Ground Segment

The ground segment constitutes the ground-based infrastructure necessary to support the operation of our satellites.

The EUMETSAT multimission ground network is made up of a central mission control, located at EUMETSAT headquarters; primary and backup ground stations for satellite control and data acquisition, and a distributed application ground segment for the generation of processed data and products.
