25.04.2008 - DMC Satellite Downloading Imagery to Japan
DMC satellite, UK-DMC successfully downloaded a complete image of Hiroshima prefecture to the National institute of Information and Communication Technology (NiCT) Groundstation. Imagery downloaded on the morning of April the 25th, including a clear picture of Hiroshima city, used the standard internet protocols that make receiving imagery from DMC satellites a routine task.
