Satellite remote sensing data often is a crucial source of information for all phases of the disaster management cycle (prevention, anticipation, crisis and post-crisis). Especially during crisis situations the rapid provision of satellite imagery and geo-information products efficiently supports the coordination of civil protection and rescue teams quickly and across large areas.
In addition, satellite imagery contributes to a more efficient disaster management during prevention, anticipation and in post-crisis phases by providing responsible actors with key information.
To support Reactive Imagery needs, Airbus Defence and Space relies on data acquired by the full constellation of Optical & Radar operated satellites which provides:
- Impressive combined acquisition capacity
- Weather independent observation sensors
- High revisit frequency
- Huge imagery archive for dynamic vision
- High radiometric and geometric accuracy
