A Geostationary Meteorological Satellite (GMS) Receiving System to receive satellite cloud imageries transmitted from the Japanese GMS located above the equator at longitude 140 degrees East.

A Satellite Distribution System (SADIS) which consists of a Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) equipment to receive products from the World Area Forecast System (WAFS) Centre at London. The centre is one of the two world centres responsible for the generation and dissemination of global gridded binary (GRIB) data, Difax significant weather charts, wind and temperature data and text weather data such as aerodrome hourly weather reports and terminal aerodrome forecasts.

A software system, the Meteorological Data Processing System (MDPS) for the acquisition, processing, analysis and integration of all data and product from the above systems, data and information from Global Telecommunication System (GTS), Aeronautical Fixed Telecommunication Network (AFTN) and Weather Radar Network received from the Malaysian Meteorological Service's Headquarters at Petaling Jaya as well as data from Tenaga Nasional Berhad's National Lightning Detection Network (NLDN) to generate and display meteorological products and information.
