Toulouse, 2020, September 21. Thales Alenia Space has today signed a close to €88 million contract with Airbus Defence and Space, prime contractor of the satellite, to develop the two IRIS flight models (Interferometric Radar Altimeter for Ice and Snow) of the Copernicu
How Earth observation satellites contribute to protecting our planet and to anticipating climate change consequences
As global warming and climate change have emerged as major concerns, the science of climatology has taken centre stage, with satellites playing a pivotal role by observing Earth, gathering data and providing information. As a key player, Thales Alenia Space is focused o
Built by Thales Alenia Space as prime contractor for the European Space Agency (ESA), Sentinel-1B and -3B were both orbited on April 25, albeit two years apart.
There's a busy month ahead for planet Earth, with the COP 25 in Madrid from 2-13 December and the UICN World Climate Day on 8 December. But beyond the meeting schedule, there is growing acceptance by our institutions, industries and citizens of the urgent need for
On the 8th of June we are celebrating the World Oceans Day to call attention for the protection of our oceans. Thales technology supports the observation on our oceans: Thales Alenia Space built the Sentinel-3 satellites and additional equipment to monitor the level of
The best place to understand the long-term trends affecting our planet is not on Earth, but high above it!
Precision surveillance by increasingly-powerful oceanography and weather observation satellites is delivering some priceless insights. Read on, for more about Thales Alenia Space’s specialised satellites and what we’re finding out.
Today, we can see all the layers in the atmosphere. We can analyse them for temperature, pressure, and gas concentrations. We can detect changes that are the origin of storms, and we can provide advance warning of the kind extreme weather that climate change appears to
