DSRS is a satellite ground station facility with over 40 years’ experience of providing data acquisition, processing, archiving and dissemination capabilities. It is one of the main ground stations in the UK receiving data from EO satellites but can be made available to third parties for other requirements.
DSRS operates a number of tracking antennas to receive from polar orbiting satellites, with each antenna capable of receiving either L-band or X-band frequency downlinks. Two fixed position antenna systems are used to receive from geostationary satellites. Processing and storage facilities are available for product generation from and archiving of received data.
