Philippines to put up earth observation center

THE PHILIPPINES is putting up PEDRO (Philippine Earth Data Resource Observation Center), is one of the five components of the PHL-Microsat program of Department of Science and Technology poised to be the satellite ground station and always ready to receive data and satellite images from Diwata-1 at a speed of 2.4Mpbs.

EUMETSAT’s Director-General, Alain Ratier, and Jean-Yves Le Gall, President of CNES, signed a cooperation agreement on the ARGOS Data Collection System to be included in the payload of the Metop-SG satellites of the EUMETSAT Polar System of Second Generat

The agreement was signed in the presence of Christophe Vassal, chairman of the Collecte Localisation Satellites (CLS) Board, the operator of ARGOS and a subsidiary formed by CNES and the French Ifremer institute in 1986, which – like EUMETSAT – is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

Le Gall Calls for More Satellites to Help Fight Climate Change

[Via Satellite 05-40-2016] Satellites will play a vital role in ensuring the agreements reached last year at the COP21 Paris Climate Conference are followed through, but more are needed, according to Jean Yves Le Gall, president of the Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales (CNES), the French space agency. Speaking April 29 at the Washington Space Business Roundtable, Le Gall said that the COP21 conference, which he regarded as perhaps the most momentous accomplishment of the decade, drove home the realization to many world leaders that satellites are an inimitable resource in the fight against anthropogenic global warming.
