Abstract :

This presentation introduces major Chinese satellites program, including satellite classification, specification, time-line and ground station system. On second part, it introduces a virtual ground station technology. It presents some disadvantages of the current remote sensing data distribution mode and proposes a new way to access remote sensing satellite image. The new way, by making use of strong capacity nowadays, transfer, calculate, and compress the remote sensing data immediately after data reception from a satellite, and provide the image in near real-time to users. The major functions include full resolution, overlaid with vector data such as longitude/latitude and administrative name, image zooming/panning, satellite/sensor information, data reception schedule, etc. Data can be searched by key words to find a path or location. The technical system is composed of four parts, which are respectively data comprehensive processing component, data management component, product distribution component and data display component. Virtual ground station users can access satellite image directly and timely. We expect that this kind of system is able to promote some new remote sensing applications fields, such as disaster monitoring, monitoring of progress for a big construction project, monitoring of natural heritage site, or monitoring of current events from the news.
