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

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.
