Spain joins Copernicus Sentinel Collaborative Ground Segment
26 November 2019
ESA and Spain's Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology have signed an understanding that will boost Spain's access to Copernicus Sentinel data.
Under the agreement, Spain will establish a national data centre which will source its data directly from a dedicated distribution point that is reserved for ESA Member States and Copernicus Participating States. ESA will also provide technical support to ensure the national centre benefits from the enhanced download capabilities.
The understanding was signed by Jan Wörner, Director General of ESA, and by Javier Ponce, Director General of the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI), as ESA's ‘Space19+' Ministerial Council gets underway in Seville, Spain.
