German Remote Sensing Data Center (DFD)
National Ground Segment
The National Ground Segment Neustrelitz - a department of DLR's German Remote Sensing Data Center - can look back on a long-time history of research. It emerged 1992 from the Satellite Ground Station of the Institute for Cosmos Research of the German Academy of Sciences of the GDR, which has been built and operated at this location since 1968. Most of employees of DLR facility work in the research and development domain. Existing fields of activity have been continually developed throughout the almost 40 years of the ground segments existence. The ranges of tasks include the following:
Development of hardware-components and software-tools for receipt, processing and archiving of satellite data
Due to the governing of the complete chain starting with data acquisition, over data processing, to the point of data delivery, the user can quickly access system-adjusted, high-quality, homogenized data sets with high information content and facile access procedures. The ground segment is currently involved in more than 10 national und international missions, amongst others as receiving antennae of ESA Earthnet for European remote sensing missions. The ground segment therefore cooperates closely with a multitude of scientific and commercial partners and authorities.
Development of station's software for monitor und control-tasks
