Chapter

Abstract

In this chapter is introduced the integration of satellite meteorological observation system with little satellite systems, Stratospheric Platform Systems (SPS) or high-altitude platforms (HAP), in particular unmanned airship and aircraft stations, Satellite Synthetic Aperture Radars (SSAR) and GNSS systems. Thus, all these systems have additional potential to be deployed and after integrated with current meteorological satellite networks.
