IASI – new sensor onboard the MetOp/A Satellite
Numerical weather prediction (NWP) which is the backbone of modern weather forecasting needs daily accurate updates of earth surface parameters. One of these parameters is sea ice. The variations in sea ice impact the ocean-atmosphere fluxes of heat, momentum and water, and thereby the development of both local as well as large scale weather systems.

Data receiving via Kongsberg Satellite Services network
GOCE is introduced to the international media
As the ﬁrst step to fulﬁl the vision about visiting the Moon again, and possibly build a base there, the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) is now in the ﬁnal stages of building the spacecraft for the ﬁrst mission, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter
Improving the understanding of high latitude ocean circulation
a guarantee for a continuous Earth observation data set
When RADARSAT-2 is launched in the near future the continuous flow of data from the SAR sensors on the satellites will be prolonged for several years. Continuous data flow is very important in order to pay attention to evolution in the nature, such as the climate, ice and snow covering etc. The Nordic countries, like all countries at high latitudes have greatly benefited from this type of satellites; thus we look forward to the operative phase with great expectations.
