VLab has been organising a series of online events about the direct readout capabilities of polar orbiting systems. These online sessions are presented by the satellite operators that operate polar orbiting systems with a direct readout capability. Dates of events and instructions for registration are posted in the VLab Calendar of Events as they are booked.

EUMETSAT started this series of events by presenting two sessions about the EPS/Metop. Please find the links to resources available from those sessions in the table below.
