Ireland Signs Up To Copernicus Sentinel Agreement
ESA and Enterprise Ireland have signed an agreement that gives Ireland access to data from the Copernicus Sentinel satellites and helps Ireland to exploit these data to benefit their country.
The agreement was signed on 13 October at ESA in the Netherlands just before the Copernicus Sentinel-5P launch event.
Sentinel-5P, which will monitor air pollution, blasted off at 09:27 GMT from Russia. It joins five other Sentinel satellites in orbit that are already delivering a wealth of complementary imagery and data for the Copernicus services.
