Information about the Satellite Oceanography Data Laboratory

 

The core of the laboratory are L-Band and X-Band ground stations and a cluster of Linux workstations hosting a comprehensive suite of digital image processing and GIS software and peripherals. The Ground Station is capable of tracking and receiving High Resolution Picture Transmissions (HRPT) from the NOAA satellite constellation,  MODIS telemetry from Aqua and Terra and OCM telemetry from IRS-P4. The resulting data volume is approximately 10 GByte per day.

The Lab is part of  The University of Maine Center of Excellence in Remote Sensing Applications.  A cross-disciplinary initiative funded by the University of Maine and NASA's MISSION to PLANET EARTH
