Ground Segments for traditional Earth Observation missions, such as Landsat, MODIS, VIIRS, NOAA, Metop and Fengyun


Direct receiving stations


FarEarth for Ground Segments is a multi-mission system for the acquisition and processing of traditional EO satellite missions. It includes:

  • Multi-mission scheduling and deconfliction
  • Antenna and demodulator control
  • Observer with real-time moving window display
  • Automated image processing workflows
  • Industry standard product generation
  • Flexible data archiving, cataloguing and dissemination options

FarEarth for Ground Segments is offered as an on-premises or a fully managed cloud-based system.

The FarEarth for Ground Segment system provides a flexible architecture for the processing of data from various satellites. It hides the complexity of controlling hardware from various vendors, and allows for deconfliction across multiple missions, antennas, and demodulators. Processing is managed across distributed nodes, with automatic assignment and failover. Standard pluggable processors are available for the Landsat mission, NOAA, Metop and Fengyun satellites as well as the MODIS and VIIRS sensors. Pinkmatter can also develop customized low-level processors for other missions.
