Ground Station

Satellite Ground Station (Hangzhou), established in 1998, is one of the four ground stations of satellite marine operational application. It can receive the data from more than 10 polar orbital and stationary satellites, including HY-1B, HY-2A, TERRA, AQUA, NOAA-15, NOAA-16, NOAA-18, NOAA-19, FY-2, MTSAT, among others, providing satellite data products for 973 Program, 863 Program, public S&T research fund project, National Key Technology Research and Development Program, National Natural Science Foundation, etc. These satellite data are open to the public, and the list of satellite data received by the ground station is available at SOED website, being updated every two weeks. On Oct. 18, 2011, Satellite Ground Station successfully received the first orbital satellite data of HY-2A; and it added delayed-mode data receiving system in 2012, which improved the data-receiving capability of the Ground Station. The staff of the Ground Station not only maintains the facilities to ensure that the Ground Station conducts non-interrupted service, but also explores new techniques to enhance the Ground Station’s data receiving and processing capabilities of newly-launched satellites.
