ERMEX NG: Estación de Recepción México Nueva Generación: Reception Station Mexico New Generation

  1. 1. ERMEX NG Estación de Recepción México Nueva Generación Reception Station Mexico New Generation
  2. 2. What is ERMEXNG? Reception Station Mexico New Generation (ERMEXNG) is the technological infrastructure of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food (SAGARPA) that allows to observe from space the country through satellite images.
  3. 3. Background The ERMEX has served the country since 2003 for observation, quantification and monitoring of natural resources and agrobusiness in the Mexican countryside, as well as in matters of national territory surveillance and emergency caused by weather. Since 2007, the Service for Food and Fisheries Information (SIAP) is responsible for the administration, whose antenna has captured more than half a million images that have been used by agencies of the three levels of government in Mexico as well as public universities and research.
  4. 4. Opening The ERMEXNG was inaugurated on February 19, 2013 by the President of México.
  5. 5. Coverage The technology ensures our country ERMEXNG exploiting satellite data, has a coverage radius of 2,500 kilometers.
  6. 6. Human resources The ERMEXNG is composed of staff of the Ministry of Defence and the SIAP divided into three working groups: 1. Development and System Management 2. Operation and users 3. Processing and analysis of satellite images
  7. 7. Facilities
  8. 8. Satellites
  9. 9. On September 9, 2012 entered orbit SPOT 6, this was the satellite thousandth in the history of humanity, and in 2014 SPOT 7 complement the supply of next-generation satellite, hence it was necessary to build a new antenna support this technology advanced and tamper to ensure the acquisition, processing and analysis of satellite imagery at least until 2023.
  10. 10. Technological advantages of satellites that captures the ERMEXNG Implementation of national mosaics. Ability to capture the same areas from different angles. Four hours to schedule urgent images. Spatial resolution of 1.5 meters. Radiometric resolution of 12 bits. Bands: panchromatic, green, red, blue and near infrared. Directly produces orthorectified images and natural color. It allows the acquisition of stereo images and tristereo in one pass. Linked satellites: SPOT and Pleiades.
