Upgrade to Remote Sensing Ground Station

Vexcel has completed of a multi-mission upgrade to the recently commissioned Apex remote sensing ground station in Santiago (Chile). The project is part of Lockheed Martin Aeronautic's Industrial Cooperation Program for the F-16 Peace Puma Program. In May 2008, Vexcel provided a complete, integrated, automated, Apex ground station to the Chilean Air Force's AeroPhotogrammetric Service (Fuerza Aerea de Chile Servicio Aerofotogrametrico | FACh SAF) initially configured for reception and processing of NASA's MODIS electro-optical sensor on the Terra and Aqua satellites.     Since then, the ground station has been operational 24x7x365 receiving, processing, cataloging, and disseminating MODIS image products....

Joint China-Brazil Remote Sensing Satellites

The CBERS Programme, a co-operative Chinese-Brazilian Earth Resources Satellites Programme with versatile cameras, has realised a vast success of the Brazilian data distribution policy that is leveraging research and business in Earth observation. It is expected that in 2005 new ground stations around the world will be receiving CBERS images. Since the launch of the first US Landsat-1, formerly called ERTS (Earth Resources Technology Satellite), back in 1972, the world never stopped to improve on remote sensing technologies and broaden the applications. Landsat-1 opened to the world new opportunities for observing the Earth from a completely new point of view.... (read more)
