- 1. Airbus selected for polar ice and snow topography mission [21 Sep 2020]
The European Space Agency (ESA) has selected Airbus to develop and build the Copernicus polar ice and snow topography mission (CRISTAL). With two satellites, the CRISTAL mission will ensure the long-term continuation of radar altimetry ice elevation and change records. It is one of six new missions to expand the current capabilities of the Copernicus space component. The contract is worth €300 million.
- 2. Sea-level charting satellite passes tests [27 Jul 2020]
The Copernicus Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite has passed a series of strenuous tests, and engineers can now prepare it for shipment to the U.S. for lift-off on a SpaceX Falcon-9, which is scheduled for 10 November.
- 3. Airbus checking ocean satellite Sentinel-6A's operational fitness [16 Nov 2019]
Airbus space engineers are currently testing the Copernicus Sentinel-6A satellite at the Space Test Centre of Industrieanlagen-Betriebsgesellschaft mbH (IABG) in Ottobrunn - near Munich - to prove its readiness for space. During the test campaign, which will last until spring 2020, the Airbus team will check that the satellite is able to survive the severe conditions of launch and the space environment.
- 4. Call for dedicated polar Sentinel satellite [29 Mar 2016]
"European scientists are worried they could soon lose a vital tool for monitoring Earth's ice fields. The Cryosat-2 radar spacecraft has transformed studies of the Arctic, the Antarctic and Greenland, but is now operating beyond its design lifetime. A group of 179 researchers is concerned the ageing mission could die in orbit at any time. They have urged the European Commission (EC) and the European Space Agency (Esa) to start planning a replacement." (BBC)
- 5. Sentinel-3A en route to Plesetsk [20 Nov 2015]
The latest satellite for the European Commission's Copernicus environmental programme has left France bound for the Plesetsk launch site in Russia and launch late next month.
- 6. ESA and Airbus DS sign contract for new Copernicus mission [11 May 2015]
ESA and Airbus Defence and Space have signed the development and production contract for the Jason-CS/Sentinel-6A satellite. Jason-CS/Sentinel-6 is a two-spacecraft mission to carry out high-precision measurements of ocean surface topography. The contract is worth €177 million.
- 7. ESA expects no problems caused by DMSP-F13 debris [05 Mar 2015]
After studying the recent explosive break-up of a U.S. satellite, ESA space debris experts have concluded this event does not increase the collision risk to nearby ESA missions in any meaningful way.
- 8. Airbus DS selected as prime contractor for Jason-CS/Sentinel-6 [05 Dec 2014]
The European Space Agency (ESA) has selected Airbus Defence and Space as the prime contractor to develop and construct the first Jason-CS/Sentinel-6 satellite. Jason-CS/Sentinel-6 is a mission to carry out high-precision measurements of ocean surface topography.
- 9. ESA, USSTRATCOM to exchange more data [30 Oct 2014]
ESA has signed an agreement with the U.S. Strategic Command to improve data exchange between the organisations for supporting missions.
- 10. IDEAS+ wins contract to support ESA EO missions [17 Jun 2014]
Telespazio VEGA UK, together with the international consortium IDEAS+, has been awarded a contract to monitor the quality of Earth Observation (EO) data from European Space Agency (ESA) satellites and selected third party missions.
