UniScan™ ground receiving station is a hardware and software system designed to receive and process data from low-orbit Earth observation satellites.
The UniScan™ station enables to receive real-time data within a radius of up to 2,500 km from Russian (Meteor-M, Kanopus V, Resurs-P), as well as foreign satellites (Terra, Aqua, Suomi NPP, FengYun-3, SPOT 6/7, EROS B, Landsat-8, Sentinel-1A, KOMPSAT-3, RADARSAT-2, TerraSAR-X, COSMO-SkyMed, and many others).
The UniScan™ basic configuration is designed to receive data transmitted in X-band frequency. It includes an antenna system with a reflector (from 1.6 to 3.7 m in diameter), receivers with up to 750 Mbit/s data rate, as well as a comprehensive software package for station operation, data pre-processing and cataloging. Optionally, the station can be equipped with elements for receiving RF signals in L- and S-bands.
A relatively inexpensive and space-saving UniScan™ station with a 1.6 m antenna that has X- and
L-band receivers enables to receive data from all operating meteorological satellites (Aqua, Terra, NOAA-18/19, NOAA-20, Metop-A/B, FY-3A/B/C).
State-of-the-art technologies are implemented in stations’ key components. The software makes it possible to receive and process data in a fully automated mode.
