ESA Meets Increasing Demand for Earth Observation Data

  • Rating12345

PR – Earth observation satellite data have never been in more demand than
today as missions have demonstrated their ability to enable better
understanding and improved management of the Earth and its environment.

 
ESA is meeting this demand by providing additional data, serving large
science programmes, enlarging network stations and making more data
available in near-real time.

Responding to calls from ESA’s Principal Investigators (PI), the
agency has released some 20 Announcement of Opportunity (AO) calls over
the last decade that allow access to Earth observation (EO) data from
ESA’s ERS-1, ERS-2, Envisat, Earth Explorers and Third Party Missions.

As a result, more than 1500 scientific projects for research and
applications development have been accepted and are receiving data free
of charge.
