Satellite Receiving Station

The Satellite Receiving Station (SRS) located on the roof top of the NAC building at the City College of New York. The installation consists of two separate antennas and acquisition systems. Data types that can be received and processed are from X-band transmitting polar orbiting satellites, Terra and Aqua, both equipped with MODIS instruments, and L-band data from the geostationary (GEOS-12) satellite. Using a 2.4m robot-controlled positioning antenna enclosed in a weatherproof dome, X-band data is acquired, processed and archived in the NAC building. Concurrently, GOES data is also acquired, processed and archived using a nearby stationary 3.7m antenna.
