Libreville station is located in N’Koltang, Gabon, 40 km from Libreville airport. It is installed on a site that is part of an ESA network of downlink telemetry stations, used in particular to monitor the Ariane, Vega and Soyuz launchers.
Currently this station is configured to receive data from the NOAA 19 weather satellite. The reconstructed images make it possible to check the quality of the site and to identify possible degradations on the reception of the signals.
