When the image is available, the satellite is responsible for downloading the image and the antenna (outside to USS purpose) is in charge for providing the image data to USS (Data handling Function facility), the incoming image data is processed in order to generate low level product (Ingestion and Processing Service facility from raw data up to L2 product) and if required to generate high level product (Image Exploitation Service facility from L2 up to L6). The raw data and all generated data are stored in a dedicated archive and at end the required products are disseminated to the end user as required (Catalogue Archive and Dissemination facility). In addition in the frame of USS there is a dedicated facility to assess the image quality and to perform a calibration activity (Calibration and Quality Service facility). From management point of view the USS is composed by several supplier: 1 Turkish Supplier (ASELSAN) devoted to develop 4 facilities; 1 French Supplier (Thales Services) responsible for low level processing chain and calibration and image quality assessment facilities; 1 Italian Supplier responsible for raw data provisioning facility.
