Discussion of two artificial satellites orbited for purposes of meteorological observation which, together with data reception, processing and distribution points, form the experimental space meteorological system meteor. The mutual position of the orbits of the satellites is selected so that they accomplish weather observations over each region of the earths sphere at intervals of approximately 6 hours. This enables pursuit of the development of atmospheric process in the various areas and creates the possibility of obtaining and processing meteorological data from half the surface of the earth within a period of 24 hours. The complicated problem of processing the data is solved with the aid of a ground control complex. Telemetrical information is put into rapidly operating electronic computers. Practically immediately after communicating with the satellites computers complete the processing of all telemetered data, edit it and transmit it in form suited for use. Author
