MCGS presentation at Living Planet 2013 symposium*


Discover the presentation of MCGS (from 43') made during the Living Planet 2013 symposium at Edinburgh in September 2013.


MCGS was awarded by French government in August 2011 for 36 months activity, phased with the Sentinels mission planning.

The total budget is about 5M€ for R&D, prototyping, market analysis and training:

  • 37% of regional, national and European funds                        
  • 63% on partners’ own resources

Three processing platforms will be specified and developed in parallel during a first phase: sea surface radiometry, sea surface topography and wind/waves/current. Service demonstration and training will be organized during a second phase.
