GMES – 40 Earth Observation Missions Together

  • Rating12345

PR – ESA, as coordinator of GMES Space Component and related data access, received in response to a call 12 proposals offering to provide data from more than 40 European and non-European Earth Observation satellites to GMES Services over the next years.


Among the satellites are ESA Member States’ missions, such as France’s Spot and Pleiades satellites, Germany’s TerraSAR-X, Italy’s CosmoSkyMed, the UK-led DMC constellation (including the soon-to-be launched DMC-UK2 and Spain’s Deimos-1), as well as Canada’s Radarsat, Israel’s EROS and other non-European missions distributed through European companies. In addition, ESA will act as data provider for its own Earth Observation (EO) missions, such as Envisat and ERS-2, as well as its Third Party Missions.

Some agencies, such as ESA and the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT), are offering their data free of charge, while others are offering favourable conditions to the GMES Services.
