The project team of the EnMAP ground segment (GS) addressed a variety of technical topics during their presentations at DLR in Oberpfaffenhofen, including:
As a result of this major assessment which bridges the design and production stages of a project, the design is validated, meets its requirements, and is backed up with solid analysis and documents based on the standards of ECSS (European Cooperation for Space Standardization). Having received the green light on the design during EnMAP GS-CDR the project team is moving out on full production of the ground segment. The CDR of the space segment will take place in May 2011.

The Ground Segment
The Earth Observation Center (EOC) and the Space Operations and Astronaut Training (RB) are responsible for establishing and operating the EnMAP GS. The satellite and instrument will be controlled and commanded by the German Space Operations Center (GSOC) with its multi-mission control center in Oberpfaffenhofen and its main S-band telemetry- and telecommand ground station in Weilheim. Data reception, data processing, and long-term data archiving, as well as providing a web-interface to the EnMAP user community, will be operated by the German Remote Sensing Data Center (DFD) with its multi-mission infrastructures located in Oberpfaffenhofen and Neustrelitz, where also the main X-band payload data ground station is located. The development of the fully automatic processors capable of generating calibrated EnMAP image products at several processing levels including geometric and atmospheric corrections is carried out by the Remote Sensing Technology Institute (IMF) supporting the mission with its expertise and dedicated elements located in Oberpfaffenhofen and Berlin-Adlershof.
