Nope, has been done for decades (used to be un-secured ftp exchanges,
moved to http nowadays, ssl has been rejected by manufacturers so far).

In the monitoring station use case most of the money goes into the
instrument themselves and the coms stack is built using generic
off-the-shelf commodity tech (in extreme flash-flood warning systems the
stations are designed to be cheap enough it's ok if some of them get lost
due to the flood itself)
