The European Space Agency (ESA) has chosen T Systems as service provider for the Copernicus Data Space Ecosystem. Copernicus is the earth observation component of the EU Space programme. This component is implemented in partnership with the European Space Agency. It provides information services for the maximum benefit of science, politics, industry and EU citizens.
Copernicus Sentinel satellites continuously provide data for Earth observation. This includes data from the entire surface of the Earth as well as the Earth's atmosphere. With relevant analyses, they provide up-to-date information about the state of the Earth. The large volumes of data can thus be used to conduct trend analyses in various fields like e.g., science, industry and politics. They serve, for example, as a basis for better assessing or reporting on extreme weather situations, climatic conditions and the effects of natural disasters. Agriculture and politics also benefit from 24/7 Earth observation. Farmers can see where and when water or fertilizer needs to be applied to optimize yields, or the consistency of the soil and the threat of an insect infestation. Policymakers have a concrete database for the correct distribution of agricultural subsidies, for example.
