This adaptive research project concerned the development of demonstration prototype capabilities to enable direct access to high resolution remote sensing satellite data, and use of this technology for improving understanding and development of natural resources. The approach relied on detecting and tracking a unique beacon signal broadcast by the satellite of interest and then acquiring the associated 8 Ghz data streem There are potential future research and implementation pathways in a number of countries, particularly Indonesia.
