Brochure: Earth Observation – Discovering, surveying and understanding our planet (2013)
Life today is much more about knowledge than it was a generation ago. Global change, a sustainable development of our habitats, an efficient use of resources, securing our mobility and our competitive position in the world of advanced technology, the need to deal with crises and to minimise the risks imposed on us by natural, technological, and criminal hazards, all this puts us before huge challenges. Earth observation by satellite can help us stay on top of these tasks. Earth observation has become a strategic benefit for policymakers, industry, and citizens.
