LRPT - The "low-rate picture transmission (LRPT)" is a digital transmission system, intended to deliver images and data from an orbital weather satellite directly to end users via a VHF radio signal. It is used aboard polar-orbiting, near-Earth weather satellite programs such as MetOp and NPOESS & Meteor M.
It provides three image channels at full sensor resolution (10-bit, 1 km/pixel, six lines/second)
