EUMETSAT awards Ground Segment System Test Engineering support service contract to MOLTEK as part of EPS Commissioning and Routine Operations phases.
MOLTEK Group announce that EUMETSAT (the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites), has awarded a support contract for Ground Segment System Test Engineering as part of EPS ommissioning and Routine Operations phases.
The main area for support is in the evolution of the EPS Ground Segment working with the System Engineering team in the Maintenance Engineering Division of the EUMETSAT Operations Department.
EUMETSAT is mandated to establish, maintain and exploit Europe’s system of meteorological satellites providing operational Earth observations for a current total of 19 Member and 11 Cooperating States.
Since its foundation in 1986 EUMETSAT has been contributing a wealth of reliable and high quality satellite data which are used for the purposes of meteorological forecasting (especially ‘Nowcasting’ i.e. very short term forecasting) and which are also used in numerical weather prediction models.
