Sutron Corporation pioneered the concept of real-time processing of stream gage data acquired through satellite data collection systems. Sutron developed a complete suite of software that collects gage height data, applies shifts, offsets, and rating table lookups in real time, and displays discharge minutes after the stage is collected.

Sutron developed a complete set of post-processing software to compute mean daily gage heights and discharges the day after the data was collected. The software would also produce, in real time, the USGS annual report format for stations. Sutron developed a complete monitoring system for the State Engineer’s office of Colorado to monitor water usage and water rights in real time. This system won a National Engineering Achievement Award from the Society of Professional Engineers.
