Description

A simply clever and cost-effective solution

The GS-E belongs to a new generation of groundstations, which are fully controlled via our meteorological evaluation software GRAWMET. Complex and expensive hardware circuits and susceptibility to error due to hardware wear are now a thing of the past. All signal processing is performed via an integrated “Software Defined Radio” application (SDR) which also optimises the reception. All receiver settings can be configured via software. This makes the GS-E a cost-effective alternative to groundstations which use digital signal processors for signal processing. This means that it is flexible to changes in signal transmission and can be adapted to new transmission standards. The receiver bandwidth of 400 to 406 MHz ensures sufficient scope and interference-free reception.
