ESA and EC take major step forward in GMES
Date:12/19/2007

ESA and the European Commission have signed a 48 million grant that will allow the space agency to ensure the coordinated and timely supply of satellite-based Earth Observation data for the preoperational phase of GMES from 2008 to 2010. The signing of the grant marks the first real cooperation between the two in the GMES framework.

The GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security) programme is a European Union-led initiative in partnership with ESA to combine ground- and space-based observations to develop an integrated environmental monitoring capability.

ESAs role within GMES is to coordinate and implement the dedicated GMES Space Component, which involves developing the five Sentinel satellites, and Ground Segment and to coordinate data access to the Sentinels and to other missions mainly from ESA Member States which contribute to fulfilling of the GMES requirements.

Coordinated, comprehensive and sustained global monitoring of the Earth system is one of the key factors to respond to this challenge. GMES is the European solution for the needs of citizens in Europe to access reliable information on the status of their environment."

Dr Volker Liebig, Director of ESAs Earth Observation Programme, signed the agreement on behalf of ESA. "The data access grant is the first step of a wider GMES cooperation with the EC, using ESA's 30 years of experience in collecting and distributing necessary Earth Observation data to users," Liebig said.
