  • Historically, SCADA systems have required the custom engineering and construction of a private radio or phone line network for telemetry to remote sites. It was the only way to get the job done. It was expensive and time consuming; and rightfully so. With the advent of digital third generation (3 G) national cellular networks, came another method to provide SCADA system with telemetry to remote sites. Public wireless data networks are reliable, secure, provide unparalleled coverage and in most cases, are substantially less expensive to own and operate over a 10-year life than any other telem-etry option. Additionally, they provide their users with free technology upgrades, zero infrastructure maintenance and the flexibility of competitive vendors. The Old Way Private radio or dedicated phone line based telemetry/SCADA systems Custom engineering and construction: radio path studies, custom design, engineering and construction costs - Expensive and time consuming: Full function, private radio (spread spectrum or licensed) cost from $4,000 to $12,000 installed. The average is approximately $7,000. Studies show that between maintenance agreements, repeater fees and other radio network related expenses, private radio networks cost from $50 to $125 per year, per site to maintain. The average appears to be about $75 per year, per site. Therefore, an average private radio SCADA network costs $7,750 over a 10-year life span assuming no major modifications from the original installation. - Ongoing maintenance and upgrade costs - Various reliability levels Autodialers - Limited features; just alarms - Phone lines can be expensive - Only notification by phone - Lightening and other reliability issues The New Way: The MISSION Solution Public wireless network based, prepackaged monitoring &amp; SCADA systems New 3G networks: reliable &amp; secure - 128-bit encryption: DOD “Secret” level 3 G Wireless Services – These technologies all utilize the 128 bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). This is a step above the Defense Encryption Standard (DES). AES is accepted by the Department of Defense for “Secret” communications and meets, or exceeds, the expected communications standards to be recommended by the Office of Homeland Security and the American Water Works Association (AWWA) for telemetry wireless links in the water industry. Existing “licensed” and “spread spectrum” radio systems do not use AES or DES. Though proprietary, most have no encryption at all. Control Channel Technologies – While not encrypted, these technologies are harder to “spoof” than phone dialer and basic private radio systems. They should not be used for medium, to high risk control applications. Low equipment costs: no engineering - Low installation costs: quick and easy - Maintenance &amp; software upgrades included Service guarantees &amp; upgrade credits (Upgrade policy of 100% credit on existing Mission gear if upgraded in the first year, 80% during the second year, etc.) - Mix deployment of M100 &amp; M800’s, and/or roll them out over time - No FCC license or unlicensed spectrum overlap worries

  • All MISSION systems have 5 parts. The MISSION RTU’s typically have 11 digital inputs; 8 external dry contact inputs and 3 built-in digital alarm circuits (AC failure, low battery and input wiring fault…all input wiring monitored with instant alarm if shorted or disconnected), two 4-20mA or 1-5VDC analog inputs, 2 optional pulse counter inputs, one electronic key reader input and 3 dry contact outputs. When the MISSION RTU detects an alarm condition, electronic key read or scheduled data message, a message packet is transmitted to any of many nearby cellular towers; it’s like having multiple phone lines for each RTU. To increase reliability, for the M-80 thru M-300, each message is sent via the digital cellular control channel 5 times in 1/5 th of a second. The local cell tower then compares all five messages. If three or more match, the message is sent on to MISSION Control and a “successful message” acknowledgement is sent back to the RTU…very accurate and reliable. These systems actually never makes a ”voice” call. The M-800 communicates through the data protocol of the Nextel system and is on all the time. In about 2 seconds (less for Nextel), the data is delivered to the MISSION computer data center in Atlanta, MISSION Control. As fast as you can dial the last digit in a long distance number and hear it “ring” at the other end is as fast as MISSION gets the M-100 message. MISSION has the data before many other systems have even connected. According to customer instructions, MISSION computers decode the data message, determine what type of alarm or data it is, and who is to be notified and how. MISSION can now phone, fax, page or e-mail any number of different people; call multiple people simultaneously too . It can also simultaneously notify you through the Internet; direct to your control room computer running your existing SCADA software (meshed into the existing SCADA software though M-HMI or not through our animated alarm wizard, Merlin) . MISSION notification messages must be positively acknowledged, otherwise further attempts will be made. If no one “responds” within the customer preset time, MISSION moves down the customers “call list” until someone responds to and acknowledges the message. MISSION accommodates nearly any combination or sequence of notification plans. On duty status / notification lists can change automatically with the day or time of day; for example having one callout list for the day and another for nights and weekends. Mission will even program them depending on the type of alarm (e.g. regular alarms go to the regular callout list while weekly backup generator tests go to another!) MISSION technical support personnel can do this for you, or you can get on the password-protected web site that MISSION provides you and change your alarm notification schedules yourself. All of the notification call attempts, their results and personnel responses are automatically logged at your web site. You can also view weekly management summary reports (plus we send them to you by e-mail or fax). You can make updates and also run reports on numerous categories of data from pump run times to personnel site access logs.
