Latest News List AdZU ALeRTO nabs spot at the National Science and Technology Week-Mindanao Exhibit

AdZU Automated Water level and Rain Monitoring Using Near Real-Time Observation (ALeRTO) Project took spot as one of the exhibitors during the Mindanao-wide Celebration of the National Science and Technology Week at SMX Convention, Lanang, Davao City last July 6-8, 2018.


AdZU ALeRTO is a project that aims to develop an early warning system which would provide near real-time status of the rain and water levels of 10 River basins (pilot sites) through SMS and Websites, giving local authorities ample time for decision-making and preventing adverse effects of flooding.

With the theme: “Science for the People of Mindanao: Innovation for Collective Prosperity,” the exhibit featured various science and technology programs implemented in the country including the 2 Philippine microsatellites launched to the International Space Station (ISS) Diwata-1 and 2 or the PHL Microsat-1 and 2;  AdZU GeoSAFER-ZAMBASULTA’s Umbrella Program GeoSAFER Mindanao; and many others.

DOST Secretary Fortunato dela Peña, along with other Regional DOST Directors were in attendance to welcome the participants and exhibitors. President Rodrigo Duterte also graced the event as the keynote Speaker. Prior to his talk, the President went around the DRRM Exhibit Area giving Mr Mario Rodriguez, Project Leader of AdZU ALeRTO an opportunity to discuss to the President the objectives of the project and how it will aid in disaster preparedness of Local Government Units in Zamboanga Peninsula. Along with President Duterte, present in the discussion are DOST Sec Fortunato dela Peña, DOST Undersecretary for DRRM Dr Renato Solidum, and DOST Region XI Director Anthony Sales.


The 3-day exhibit also paved the way for AdZU ALeRTO to meet key people from the Mindanao Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) Regional Services Division, DOST- Advanced Science and Technology Institute (DOST-ASTI), DOST-Science and Technology Information Institute (DOST-STII), and other representatives of Regional and National DOST agencies.

Because of the relevance of the project and the positive response it received during the Mindanao Celebration, it was again invited to be one of the exhibitors for the National Science and Technology Week 2018 Celebration in World Trade Center, Pasay City last  July 17-21, 2018. Julemer Ann G Aying, AdZU GeoSAFER-ZAMBASULTA
