European conference addresses increasing demand for EO data
Date:5/28/2008

For more than 40 years, Earth observing satellites have delivered valuable data about our planet and have enabled a better understanding and improved management of the Earth and its environment. Demands for these data are increasing daily as decision-makers are faced with responding to environmental change, managing sustainable development and responding to natural disasters and civil security issues.

In order to address these needs, ESA, the German Space Agency (DLR) and the German Aerospace Industries Association (BDLI) have jointly organised a conference aimed at identifying the challenges ahead and exploring specific needs for the future.

European experts from ESA and DLR are attending the conference being held on 27 and 28 May on the occasion of the ILA Berlin Air Show in Germany to provide an overview of existing Earth observation (EO) applications in the area of climate, environmental management and the civil security sector.

Representatives from public authorities, private companies and international organisations are attending the conference entitled Earth observation: Solutions for Decision Making to explore specific demands for EO products.

Speaking at the conference, Dr Volker Liebig, ESAs Director of Earth Observation, outlined ESAs vigorous EO programmes, which include launching 17 satellites over the next seven years.

These include the family of Earth Explorers that will measure key Earth system processes to understand their role in climate change and the Sentinels that will provide operational information services for global monitoring of the environment and security.

ESAs Head of Science, Applications and Future Technologies Department Dr Stephen Briggs introduced ESAs Climate Change Initiative, a new Programme Proposal that will be presented to the ESA Ministerial Council in November 2008.

The objectives of the programme will focus on the delivery of satellite-based Essential
