In the UK, our operations activities are focused on the provision of Earth Observation and Climate services. These include data provision, but also the analysis of the quality of the data and wider information services. This is very important, since these information products are reaching a huge global community and our expertise is trusted by organisations such as the European Space Agency and the European Commission to ensure their quality and fitness-for-purpose.
Telespazio UK heads a consortium that provides the current operational service to monitor the quality of Earth Observation instrument data from ESA satellites and selected third party missions.
As part of the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S), Telespazio UK established and operated an important operational service which was responsible for the brokering and generation of gridded Sea Surface Temperature (SST) Climate Data Records for C3S users.
Telespazio UK is the prime contractor for the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts’s (ECMWF) Evaluation and Quality Control (EQC) for Sectoral Information Systems (SIS) project, which has the responsibility of evaluating the fitness-for-purpose, reliability, user relevance and quality of the SIS contracts within the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S).
