The FireBird mission is a two-satellite constellation mission. The primary mission goal is the monitoring of high temperature events on Earth (e.g. forest fires) through high-resolution IR-sensors.
EDRS, the European Data Relay System, is developed and implemented under a Public Private Partnership between ESA and Astrium. The planned EDRS is based on two geostationary 'distributor' satellites that, because of their fixed position in space, will be able to receive high-speed communications from low-flying Earth observation satellites and relay them to Earth without any delay.
Eu:CROPIS (Euglena: Closed Regenerative Organic food Production In Space) is a satellite mission scheduled for launch in 2016. Main payload are two greenhouses each as a pressurized closed loop system simulating the environmental conditions of the Moon or Mars and also on long duration missions. Numerous cameras and sensors will observe the growth of tomatoes in space.
The Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment-Follow-On (GRACE-FO) Mission is scheduled to launch in August 2017 and will continue the GRACE mission. The primary mission goal is to generate high-resolution models for the static time variable components of the Earth's gravity field.
DEOS - Deutsche Orbitale Servicing Mission
Die zukunftsweisende Mission DEOS, "Deutsche Orbitale Servicing Mission", ist eine Technologie-Demonstrations-Mission. Sie besteht aus zwei Satelliten, dem defekten Satelliten und einem Service-Satellit.
EnMAP - Environmental Mapping Program
EnMAP is a future German hyperspectral satellite mission with 232 spectral bands from 420 nm to 2450 nm and a ground resolution of 30 x 30 m² - a scientific „pathfinder“.
