Earth observation programmes and their benefits for the environment, society and Europe’s economy will take centre-stage at next week’s ILA Berlin Air Show.
The Director of ESA’s Earth Observation Programmes, Volker Liebig, will open the panel discussion with a presentation on ESA’s activities.
Space-based Earth observation is a priority for Europe – a densely populated, highly industrialised continent.
In response to the need for information to understand and manage our environment, a strong scientific community and high public awareness of environmental protection, resource planning, climate change and disaster management have emerged.
For four decades, European satellites have delivered high-quality data from space, triggering major discoveries and providing concrete evidence of phenomena such as of the evolution of the ozone hole and climate change.
Many aspects of Earth’s physics are still a mystery, making scientific projects crucial to better understanding of our world.
With the launch of the first Sentinel satellite developed for Europe’s Copernicus environment monitoring programme, remote sensing from space has entered a new era.
As an initiative headed by the European Commission in partnership with ESA, Copernicus uses accurate and timely data from satellites and other sources to provide key information services to improve the way the environment is managed, help mitigate the effects of climate change, enable the creation of new applications and services for citizens and businesses, and safeguard everyday lives.
The presentation on Europe’s Earth observation activities is scheduled for 11:00–12:00 CEST (10:00–11:00 GMT) on 22 May, during the Trade Visitor days, inside the conference area of the ILA Space Pavilion.
Representatives from ESA will join colleagues from the DLR German Aerospace Center, Eumetsat, Airbus Defence & Space, the University of Jena, European Commission and the European Maritime Safety Agency to discuss the multiple benefits of satellite Earth observation.
The panel will present scientific results, as well as the expected applications of future Earth observation missions.
