Thales Alenia Space has signed a contract with the UK Space Agency to work on MicroCarb a joint UK-French satellite mission which will measure sources and sinks of carbon the principal greenhouse gas driving global warming. It is the first European mission intended to characterise greenhouse gas fluxes on Earth's surface and gauge how much carbon is being absorbed by oceans and forests the main sinks on the planet.

    cloud, DARMON MARC, EUROSATORY, Eurosatory-2018, Marc Darmon, Marc_DARMON, Microsoft, PARTNER, Partnership, Thales and Microsoft today announce a preferred partnership for the development of a common Defence Cloud solution for armed forces. The solution that will be jointly developed by the two groups is based on the Microsoft Azure Stack platform a services-oriented and flexible hybrid cloud environment that will be fully cyber secured and adapted to military resilience constraints by Thales' Thales and Microsoft partner to develop a unique Defence Cloud solution for armed forces. Thanks to this new solution Thales as a field-proven trusted integrator and Microsoft as a trusted Cloud provider will accompany the digital transformation of armed forces both in the command center and on the Operations theater.
