European Space Agency selects CIMMYT to pilot new remote sensing project

8 September 2016, EL BATAN, Mexico (CIMMYT) – The International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) has been selected by the European Space Agency (ESA) to have access to the pilot version of the Sen2-Agri processing system and receive training on its use.

Satellites and high-tech solutions help African farmers face historic drought

African and European researchers are employing high-tech water management research methods to help low-tech South African smallholders improve food security. Additionally, extremely high levels of Microcystin toxicity and uranium contamination in important river systems spark calls for extra research on bioaccumulation through the human food chain.

GEO Partners with WHO to Support Global Health

A new partnership between the Group on Earth Observations and the World Health Organization seeks to leverage their areas of expertise to promote use of Earth observing technologies in addressing global health challenges.

Free on-line course to demonstrate satellites’ role in monitoring oceans’ health

©EUMETSAT. Rising sea levels, melting polar ice, coral bleaching, the ferocity of tropical and Atlantic storms – never has the health of the Earth’s oceans and its relationship to human lives and endeavours been under closer scrutiny.

Enlisting satellites in the final battle to end polio

Radar altimeter of CryoSat and Sentinel-3 set the new standards

Trying to measure sea levels around rugged coastlines is not always an easy task.

Nasa helps Sahel farmers fight climate change

The US space agency Nasa has launched a project designed to help West African farmers improve their modest yields despite the worsening effects of the climate change.

Earth Observation from Global Land to Urban Systems: Retrospect and Prospect

Continued urbanisation worldwide and associated environmental impacts have caught great attention in the remote sensing community and beyond. Earth observation technology, in conjunction with in situ data collection, has been used to observe, monitor, measure and model many of the components that comprise urban environmental systems and ecosystems cycles for decades.

NGA, NRO Announce Plans to Leverage Commercial Remote Sensing Capabilities

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and the National Reconnaissance Office todayannounced a joint activity to better leverage emerging commercial geospatial intelligence (GEOINT).

EU draft space policy calls for more military involvement

by Peter B. de Selding — July 18, 2016. PARIS – A draft summary of the European Commission’s space policy raises the issue of retooling Europe’s Galileo navigation and Copernicus Earth observation programs to make them more attractive to Europe’s military forces and whether Europe’s spaceport in South America should receive commission financing

EMSA expands use of Radarsat-2 information for maritime applications

(13 July 2016) MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates (MDA) has signed a four year contract with a ceiling of 31 million euros to provide Radarsat-2 information to the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA).

25 years ago - Europe's first Earth observation satellite was launched

As the launcher carrying the ERS-1 Earth observation satellite of the European Space Agency thunders into the night sky in the early hours (03:46 CEST) over the spaceport near Kourou (French Guiana), none of those present could know then that they were watching the launch of what would become the prototype of all modern European Earth observation satellites. The ERS-1 mission marked not only the advent of modern Earth observation by ESA but also the beginning of a long and long-lasting success story of remote observation by Space Systems of Airbus Defence and Space.

Copernicus Accelerator Seeking Applications

Until July 18, 2016, the European Commission is taking applications from individuals and teams from startups, SMEs, industrial companies, research institutes and universities for its Copernicus Accelerator, which hopes to foster development of commercial space applications and products. Participants will be able to determine the focus of this coaching, such as creating a business plan, acquiring customers, raising capital, etc.
