Suomi NPP Satellite Starts Real-time High Data Rate Transmission27/02/2012
|Broadband data transmission from the imaging equipment of the new Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP) satellite started successfully on 23rd February 2012. Survey results were delivered in real time on High Rate Data (HRD) radio-link. Free access can be obtained to data transmitted via HRD radio-link at 15Mbps. All the user needs is to have an X-band receiving ground station available. For the most part, the UniScan stations developed by ScanEx RDC do not require any hardware updates to start receiving data from Suomi NPP; only the software that is currently being tested needs to be uploaded.|
imagery data, including the information about the satellite, tools for data reception and processing, broadcasts applying the direct broadband technique, as well as data samples and templates for correct reception, processing and analysis by the users of data, transmitted in HRD mode.
