Data reception in the Antarctic

The nine-me­tre an­ten­na of DLR's GARS O'Hig­gins Antarc­tic Sta­tion of DLR re­ceives a vast amount of satel­lite da­ta. In ad­di­tion to re­ceiv­ing da­ta, com­mands are trans­mit­ted to satel­lites and, in some cas­es, pro­cess­ing of the da­ta al­so takes place on site.

The nine-metre antenna of DLR's GARS O'Higgins Antarctic Station of DLR receives a vast amount of satellite data. In addition to receiving data, commands are transmitted to satellites and, in some cases, processing of the data also takes place on site.
