Indra has closed an agreement with the European Space Agency to host the main processing and archiving centre for the images of the Sentinel-2 mission at its facilities and take charge of its operation.
This contract will strengthen the consultancy and technology multinational's position as an operator of Earth observation image processing centres, consolidating its portfolio of solutions and services in the space sector.
The company is the leader in the development of ground segments in Spain and has vast experience in Earth observation systems and applications.
The Sentinel satellites form part of the Copernicus Earth Observation Programme, previously known as GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security), which will equip Europe with its own Earth observation capacity to serve the needs of its users.
Indra is one of the world's largest consultancy and technology multinationals, a leader in Europe and Latin America and is expanding in other emerging economies. Innovation is the cornerstone of its business, which is highly focussed on the customer and on sustainability.
