    Earth observation

    A new look at your world

    For a weather-independent data source, high-frequency revisits, very-high-resolution imagery or even all of the above in a single system – we can provide the right Earth observation satellite for every customer.

    Our innovative off-the-shelf solutions and highly efficient production processes enable a record-time delivery of highly sophisticated satellites. What’s more – we also have a substantial expertise in ground segment infrastructure, technology and operations as well as data management and imagery exploitation.

    No. 1 supplier to European institutions
    30 years of in-orbit time since 1986
    No in-orbit failure
    Prime contractor
    for over 70 earth observation satellites

    More than thirty years of successful earth observation

    Since the launch of its first Earth observation satellite in 1986, Airbus Defence and Space has successfully built and delivered almost 50 Earth observation satellite systems, accumulating over 30 years of in-orbit operation. Not a single one of these missions has ever failed in orbit.

    Today, many of our satellites are in operation well beyond their originally scheduled lifetime.

    At the same time, several new satellites as well as numerous payloads for customers around the globe are currently in construction in our facilities.
