On 24 October 2017, Philippe Brunet, Director for Space Policy and Research, Copernicus and defence matters at the European Commission, paid a visit to ESA’s mission control centre in Darmstadt, Germany.
During this visit, he was briefed by ESA managers including Rolf Densing, ESA Director of Operations and Head of ESOC, on the status of Sentinel flight operations and about ESA’s Space Situational Awareness (SSA) Programme.
Teams are operating five Sentinel satellites, which make up the core of the space component of the Europe’s Copernicus environmental monitoring programme.
The SSA Programme, based at ESOC, is supporting Europe’s independent utilisation of, and access to, space through the provision of timely and accurate information on the space environment, particularly on hazards to critical infrastructure in orbit and on the ground.
