Data Collection Systems (DCS)

Data Collection Systems (DCS) are provided by several geostationary meteorological satellite operators, giving almost total coverage around the world, except the polar regions. The DCS is particularly useful for the collection of data from remote and inhospitable locations where it may provide the only possibility for data relay.
