Within the tasks devoted to operational oceanography, Coastal Ocean Observatory at Institut de Ciències del Mar (CSIC) has acquired an European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) Broadcast System for Environmental Data (EUMETCast reception system) to replace a satellite direct broadcast system that receives data via High Resolution Picture Transmission (HRPT). EUMETCast system can receive data based on standard Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) technology using commercial telecommunication geostationary satellites with regular off-the-shelf satellite TV equipment and a PC and has great advantages over a satellite direct broadcast system. A pilot project has started to manage and integrate satellite data acquired through EUMETSAT’s Advanced Retransmission Service (EARS)-AVHRR data stream with Satellite Image Database INterface (SAIDIN), a tool developed 4 years ago to access, visualize and distribute satellite data.
