The European Space Agency's (ESA) Copernicus program fulfills the mandate of the European Union to place a series of sentinel earth observation satellites in orbit that transmit about 20 terabytes of images to Earth every day. By now, the previously available satellites have generated several petabytes of data, giving users inside and outside the EU new glimpses from the cosmos. This data is made accessible in a cloud-based manner via Mundi Web Services. The aim is to promote new geo-based business models.
The EU makes its Earth observation data available free of charge with the intention of creating new business models and applications for mainly European users: from students and software providers, to large corporations and the public sector.
With Mundi Web Services we have basically democratized satellite data. Everyone has free access to the data and can process it for his own, and also commercial, purposes.
Mundi Web Services is the answer to these challenges. It simplifies the access and use of satellite data. Mundi Web Services is a consortium led by Atos. T-Systems is another established ICT player on-board; it adds its Open Telekom Cloud and its experience with modern ICT service models into the mix. Experienced providers from the geoservice segment, such as the Italian e-geos, the Austrian EOX, the French Thales Aliena Space, the German GAF, and the German Aerospace Center (DLR), contribute technical expertise and applications.
Only a mature cloud infrastructure can enable companies to successfully transform their digital environment. T-Systems supports you on this journey with multi-cloud solutions and innovative service tools. Learn more about T-Systems’ strategic approach.
