Timely placed a few days in advance of Swarm's fourth anniversary in space, ESA Member States participating to the Earth Observation Envelope Programme have given a nice birthday present to our mission.

At its 172nd meeting on 15-16 November the Earth Observation Programme Board approved the extension of Swarm until the end of 2021.

The mission team is now busy implementing extensions of all the relevant activities under contract, as well as a good number of new ones.

The message to users is that through this decision the Swarm ecosystem will continue to grow in the years ahead.
