World Space Alliance continues to strengthen
27 September 2019
The ESA–SAP World Space Alliance continues to grow as Airbus Defence and Space, the Environmental Systems Research Institute and GeoVille join the partnership.
Earlier this year, SAP – a German-based multinational software corporation – and ESA created the World Space Alliance (WSA). This was another milestone in the ESA—SAP partnership that was initiated in 2016.
Following a meeting in Toulouse, France, on 27 September, the WSA partnership continues to grow and strengthen with the addition of Airbus Defence and Space, via its product line Intelligence, Environmental Systems Research Institute, an international supplier of geographic information system software, and GeoVille, a satellite-based land-monitoring company.
With a wealth of data coming from satellite missions, which are pertinent to climate and environmental monitoring, this new partnership will identify new ways and means to promote the development of innovative business ideas enriched with Earth observation data.
