The Center is devoted to receiving, archiving and processing remote-sensing the data from satellites both at home and abroad, and developing the technologies for upgrading the service and operation capacities of the ground systems.
Its major tasks include: Operational management of the satellite ground systems; the data reception and transmission, via the Internet, of the three satellite ground stations located in Miyun, Kashi and Sanya, and the pre-processing of the satellite data; the maintenance, technical renewal and structural upgrade of the ground systems; development of a nationwide network of satellite ground stations; and running graduate programs.
There are six divisions under the Center:
1.The Division for Operational Management of Satellite Ground Systems
2.Ground System Engineering Division
3.Satellite Data Pre-processing Division
4.The Miyun Ground Station
5.The Kashi Ground Station
6.The Sanya Ground Station
