Moscow, Russia, 22 June 2007: ScanEx R&D Center has completed the testing of new universal ground station on the basis of Alice-SC complex for the meteodata reception from different satellites.

Unlike previously manufactured stations that received space images only from the American NOAA meteorological satellites, the new universal station provides for additional data reception of different formats from the European and Chinese spacecrafts. The universal reception unit of the new station is capable of receiving HRPT images from NOAA (USA) satellites, AHRPT data from METOP-A satellite (Eumetsat European meteorological organization) and CHRPT data from FengYun-1D satellite (China).

ScanEx Center delivers first 12 copies of the universal station to the RosHydroMet regional centers under the contract with World Bank that in cooperation with the Russian government funds the project “Modernization and Technical Upgrade of RosHydroMet Agencies”.
