Advanced Data Collection System (also called "Argos-3")
Data collection from in-situ Data Collection Platforms, with location capability
Transponder of messages from self-timed Data Collection Platforms, and location of the platform. Receiver frequency: 401.65 MHz with margins from - 70 to + 40 kHz (110 kHz bandwith). DCP bit rate: basic: 400 bps; maximum 4800 bps
Successor of DCS/2 (flown from NOAA-15 to NOAA-18) with the additional capability of sending messages to the Data Collection Platform (at 466 MHz) for the purpose of changing its configuration
