Origins of Landsat-Sentinel Discussions

In 2005, the US and EU agreed to enhance Transatlantic Economic Integration and Growth.

“Encourage collaboration on long-term basic research within the context of the U.S.-EU Science and Technology agreement, and develop exchanges of good practices concerning the policies needed to support science and innovation; (and)

Promote cooperation using civilian space-based technologies for sustainable development, science/exploration, and deepening the knowledge society.”

Since 2006, a yearly US-EU Space Policy Dialogue has convened.

US and European (multinational) space agencies

Trade, regulation, systems technology, and national programs

Earth Observation (GMES-IEOS)

Landsat-Sentinel Collaboration

Two track dialogue
Two-Track Dialogue

TRACK ONE – USGS-EU collaboration in Operational Land Imaging and related Science & Applications

To be formalized through Implementation Agreement (Addendum) to the US-EU Science &Technology Agreement

Will encompass European national space agencies, science institutions, and industries

Will be topic-oriented – eg, Climate and Environment

TRACK TWO – USGS-ESA collaboration (with NASA participation) between the Landsat 8 – Sentinel 2 missions

Technical Teams convened

Letters of Intent exchanged

Forerunner of future broad agreement

Next us eu space policy dialogue
Next US-EU Space Policy Dialogue

Will convene in October 2009

Anticipates USGS-ESA Technical Progress Report

EU seeks a broader conversation

Earth Observation

Climate Change

Joint Security interests

In March 2009, the EU signaled readiness to fund joint space and science initiatives of common US-European interest

Operational Land Imaging

Sample Topics: Climate Change, Land Use/Land Change, Land Management, Operational Satellite Services

USGS-EU research collaboration in broader Earth science and applications topics also feasible
