25 Jahre erfolgreicher Zusammenarbeit von GAF, DLR und Antrix
Die GAF AG, das Deutsche Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR) in Neustrelitz und die Antrix Corporation arbeiten seit 25 Jahren erfolgreich zusammen. Sie unterzeichneten 1996 einen Kooperationsvertrag über den Empfang indischer Fernerkundungsdaten für die erste exklusive Vermarktung von Erdbeobachtungsdaten in Europa. Damit begannen 25 Jahre erfolgreicher Zusammenarbeit der drei Partner. Sie sorgen bis heute und auch künftig für den Empfang, Vertrieb und die Verarbeitung von Millionen von Satellitendaten.
25 years of successful cooperation between GAF AG, DLR and Antrix
GAF, the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Neustrelitz and Antrix Corporation have a successful cooperation stretching back 25 years. In 1996, they signed agreements for the purpose of receiving Indian Earth observation data and distributing the data to European customers on an exclusive basis. That was the starting point for 25 years of successful cooperation and the acquisition of millions of scenes so far – and on into the future.

GAF AG and GIZ have successfully launched the Earth Observation Laboratory (EOL) at the premises of the “FAZO” Institute in the Republic of Tajikistan.
The activities are part of the GIZ project “Technology Based Adaptation to Climate Change in rural Areas of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan” (TCCA-RA). GAF AG was contracted to assist in establishing the EOL facility and infrastructure. It was also commissioned to support FAZO with intensive capacity building activities, focusing on earth observation and remote sensing technologies. The thematic emphasis lies on mitigating the impacts of climate change in the country. The first six-week training block was concluded successfully in mid-July with positive feedback from trainees and GIZ.
As part of the Committee of Land Management and Geodesy of the Republic of Tajikistan, FAZO intends to use the new EOL as a future hub for earth observation products and services in the country.
YOUR answers count! 10-Minutes-Questionnaire in English & Spanish to participate in designing capacity building material within the EO4SD-Forest Management project.
Earth Observation for Sustainable Development (EO4SD) is an ESA initiative to support the uptake of Earth Observation (EO)-derived information in sustainable development. The EO4SD Forest Management project (EO4SD-FM) – aims to demonstrate the utility and benefit of mainstreaming EO-based forest related products and services for improved Forest Management for IFI programmes and stakeholders in Client States (CS).
The EO4SD-FM project will provide a quality assured portfolio of geo-spatial products that can be used in tropical dry and tropical humid ecosystems ins, such as in in Latin America, South East Asia and Africa.
As all products and services will be user-driven – the EO4SD project team asks all interested stakeholders to fill out a 10-Minute-questionnaire, which is available in English and Spanish.
European VHR2021 project to support Copernicus is now launched
The Airbus-led consortium with GAF, selected by the European Commission and the European Space Agency (ESA), has started acquiring data to provide the Copernicus Earth Observation Programme with very high-resolution (VHR) satellite-based image coverage of Europe for 2021.
By combining its skills, experience and expertise, the Airbus-GAF consortium will optimise the acquisition of data using a unique fleet of satellites. In the project, the Airbus optical satellite range, consisting of Pléiades, SPOT and Vision-1, as well as the WorldView, GeoEye, Deimos, SuperView, Kompsat and TripleSat satellites, will be used.
FREE WEBINAR||E-GEOS AND THE NEW FRONTIERS OF RADAR-BASED APPLICATIONS WEBINAR
On 30 APRIL 2021 at h 15.00 (CEST) the free e-GEOS web-event is dedicated to SAR capabilities that e-GEOS can deploy using the best constellation on the market, COSMO-SkyMed Second Generation and the best combination of SAR data from the two systems COSMO-SkyMed Second Generation and SAOCOM, the Argentinean SAR Constellation.
COSMO-SkyMed Second Generation constellation, fully operational in January 2021, represents the new Polar Star of the radar satellites. It is the follow-up system of the COSMO-SkyMed constellation and guarantees a significant improvement in terms of performance, image quality, interoperability and efficiency of services.
