Changes in the future satellite remote sensing industry

Recommended Posts


Miguel Bello Mora, chief executive of Madrid-based Deimos Space, said the company’s current satellite, Deimos-1, will lose much of its market when Europe’s Sentinel-2 satellite is launched in the coming year.

Sentinel-2 is part of the European Commission’s Copernicus program, which includes multiple satellites with different sensors to be deployed in the coming two years. Copernicus managers have promised that the satellite data will be available on a free and open basis.
