Dartcom is pleased to announce the availability of its new UHRIT System to provide reception of UHRIT data from the GEO-KOMPSAT-2A (GK-2A) satellite.
GK-2A is operated by the Korean Meteorological Administration (KMA) and National Meteorological Space Center (NMSC). It was launched in 2019 to replace the COMS-1 satellite.
The GK-2A UHRIT service uses a 31Mbps DVB-S2 downlink to allow high-resolution data (up to 500m) with a short repeat cycle (10 minutes). 16 spectral bands are available from the AMI sensor, as well as a number of level 2 products.
