ESA’S Sentinel-2 satellite will provide systematic global acquisitions of high-resolution multispectral imagery for Europe's GMES program.

At a recent symposium in Italy, the European Space Agency (ESA) demonstrated how its upcoming Sentinel-2 satellites will benefit current and future projects that exploit Earth observation data.

“We are currently struggling with fragmented satellite data, so the timely information that Sentinel-2 will provide is important,” says Chris Steenmans, program head at the European Environment Agency’s Shared Environmental Information System. “The mission will also complement other Earth observation investments on a global level.”

Sentinel-2, planned for launch next year, is one of five Sentinel missions ESA is developing for Europe’s Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES) program. Through GMES, decision makers will have access to reliable, timely and accurate information services to manage the environment, understand and mitigate the effects of climate change and ensure civil security.
