CEODE Successfully Receives Image Data from the First High-precision Three-dimensional Mapping Satellite of China

CEODE’s Miyun Ground Station successfully received the first track of satellite imaging data from the ZY3 satellite and implemented real-time recording and large capacity optical data transmission. A total of 56.6 GB of image data were successfully received in nearly ten minutes. A dual-polarized, high-bitrate technology was applied for the first time in a remote sensing satellite ground system to receive the satellite data, which indicated that China’s land observation satellite data reception technology had entered a new level of development. The successful data reception from the ZY3 satellite provided a guarantee for applications in follow-up surveying and mapping of high-resolution satellite data in China. Read More
