RapidEye joins ESA Third Party Missions Programme
08 November 2012
RapidEye, a leader in high-resolution, wide area repetitive coverage of Earth through its constellation of five satellites announced today that it is now part of the European Space Agency's (ESA) Third Party Mission (TPM) Programme. Through this programme, ESA provides data to the European and international scientific user community, as well as to supplement its own internal projects for research and application development.
RapidEye's archive data is now available to the scientific user community from ESA member states (including Canada), the European Commission Member States, as well as Africa and China (as part of the Dragon programme) through project proposal submission via the RapidEye information area on ESA's Earthnet Online Portal.
