Satellite receivers and Demodulator systems

MEOS™ Multi-mission Earth Observation System - KONGSBERG Space Ground Systems professional system for satellite data acquisition, archiving, processing, analysis and distribution.

Demodulator and receiver

MEOS™ HRDFEP:  The MEOS™ Capture HRDFEP is a high performance, fully programmable data receiver, demodulator, acquisition and telemetry processing system for the most demanding professional users. 

Developed to bring all your data safely home, always. This mission statement translates into the key properties of all MEOS™ Capture products: Performance, Reliability and Flexibility.

The MEOS™ Capture HRDFEP is a Software Defined Radio (SDR) with direct sampling of the input IF signal. This solution simplifies the analog part of the receiver and reduces implementation losses compared to other sampling strategies.

The MEOS™ Capture HRDFEP receives modulated I signals and ECL / LVDS baseband signals. It outputs raw and processed data to disk, network and baseband outputs. It supports conventional satellite downlink standards as well as DVB-S2 and CCSDS SCCC.

Get all data right from the start of every satellite contact.
Make acquired data available for end users as fast as possible.


MEOS™ HRTG:   The MEOS™ Capture HRTG  is a high performance test transmitter for ground system testin and verification. It generates phase modulated and baseband data streams for testing of demodulators and other ground equipment. The MEOS™ Capture HRTG implements the same key properties as all MEOS™ Capture products: Performance, Reliability and Flexibility.

MEOS™Capture HRTG outputs PN sequences, simulated data and real satellite data. It generates modulated IF signals with various modulations, carrier frequencies and power levels, as well as ECL / LVDS baseband signals.


MEOS™ Capture (HRDFEP, HRTG) are used in many critical environments, where “every bit counts”. Current users of MEOS™ Capture includes NASA EDOS, ESA, Eumetsat and Kongsberg Satellite Services. Typical applications are remote sensing and meteorological satellite ground stations, EGSE and SCOE systems.
