5. The above telemetry data also needs to be transmitted to a laptop computer via a wireless link with a maximum required transmission range of 1km (0.6 mile). Can the Overo AirSTORM COM be used to both transmit the data and a second Overo AirSTORM COM be used to receive the data at the other end of the link and input this data via a USB port into the laptop computer?

You might look at the DigiKey ZigBee PRO modules.  Easy to integrate, and LOS
distances up to 10km at reasonably low power.  I've used them w/Overo's and
laptops before.

Cheers!
