ESA is pleased to announce that an improved access to the collections distributed online by ESA through the Third Party Missions programme has been deployed.

Two enhanced features have been set up to ease access to these collections:

  • A TPM online access list has been created to provide users with a centralised access to all the TPM online collections dissemination systems (17 TPM collections)
  • A new online dissemination system providing a geographical catalogue, a folder tree access and a filename search has been deployed for 13 TPM collections
