Through ESA’s Third Party Missions Programme, researchers, scientists and companies from around the world can apply to access Planet’s high-frequency, high-resolution satellite data for non-commercial use.
Remote sensing scientists and data users are set to highlight how they use ESA’s Earth observation data to enable cutting-edge research and development activities at a series of scientific sessions held at the Living Planet Symposium.
In the framework of the Third Party Missions programme, ESA is offering, for scientific research and application development, access to archive and new tasking data from the Vision-1 mission upon submission and acceptance of a project proposal.
Vision-1 – which is the result of a collaboration between Airbus Defence and Space and Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd. (SSTL) – provides sub-metric imagery to support activities across many industries, including urban planning, agricultural monitoring, land classification, natural resource management and disaster monitoring.
ESA is pleased to announce that the operational issue affecting the access to EO data and services has been resolved and nominal operations of the EO Sign In authentication and authorisation system have resumed.
An issue on the LRM waveform scaled power introduced in Baseline D, affecting the computation of backscatter, has been resolved with the transfer to operation of the new Ice Baseline E processors on 20 September 2021.
