eOsphere ground receiving stations throughout the world
eOsphere polar-orbiting satellite receiving stations are designed for users who want to receive and process MODIS data from NASA’s Earth Observing System (EOS) Terra and Aqua, VIIRS, ATMS, CrIS and OMPS data from Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) Suomi-NPP and NOAA 20, AVHRR and ATOVS data from NOAA’s Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellites (POES) and EUMETSAT Polar System (MetOp) satellites.
eOsphere DataCast satellite receiving stations are designed for users who want to receive EUMETCast, HimawariCast, CMACast & GEONetCast Digital Video Broadcast (DVB) transmissions to ingest and process data from geostationary weather satellites such as SEVIRI and HRV from Meteosat Second Generation (MSG), S-VISSR data from Feng Yun 2, AHI from Himawari and ABI from GOES.
eOsphere data acquisition and processing systems are designed for users who have existing antennas and satellite receivers and want to add acquisition and processing of any polar-orbiting of geostationary satellite data. eOsphere has supplied data acquisition and processing systems to interface to a wide range of existing antenna and satellite receivers, providing technology refresh hardware and software to restore existing systems to an operation state or adding satellite acquisition and processing to existing operational systems.
Please see the Key Technical Features section below for further details.
Since 2007 eOsphere satellite reception, acquisition and processing systems have been installed in many countries worldwide (including China, Cuba, Ecuador, Greece, India, Indonesia, Kuwait, Malaysia, Vietnam and the UK) to provide operational government agencies and research organisations with near real-time data for a wide range of applications including weather now- and fore-casting, aerosols and air quality, pasture, ocean colour and other environmental monitoring, detection and monitoring of natural and man-made disasters such as flooding, deforestation, oil spills, volcanic eruptions ash, forest and wildfires, burn scar and smoke and extreme weather events using medium- and low-resolution visible, near, short wave and thermal infrared satellite image data.
National Observatory of Athens (NOA), Athens, Greece
The eOsphere Forest and Wildfire Monitoring system was supplied to the National Observatory of Athens (NOA), Athens, Greece, as part of the EU Project BEYOND: Building a Centre of Excellence for Earth Observation Based Monitoring of Natural Disasters, in 2014. The system is now used as part of the European Forest Fire Information System (EFFIS), a component of the Copernicus Emergency Management Service Risk and Recovery Mapping, routinely delivering forest fire products covering Central and Eastern Europe, the Mediterranean, Middle East and North Africa to the EFFIS system.
Vietnam National University (VNU-UET-FIMO), Hanoi, Vietnam
The eOsphere Forest and Wild Fire Monitoring system was supplied to the Centre for Multidisciplinary Integrated Technologies for Field Monitoring (FIMO) at the University of Engineering and Technology (UET), Vietnam National University (VNU), Hanoi, Vietnam, in 2014. FIMO is a university teaching and research department specialising in field monitoring techniques, including remote sensing, with particular emphasis on forest fire and air pollution monitoring, as part of the national disaster monitoring system.
Institute of Meteorology (INSMET), Havana, Cuba
The eOsphere polar orbiting satellite reception system was supplied to the Instituto de Meteorología de Cuba (INSMET), Havana, Cuba, in 2017. INSMET is the national meteorological service for Cuba specialising in meteorological now- and fore-casting, numerical weather prediction and agrometeorology. INSMET has a long history of hurricane tracking in the Caribbean and captured many useful images of hurricanes Irma and Maria which passed closed by shortly after installation.
Regional Organisation for Protection of Marine Environment (ROPME), Kuwait
The eOsphere Marine Environment Monitoring system was supplied to the Regional Organisation for Protection of Marine Environment (ROPME) in 2018. ROPME is a multi-national organisation established to monitor the marine environment in the Arabian Gulf and around the Arabian Peninsular. The system is being used to monitor all aspects of water quality, particularly the detection and tracking of oil slicks, using MODIS and VIIRS visible channel reflectances, algal blooms and ocean fronts, with products published to the community via ROPME’s web-site, research and periodical reports.
University of Terengganu, Institute of Oceanography, Malaysia (UMT-INOS)
The eOsphere Marine Environment Monitoring system was supplied to the University of Terengganu, Institute of Oceanography (UMT-INOS), Malaysia, in 2012. UMT-INOS is teaching and research university specialising in monitoring of the marine environment and undertakes research of national importance in marine biodiversity, endangered species and marine environmental governance in Malaysian waters.
National Agency for Meteorology and the Environment Monitoring (NAMEM), Mongolia
The eOsphere polar orbiting satellite reception system was supplied to the National Agency for Meteorology and the Environment Monitoring (NAMEM) of Mongolia in 2007, upgraded for reception of new polar orbiting satellites in 2012 and technology refreshed in 2019 as part of the SIBELIUs project. NAMEM is the national meteorological service for Mongolia specialising in meteorological now- and fore-casting, numerical weather prediction and agrometeorology and includes the Information and Research Institute of Meteorology, Hydrology and Environment (IRIMHE) specialising in research for all applications of EO data in Mongolia.
Shanghai Ocean University (SHOU)
The eOsphere Marine Environment Monitoring system was supplied to the Shanghai Ocean University SHOU) in 2007, upgraded for reception of new polar orbiting and geostationary satellites in 2013 and 2015 and technology refreshed in 2018. SHOU is teaching and research university specialising in monitoring of the marine environment, fisheries and aquaculture. The system is used as a teaching tool for ocean remote sensing and undertakes research into the marine environment of the Chinese sea areas.
