cooperation with noaa on jps 1 3
Cooperation with NOAA on JPS (1/3)
  • Regular meetings of the technical and high-level working groups are held with NOAA to work towards an extended cooperation past IJPS and JTA
  • A concept paper has been drafted for negotiation of a JPS and is under approval by DB
  • Model is similar to that of IJPS and JTA
    • NOAA spacecraft operate in early morning and afternoon orbits
    • EUMETSAT spacecraft operates in mid-morning orbit
    • Exchange of instruments as far as practicable
    • Collaboration on developments for data exploitation
    • Exchange of data
  • Timeline
    • Draft JPS agreement finalised in Q4 2009
    • JPS agreement to EUMETSAT Council and US authorities at end of Phase A
recent council decisions relevant to post eps 1 2
Recent Council Decisions Relevant to Post-EPS (1/2)
  • The opportunity of flying Earth observation payloads on the Iridium-NEXT constellation of satellites should not be pursued
  • Adopted the initiating resolution on the preparation of a Jason follow-on programme, authorising the DG to prepare a full Jason2 follow-on optional programme proposal and a related declaration (to be adopted)
    • All 21 member states indicated their interest in participation
    • Funding scheme needs to be secured among partners before optional programme can be proposed
  • Adopted way forward for the implementation of GMES Sentinel 5 on Post-EPS
    • Consider S-5 as PEPS baseline in terms of design and development
    • Rely on ESA provided S-5 ground processor
    • Manage delta-development within an optimised approach for GS procurement
    • Have full control of the overall process up to GS level and end-to-end system verification and validation
    • Discuss with EU about the necessary funding to cover operations costs of S-5
recent council decisions relevant to post eps 2 2
Recent Council Decisions Relevant to Post-EPS (2/2)
  • With respect to the GMES long-term governance EUMETSAT should play the role of operational agency in the areas of
    • GMES Marine Core Service
    • GMES Atmosphere Service
    • The planned GMES Service for Climate Monitoring
  • During GMES pre-operations, access by the three GMES fast track services and two pilot services to EUMETSAT data will be granted free of charge
  • For the GMES S-3 development , a third party programme will be established
current activities
Current activities
  • ESA: 2nd industrial Phase 0 study for Post-EPS (Thales Alenia Space has been kicked off) in July 2008
  • Preliminary Assessment Review was held in June 2008
  • Mid Term Reviews to be held in December 2008 (Astrium)
  • and January 2009 (Thales)
  • Follow national studies
    • DLR: METimage, Phase A completed, Phase B started in September 2008
    • CNES: IASI follow-on, Phase 0 completed
objectives of preliminary assessment review par
Objectives of Preliminary Assessment Review (PAR)
  • “to decide on the observation missions to be retained for further study”
      • ref. to “potential for implementation within the anticipated budgetary constraints” (EUM/C/63/07/DOC/46)
    • It implies
    • a review of the preliminary assessment of the candidate missions, and its consistency with mission and programmatic requirements
    • It is an opportunity to
    • give recommendations on the execution of the industrial studies
par non objectives
PAR Non-Objectives
  • The PAR is NOT expected to anticipate:
    • Specific payload options (for those missions to be retained)
    • A space or ground segment configuration
  • Available elements are too preliminary, often and on purpose limited to a “baseline” or heritage concept for a rapid programmatic/cost assessment
  • Relevant concepts are to be established in the industrial studies managed by ESA
par non observation missions services
PAR: Non-Observation Missions/Services
  • Data Collection System (PARD, TBC)
  • Search & Rescue (PARD, TBC)
  • User Services (MRD):
    • Direct Data Broadcast
    • Near Real Time Data Distribution
    • Archiving and Retrieval
    • Reprocessing
    • User Support

Space and Ground Segment impact

Ground Segment impact

Not in scope of PAR

But system impact should be taken into account

Scope: Phase 0 Studies





Phase 0

par outcome missions to be retained in phase 0 studies
PAR Outcome – Missions to be Retained in Phase 0 Studies
  • Infrared Sounding Mission (IRS)
    • Atmospheric Chemistry requirements must not drive the instrument
  • Microwave Sounding Mission (MWS)
  • Visible/Infrared Imaging Mission (VII)
  • Scatterometry Mission (SCA)
  • Microwave Imaging Mission for Precipitation (MWI – Precipitation)
  • Radio Occultation Mission (RO)
