The Neustrelitz ground station (ca. 100 km north of Berlin) has been a part of DFD since 1992. Before German unification it was an important receiving station in the Eastern Europe INTERKOSMOS program.
Its activities include the reception of remote sensing data and a variety of science data, full TT&C services in cooperation with the German Space Operation Center GSOC, and the development of ground station components and interface assemblies.
A total of three antenna systems are available for operation in a multimission scenario (technical details are in the table below). One antenna is equipped for S-band transmission, with a second to follow.
The Neustrelitz station is ideally located for achieving maximal coverage of Europe.
