CFOSAT ground tracks and ground stations (video)

The Chinese (CNSA) and French (Cnes) Space Agencies have jointly developed a satellite mission devoted to the monitoring of the ocean surface wind and wave, and related ocean and atmospheric science and applications: CFOSAT project (Chinese-French Oceanic SATellite). The CFOSAT spacecraft carries two main instruments: the French radar SWIM (Surface Wave Investigation and Monitoring) to determine the direction, amplitude and wavelength of surface waves and the Chinese scatterometer SCAT to measure wind speed. The ground segment is shared between Chinese (Mission and Control centers) and French centers (Instrument mission center and waves and wind mission center).
