We are delighted to have hosted the French Ambassador for Germany Anne-Marie Descôtes and members of the DGA (Direction Générale des Armements) at our EDRS Mission Operations Centre (MOC) here in Ottobrunn, Germany.
Secure broadband connectivity solutions
During the visit, discussion turned to the topic of vital Earth Observation imagery and its rapid availability to decision makers. In addition, we discussed the innovation potential for providing European citizens with secure broadband connectivity solutions – based on the leveraging of optical technologies.
Optical data relay service in Copernicus Program
Our guests were able to follow a live link session between a Sentinel satellite from the EU Copernicus program and our EDRS-C data relay satellite. In fact, with over 65,000 successful links since 2016, EDRS continues to be one of the operational cornerstones supporting the EU Copernicus program in fulfilling its mission objectives.
