Arianespace and EUMETSAT
have announced the signing of a contract entrusting Arianespace with the first launch services for the Meteosat Third Generation (MTG) series of geostationary satellites.
The focus will be on satellite applications especially the EUMETSAT
In practical terms, it will be based on both existing or planned European space infrastructure, ie primarily ESA, EUMETSAT
and member states' satellites, and on space infrastructure to be co-financed by the EU and the ESA, notably the programme meant to develop and build satellite missions known as Sentinels'.
It has welcomed among its members the weather services of Germany, Austria, Romania, the Czech Republic, Finland, Montenegro, Slovakia, Croatia, and the Netherlands, as well as EUMETSAT
and the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF).
Arianespace has successfully launched two geostationary satellites: Star One C4 for the private operator Embratel Star One, asatellite communications company in South America, and MSG-4 for EUMETSAT
, the European organisation dedicated to weather, climate and environmental monitoring.
20-21 October - Stockholm (Sweden): 'Space and the Arctic', conference organised under the auspices of the Swedish Presidency of the Council of the European Union, the Swedish National Space Board and the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute together with the European Space Agency, EUMETSAT
and the European Commission.
It contributes to the development, deployment and operation of corresponding European space infrastructure, while making maximum use of existing and planned assets available to Europe, including those of EUMETSAT
, the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites.
Europe as a whole (the Member States, the European Space Agency, EUMETSAT
and the EU) is a major global space player.
Dieter Klaes, programme scientist at EUMETSAT
, Europes organisation for the exploitation of meteorological satellites, said: "The MetOp satellites have significantly improved numerical weather prediction.
