Telesto from EEC

Keep more than an eye on the weather

Telesto is a permanent, high-performance geostationary system designed for the collection and interrogation of satellite data for forecasting and research applications.

Comprehensive weather forecasting and analysis

The Telesto ground station provides all of the tools you need to receive weather and atmospheric data from meteorological satellite systems and process them into image files. The satellite systems accessible via Telesto include the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) East and West; the Japanese Meteorological Agency’s MTSAT spacecraft; the Chinese Meteorological Association’s FY-2 satellite; and the Korea Meteorological Administration’s Communication, Ocean and Meteorological Satellite (COMS).

From manufacturing and engineering to final installation and training, the Telesto ground station is a turn key system, providing all of the hardware and software required to collate and analyze meteorological data.

Data Sources:

  • GOES
  • FY-2
  • COMS


  • Complete turn key system for use by forecasters with integrated reception & processing
  • Full range of forecasting tools with Dvorak technique, topography, overlays, zooming & panning
  • Integration & display of multiple data sources including GRIB, Synops
  • Level 2 products such as SST, cloud classification
  • All common satellite formats such as HDF, NetCDF, Level 1B
  • Interfaces with EEC’s powerful Proteus satellite image processing package


  • Weather forecasting
  • Cyclone detection and tracking
  • Volcanic ash detection and tracking
