5th Anniversary of the Copernicus SEA service

October 6 2021, marks the 5th anniversary of the Copernicus SEA service!

This represents a significant milestone for SatCen and the service itself.

The past five years have been sprinkled with achievements, challenges, and opportunities: we have been improving SEA service adapting to the heterogeneous and emerging needs of our users and increasing the Service capacity on a continuous basis.

We continued searching for innovative solutions and ideas, and we regularly shared training with our Users. We also expanded our offer by initiating pilot projects and collaborations through H2020 R&I projects for the long-term evolution of the SEA. Finally, we have shared our achievements by organising events and workshops.

The SEA service is intended to assist the EU and its Member States by improving their situational awareness through geospatial intelligence analysis. The achievements reached during these five years confirm the relevant role that SEA has in supporting our stakeholders in making informed decisions on a critical matter as the Union External Action is.

“We are confident that SatCen and the Copernicus SEA service will continue to be a valuable asset in support of even more EU policies, strategic ambitions and priorities” – said Alessandra Ussorio, responsible for the SEA service.

“SatCen cooperation with Commission enables maximising synergies and complementarities between SatCen mission and Copernicus objectives. It provides an improved and integrated response to user needs”– concluded Denis Bruckert, Head of the Copernicus Unit
