 - type of innovation of the product
 - challenge: problem to be solved and solution this product will solve

Rocket: The Earth in your pocket The rocket application provides a unique entry point to search, visualize and download Earth Observation products from various catalogs. collections are available : for search : Sentinel-1, Sentinel-2, Landsat 8, SPOT 6-7 and Pleiades images for download : Sentinel-1, Sentinel-2 and Landsat 8 data. The database is updated daily from the CNES PEPS platform (Sentinels) and from the USGS platform (Landsat). One of the coolest feature is the density result map. Basically, each result of a search request is represented as a density layer : the red part indicates a high density of results and the blue part a low density of results.
