Background

The installation of Cordoba Ground Station started in September 1996. Its official functioning began in March 1997, with the reception of satellite data from Landsat 5, ERS 1/2, and SPOT 1/2.

Until December 1997, the Ground Station worked thanks to an Agreement with the German Space Agency (DLR). As part of it, DLR provided a Band X antenna of 4 m diameter, so as to complete the Tandem Mission in South America with satellites ERS 1 and ERS 2.

In December 1997, regular operation of the Station continues by adding a 7.3 m antenna from DATRON. From 1999, a new 13 m DATRON antenna performs the regular operation.
