4th EARSeL Workshop on Education and Training

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
English
European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories

Remote sensing of the earth covers many topics that are significant for natural science disciplines in school and university curricula. Satellite imagery and data derived from satellite sensors enable studies ranging from local phenomena around schools, up to large-scale perspectives showing the diversity of nature in the various climatic regions on earth. This allows thus to point out the dependence between local and global scales.

Galileo: First navigation signals transmitted by FM3

Europe’s third Galileo satellite has transmitted its first test navigation signals back to Earth. The two Galileo satellites launched last October have reached their final orbital position and are in the midst of testing.

The third Galileo Flight Model, known as FM3, transmitted its first test navigation signal in the E1 band on 1 December, the band being used for Galileo’s freely available Open Service interoperable with GPS. Then, on the morning of 4 December, the satellite broadcast signals across all three Galileo bands – E1, E5 and E6.

MSG-3 satellite ready to continue weather-monitoring service

International partners are looking ahead to the newest member in a series of weather satellites that deliver images to European forecasters: MSG-3 is set for launch this summer. The Meteosat Second Generation (MSG) satellites are designed to improve weather prediction. The first in the series, MSG-1 – also known as Meteosat-8 – was launched in 2002. MSG-2 followed three years later. Both have been successful in continuing the legacy of the operational meteorological satellites that started with Meteosat-1 in 1977.

Galileo Will Be Used for Emergency Management

With the first two Galileo In-Orbit Verification (IOV) satellites already in orbit, the European Space Agency (ESA) is currently pondering whether or not the spacecraft could also be used to manage distress calls and other types of emergency. Galileo is being developed primarily as a satellite navigation and global positioning system. When complete, it will feature nearly three dozen components, spread out in strategically-placed orbital points, to ensure maximum coverage. ESA officials say that the assets could enable additional uses.

A new generation of meteorological satellites

Europe’s next fleet of meteorological satellites is set to debut in 2017, following today’s signing of the development contract. While Meteosat Third Generation will ensure full continuity with the current Meteosat satellite family, it will also introduce significant improvements. At an event held today at ESA’s headquarters in Paris, the contract between ESA and Thales Alenia Space for developing the new Meteosat Third Generation (MTG) family of satellites was signed.
