16 Feb 2006

The Japan Meteorological Agency acquired Lexical MTSAT/HRIT Ground Station Reception System in late 2005. Lexical's HRIT system is supplied to JMA via NHE( NIPPPON HAKUYO electronics ltd ) and was installed and commissioned in Kiyose City, Tokyo.

The Multi-functional Transport Satellite (MTSAT) series fulfill two functions: a meteorological function by the Japan Meteorological Agency and an aviation control function by the Civil Aviation Bureau of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport. The MTSAT series succeed the Geostationary Meteorological Satellite (GMS) series as the next generation satellite series covering the East Asia and the Western Pacific regions.

The most valuable feature of geostationary meteorological satellites is that they can globally observe atmospheric phenomena uniformly, including overlying areas in the sea, desert, and mountain regions where weather observation is difficult.

The World Weather Watch Programme, as an important part of the World Meteorological Organization's is supported by multiple geostationary and polar-orbiting meteorological satellites that comprise a space-based part of an observation network for severe weather, typhoons, hurricanes, or cyclones around the earth.

Lexical MTSAT System in action

To improve meteorological services in a wide field of activity, such as weather forecast, natural disaster countermeasures, and securing safe transportation, MTSAT series replaced the GMS series that have been in operation since 1977, and occupy the role in the GMS series, covering East Asia and the Western Pacific region from 140 degrees East above the equator.

Lexical Satellite Ground Station Systems are well accepted by the world’s leading meteorological offices.
