LoReTT – Local Real Time Tool

Laboratory Complex for Satellite Monitoring

Educational laboratory complex for satellite monitoing "LoReTT" (hereinafter referred to as the "Complex") is designed to receive, demodulate, decode, record and process digital information, transmitted from spacecrafts in low Earth orbits via X-band radio channels with the range of demodulation speeds 0.2 - 100 Msps (with option up to 350 Msps).

The Complex provides a stable signal reception from the Terra, Aqua, Suomi NPP, JPSS satellites (in Direct Broadcast (DB) mode), and also from FengYun-3A/3B/3C, EROS-B, Kanopus-V, RADARSAT-2, COSMO-SkyMed-1/…/4, TerraSAR-X and many others.

The Complex provides automatic data recoring on computer disk and receiving images from satellites in radius about 200 km from a point of Complex location.

"LoReTT" Сomplex can be introduced into educational and innovative projects in three directions:  

  • complex-constructor for engineering education;
  • complex as a basis for an interdisciplinary project laboratory, basic tool for providing access to very high spatial resolution data in real time;
  • complex as a tool for developing services and / or mobile applications. It can function for centers of collective use or through domestic and international hackathons.

X-band Ground Station for Remote Sensing of the Earth

Ground Receiving Station "Milk Thistle" (hereinafter referred to as the "Station") is designed to receive, demodulate, decode, record and process digital information, transmitted from spacecrafts in low Earth orbits via X-band radio channels with the range of demodulation speeds 0.2 - 350 Msps.

The Station provides a stable signal reception in the whole upper hemisphere (from 5 degrees of angular altitude) from the Terra, Aqua, Suomi  NPP, JPSS satellites (in Direct Broadcast (DB) mode), and also from FengYun-3A/3B/3C, Resurs-P, Kanopus V, Aist-2D, Landsat 8, Pleiades-1A, 1B, SPOT 6,7, EROS B, RADARSAT-2, COSMO-SkyMed 1-4, TerraSAR-X, video camera Iris, mounted on the board of ISS, PlanetScope, OptiSar, UrtheDaily and many others.

The Station provides automatic data recoring on computer disk and receiving images from satellites in radius up to 3,000 km from a point of Complex location, and remote control of data reception and processing.

Providing meteorological data on cloudiness through the MODIS / Terra and Aqua data service in real time

"LoReTT" LLC provides users with initial data of space imagery and information products, obtained from MODIS radiometer data (Terra and Aqua spacecrafts), using standard algorithms for coordinated areas of interest:

  • cloud mask (MOD35); 
  • data on the temperature of the upper edge of the cloud cover (MOD06CT).


"LoReT" LLC provides access to online data in 24/7 mode by an agreed login and password using the FTP protocol. Information is provided to users in HDF4 file format. The contents of the fields, their encoding and formatting within the HDF are described in the NASA documentation for respective products. "LoReTT" LLC provides users with a description of the format of the products. Approbation of the method and verification of the results were carried out jointly with the Institute of Radar Meteorology (IRAM), St. Petersburg, Russia.
