The received data is processed by the HimawariCast reception system and can be used in weather forecasting, disaster prevention, traffic, shipping and aviation.

A parabolic antenna is installed which forwards the data to the DVB-S2 receiver where it is converted and stored in the Data Reception Processing Workstation. From there the data is sent to the Forecaster Workstation. The system configuration can be designed to suit the client's use requirements.
