An image from the Aist-2D satellite shows the city-port of Perth, Australia.

A high-resolution image of Perth, Australia, sent by Russian satellite Aist-2D was received by the LoReTT laboratory on June 15, 2018, the first time such a detailed image (two-meter spatial resolution) was sent via an antenna that doesn’t have a traditional rotational device. Aist-2D uses a simplified fixed-antenna dish, making it more mobile, universal and cheaper than analogs. Previously, low-resolution data were successfully received from similar Terra and Aqua satellites.

LoReTT can automatically receive images from satellites within a radius of up to 200 kilometers from the installation site, including optical sensors such as Terra, Aqua, Suomi NPP, JPSS (Direct Broadcast mode), FengYun, EROS B, Aist-2D, and Canopus-V as well as radar sensors such as RADARSAT-2, COSMO-SkyMed, TerraSAR-X and many others.

Detailed information about the LoReTT parameters and capabilities are available at http://eng.lorett.org/services.
