1 KSAT Products and Services By Rolf Terje Enoksen, Kongsberg Satellite Services WORLD CLASS through people, technology and dedication

2 Kongsberg Satellite Services (KSAT) World leading commercial satellite centre Providing product and services based on polar orbiting satellites Satellite ground stations: Tromsø - 69 N SvalSat - 78 N Grimstad 58 N TrollSat (Troll, Antarktis) 72 S Head office located in Tromsø, North Norway / 2 / 10-Dec-09

3 Kongsberg Satellite Services Kongsberg Defense and Aerospace (KDA) Norwegian Space Centre (NCS) 50 % 50 % Kongsberg Satellite Services Tromsø Station Grimstad Station SvalSat (Svalbard) TrollSat (Antarctica) Business Segments Ground Station Services Earth Observation / 3 / 10-Dec-09

4 Activities Company business areas: Ground station services Launch and LEOP support, TT&C services, global data dump Earth Observation focus on SAR missions (Radarsat, Envisat,...) Image data processing and distribution Provision of information services, e.g. Detection of oil spills Round the clock near real-time operations (24h/365d) / 4 / 10 December, 2009

5 The KSAT Svalbard Station (SvalSat) Established in 1997 Currently 6 main antennas (11-13m) New antennas planned for 2009 Controlled from TNOC (Tromsø Network Operations Centre) Satellite access: 14 of 14 orbits Telecommunication - fiber optics World leading met. satellite station (Eumetsat, IPO) Serves the large space agencies & satellite owners

6 Satellite operations in Antarctica - TrollSat Operational 2007, Commanding&control from Tromsø 72 00"S, 02 32"E Customers GeoEye 1 Potential: ESA, EUMETSAT, NPP/POESS meteorology, NASA Envisat/Radarsat demonstrations 2007/2008 Ground station access and services from pole-to-pole Flexible, multipurpose/mission antenna systems Single interface: Tromsø Satellite commanding/control Launch/early orbit support (LEOP) Data direct downlink and global recorder dump Data utlisation for services Only integrated network with this capability: Competitive edge for further business development / 6 / 10-Dec-09

7 Planning and delivery KSAT Order Desk Envisat National acquisition access approved for SvalSAT, Tromsø and Grimstad Planning through EoliSA tool and electronic ordering system Delivery time within our antenna coverage from 15 minutes Areas outside our antenna coverage (Artemis/ESA stations) through ESA Creation of Geo boxes Direct via Artemis between 1 2 hours delivery time Tape dump between 2 4 hours delivery time Radarsat Both Grimstad, Tromsø and SvalSAT sertified Radarsat-2 ACP tool and electronic ordering system Delivery time within our antenna coverage from 15 minutes Outside KSAT antenna coverage: Descending passes minutes Ascending passes 10 minutes

16 Example Oil Spill Detection Discharge from a Norwegian offshore oil installation Autumn 2004 Radarsat-1 SAR image (over left) Aerial photo, Coastal Directorate (over right) Aerial SLAR image, Coastal Directorate (right) / 16 / 10-Dec-09

17 Identification of source Combining satellite images with AIS -a powerful combination Oil spill outside the Norwegian coast, ships in the area. Warning with excact position, size and confidence level is given. Combined with AIS, tracked back, one of the ship lanes closely corresponds with the potensial spill. The vessel can easily be identified, and authorities can decide on further action. / 17 / 10-Dec-09
