Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales,CNES : a “R&D Space agency”

  • CNES is a R&D space agency. Its vocation is two folds:

    • It is the French national space agency in charge to propose and to implement the French national space programme

    • It is also at the same time the French national technical center in charge of space technologies development in order to give access to space to all communities of users which could need it, researchers as well as other groups dealing with application programmes.

  • CNES is a member of the European Space Agency (ESA)

Cnes commitment to geo geoss
CNES commitment to GEO/GEOSS

  • CNES works with other space agencies, through CEOS in particular, to set up the space component of the GEOSS 10-year implementation plan

  • CNES is an active member of CEOS Education group (Gérard Bégni)

  • WP 2007-2009, CNES participates to 11 tasks in Architecture, Biodiversity, Data management, Disasters, Health, Water

  • WP 2007-2009 : NO participation on CB tasks

Thematic centres concept objectives
Thematic Centres: Concept & Objectives

  • CNES, together with other French research organizations, have developped the concept of «thematic centers» based on the need to give an easy access to the different components of an Observing system: space component, in-situ networks & set of numerical models to be used to derive the pertinent information or parameters from the measurements.

  • To Implement a link between primary archive centres and user communities

    • to design and improve algorithms for deriving geophysical parameters using mono- or multi-source data space (mono- or multi-sensors, in situ, airborne, ...)

    • to process & archive elaborated geophysical products or indicators

    • to distribute data, products and softwares

    • to allow unique access to long time series

    • to offer user support services

  • Open to international user communities

Kalideos the concept & atmospheric water

KALIDEOS, the concept

  • to support and stimulate R&D in Remote Sensing

    by collecting over a small amount of geographic areas

    • As many images as possible (past, present and future…),

    • From different sensors (optial, radar, hyperspectral...),

    • with the best quality as possible,

    • Superimposable and Intercomparable (geometry & radiometry),

    • Documented, (different versions and processing information)

    • Including other data (maps, in-situ measurements,GPS,…, statistics,...)

    • Free access for scientist (Research and Education), excluding commercial developments

    • ADAM(Roumania), Assimilation of spatial Data into Agronomic Models

    • Reunion Island (IO), multi-thematic DB

    • Arcachon Basin, (AO), Integrated Coastal Zone Management

To Provide with temporal series of multi-sensors data superimposable and intercalibrated

Multi-Thematic research programs & atmospheric water

in Reunion Island

  • - Volcano monitoring and eruptive phenomena comprehension (IPGP : Earth physics research institute)

  • - Sugar cane growth modelling and agricultural decision-making (CIRAD : agronomy research)

  • - Coastal line & Landslides monitoring; Erosion impact assessment (BRGM : geological research office)

Kalideos a success story
Kalideos : A « success story » & atmospheric water

  • Since 2000, more and more worldwide access demands, sites still active and enriched with new sensors data: Formosat, TerraSarX, CSK,…,according to scientists requests

  • From thematic to methodology : intercalibration, atmospheric corrections, data mining & change detection including temporal evolution criterion , multi- resolution decomposition,…,

  • Operational services developed :

    • sucrette dedicated to the sugar cane industry

  • Decision from Reunion Island local gouvernment to fund a satellite reception station in 2006 (operational in 2009)
