Applications and Projects
Satellites have only limited capabilities to store recorded data on-board. In general, they have to be in direct contact with a ground station to download their data in real-time. DFD has built up a multimission payload ground segment which includes receiving facilities in Neustrelitz, Oberpfaffenhofen and the Antarctic, as well as an international network of mobile stations. In many cases, data reception is performed in cooperation with science partners on behalf of commercial customers.
