eOsphere install new ground station in Indonesia, 24 January 2014

eOsphere_dominic-flach_indonesia-ground-stationeOsphere’s Dominic Flach and Chris Williams have recently returned from Balikpapan on the east coast of Borneo, Indonesia, where they installed a new X-band EOS Aqua & Terra, NPP & JPSS satellite ground station for BMKG; the Indonesian government agency for meteorology, climatology, and geophysics. The BMKG staff made the eOsphere team very welcome, which facilitated a very successful installation. The resulting satellite imagery will be used in weather forecasting and the monitoring of forest fires, flooding and other natural disasters.
