The Pierre Auger Cosmic Ray Observatory employs a large array of Surface Detector (SD) stations to detect the secondary particle showers generated by Ultra High Energy Cosmic Rays. The operational Auger South site uses a tower-based wireless network for communication between SD stations and the observatory campus. Plans for a larger Auger North array call for a similar system. However, a variety of factors render direct station-to-tower routing infeasible in Auger North. Thus, we have adopted a… CONTINUE READING
