Advanced Meteorological Systems and Solutions

Based on our long experience in developing professional products and components for Earth observation systems, we have started the 2met!® product line being a synonym for the “Second Generation” of meteorological products, systems and solutions.
The 2met!® portfolio includes satellite receiving hardware components as well as value-adding SW applications within the Earth Observation and Remote Sensing areas.

2met!® is a multi-mission concept for real-time data acquisition, processing, visualisation and distribution of meteorological satellite data. It is a commercial off-the-shelf solution, based on standard hardware and software. 2met!® supports a variety of remote sensing satellites such as METEOSAT, MSG, GOES, NOAA, METOP, FengYun, TERRA/AQUA, Suomi NPP and upcoming JPSS as well as telemetry standards in line with the CCSDS recommendation.

In addition, 2met!® also facilitates the GEONETCast missions like EUMETCast and HimawariCast, operating in Ku-band and C-band by means of commercial satellites. Our turnkey solutions are ready for DVB-S and DVB-S2 missions.
