICA, was officially handed over to the Ministry of Lands and Mineral Resources this afternoon.

The new system is the result of the upgrading of the National Seismograph Network of Fiji from VHF radio telemetry to a new VSAT system by modification of the Ku-band system to a C-band parabolic antenna.

The satellite based monitoring systems are installed in Tailevu, Suva, Kadavu, Yasawa, Taveuni and Labasa.

An estimated cost of FJD$3.3million was spent on the implementation of this projects activities and installation of the equipments from November 2007 until October 2011.
