What is EUMETCast Americas?


EUMETCast Americas is the component of GEONETCast, a near real time, global network of satellite-based data dissemination systems designed to distribute space-based, air-borne and in situ data, metadata and products to diverse communities.


This user-driven, user-friendly and low-cost information dissemination service aims to provide global information as a basis for sound decision-making in a number of critical areas, including public health, energy, agriculture, weather, water, climate, natural disasters and eco-systems. Accessing and sharing such a range of vital data will yield societal benefits through improved human health and well-being, environment management and economic growth.


EUMETCast receiving technology is based on using widespread and off-the-shelf components allowing for widespread adoption of the service at low cost. An entire receiving station can be purchased and installed for $2,000–3,000.


EUMETCast is led by EUMETSAT in Europe (EUMETCAST).
