Europe’s SpaceDataHighway Relays First Sentinel-1 Images Via Laser

ESA unveiled the first Sentinel-1 satellite images sent via the European Data Relay System’s world-leading laser technology in high orbit. The two images were taken by the radar on the Copernicus Sentinel-1A over La Reunion Island and its coastal area. The first was scanned in a high-resolution mode, the second in a wide-swath mode that

Launch of the First Satellite in the “SpaceDataHighway” Programme

EDRS-A, the first relay satellite in the SpaceDataHighway programme (also called EDRS), will be launched to geostationary orbit on 28 January 2016 (Baikonour time). The SpaceDataHighway will provide high speed laser communications in space of up to 1.8 Gigabit per second. This major programme, which cost nearly €500M to develop, is the result of a

Examining the EDRS SpaceDataHighway’s Earth Observation Advantage

Earth imaging sensors will transfer data much more rapidly once Airbus Defense and Space’s European Data Relay System (EDRS) SpaceDataHighway comes online. The laser-based communications system will provide high-speed data transfer for low Earth orbit satellites as well as unmanned aircraft systems (UASs). Earth Imaging Journal’s Editorial Director Matt Ball spoke with Jörg Herrmann, head
