The Earth orbits the Sun.
Satellites orbit the Earth.
at the center of satellite radio waves is the Satellite Radio Monitoring Center.
The Satellite Radio Monitoring Center protects Korea's sovereignty over radio waves and creates a new value for all.
Connecting space and the future
Satellite Radio Monitoring Center
1992 Launched Korea’s first-ever satellite ‘Wooribyeol 1’.
2002 Established the Satellite Radio Monitoring Center.
2010 Launched Korea’s first-ever geostationary orbit satellite ’Cheonrian 1’.
2013 Launched Korea’s first space launch vehicle ’Naro’.
There are 500,000 satellites that were expired and remain in space.
Globally, there are 1,400 satellites in operation.
In the space pioneering era of increasing importance of satellite orbit and radio management,
One who stretches out first gets the right to space first
Did you know that many satellites owned by other countries are passing over the Korean Peninsula?
Space as we know it is not infinite as we think..
In fact, space that humans can take advantage of by current technologies is already crowded. Satellite orbits and frequencies are also in shortage.
The quality of satellite communications service relies on the satellite radio resources we secure,
All countries in the world are in competition to secure satellite orbits and radio resources.
And conflicts of interests between countries due to harmful interference are coordinated by the International Telecommunication Union.
In 2002, Korea was the fifth to establish the Satellite Radio Monitoring Center and started satellite radio monitoring following the USA, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Japan.
The guardian of space radio waves that never sleeps.
The Satellite Radio Monitoring Center protects Korea’s sovereignty over radio waves.
Suggesting the initial concept of satellite communications.
The world’s first communication satellite.
The age of satellite communication began.
Closing the traditional satellite communication era, the era of satellite service with huge potential is opening up.
Space radio wave will herald a creative future for the world.
The Satellite Radio Monitoring Center looks forward to a better tomorrow for the efficient use of satellite radio resources.
Aiming to launch a lunar probe by 2020, Korea is making its best efforts to develop a comprehensive satellite radio monitoring system required for the space development program.
In addition, digital contents industries that are GPS-based augmented reality technology and satellite-related industries such as unmanned aerial vehicles and autonomous cars require much cleaner, more efficient radio wave environments.
However, orbits and frequencies for satellites are limited. That is why many countries are building or expanding satellite radio observation facilities, to ensure satellite network protection and stable operation, also to secure satellite radio resources as much as practicable.
The Satellite Radio Monitoring Center monitors radio waves emitted by a satellite over the Korean Peninsula to promptly eliminate any sources of interference in the satellite network and collects satellite orbit and frequency data, thereby keeping the order of satellite radio uses locally and internationally.
The Satellite Radio Monitoring Center uses geostationary orbit antennas to ensure that all geostationary orbit satellites between Longitude 55 degree east and 160 degree west longitude are in compliance with international regulations.
And searches all non-geostationary orbit satellites passing over the Korean Peninsula such as GPS satellites by using non-geostationary satellite monitoring systems.
Non-geostationary orbit satellites are expanding the domain of its use to satellite navigation and high-resolution earth observation. Radio resources for disaster prevention systems and advanced satellite services are directly connected to national security.
By building a non-geostationary orbit satellite radio monitoring system, the Satellite Radio Monitoring Center thoroughly monitors not only geostationary orbit satellites but also about 700 non-geostationary orbit satellites, thereby making proactive responses to Korea’s satellite industries and international disputes over satellite orbits and radio waves.
Korea is an ICT powerhouse.
The Satellite Radio Monitoring Center connects to the value of future creation.
The center offers radio wave classes for children, as well as field experience and internship programs for engineering students, hoping to foster future talents.
Internally, we support a satellite radio monitoring advisory committee in place to support the satellite industry’s technical development.
Externally, we establish building cooperative basis with many countries in the world to contribute to the development of the satellite industry.
Furthermore, the Satellite Radio Monitoring Center commits itself to various research activities to acquire up-to-date global satellite radio wave market trends and latest technologies. We also play a leading role in the international standardization of local technologies to secure satellite resources.
The leader of space radio monitoring,
the Satellite Radio Monitoring Center is building the cornerstone of the Space Age in Korea.
The values we believe in should become more far-reaching.
The challenging spirit of the Satellite Radio Monitoring Center will bring the future value of space radio waves to higher level.
If we believe in what we do, the belief becomes confidence in our future.
The Satellite Radio Monitoring Center stands between space and the future.
