New Satellite Receiving Station Operational in Inuvik

Dec 14, 2017

Made-in-Canada technology takes environmental monitoring to the next level

Today in Inuvik NWT, St. John’s-based remote sensing  innovator C-CORE completed installation and commissioning of a satellite ground station for downlinking data from a new generation of Earth observation (EO) satellites. Designed and built at C‑CORE’s facilities in St. John’s NL, the novel ground station is optimized for use with today’s emerging generation of breadbox-sized nanosats and cubesats. Its innovative self-leveling platform ensures stability during seasonal frost heave, making it ideal for Arctic deployment.
