Local staff representatives of both DFD and BKG took the opportunity to present the role of the receiving station and the activities towards long-term observation of the Antarctica with ERS-1 and ERS-2, and the recent support of the TerraSAR-X background mission. Prince Albert II was escorted by the commander of the adjacent Chilean Station and by Brigadier Salgado from the Chilean Air Force, who is in charge of the implementation of the Chilean Earth-Observation (SSOT) programme.
