FIELD RESEARCH CENTER
WPS acquired rights to habitat in South Africa to use as a wildlife research and technology testing center. There is a breeding herd of white rhinos on the property plus a wide variety of other wildlife. The center has living accommodations for researchers, a dry lab, and an administrative and communications center.
The facility runs on solar power with appropriate back-up power. The site is linked internally by a high speed communications network designed by WPS and protected by wpsWatch, a centralized monitoring system which utilizes remotely deployed field cameras to transmit images of wildlife and potential human threats.
The center is used by WPS personnel to develop and test software protection systems and network communication architectures. It is also available to researchers who wish to study African wildlife.
