MCGS goal: provide tailored marine information based on the future GMES Sentinel satellites for

  • Operational monitoring and support

The Marine Collaborative Ground Segment addresses the need of ESA/EU to build up collaborative data processing centers within the GMES Program for the provision of tailored services to local and national, public and private entities involved in marine activities.

The prototyping of the Marine Collaborative Ground Segment is co-funded by private & public partners and by the French Government (Fonds Unique Interministériel), the local authorities of French regions (Bretagne & Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur) and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), under support of the French Space Agency (CNES).
