ESA is developing five Sentinel missions specifically for the operational needs of the Copernicus program.

The European Delegated Act on Copernicus provides free, full and open access to users of environmental data from the Copernicus program, including data from the Sentinel satellites.

The decision confirms the one recently adopted by European Space Agency (ESA) member states—as current owners of the Sentinel satellites—for granting free and open access to Sentinel data. It will allow long-term continued access to data through the operational phase of Copernicus, led by the European Commission.

The data will dramatically improve the management of the environment, help to understand and mitigate the effects of climate change and ensure civil security.
