EJR-Quartz has signed a contract to supply editorial services for the EU Copernicus Sentinel User Handbook.
Under the auspices of the EU’s Copernicus programme, the Sentinel User Handbook has been developed and maintained by ESA to provide information for expert users, Copernicus Sentinel data users and the wider Earth observation community.
The Copernicus programme is intended to set up a wide range of Earth observation capabilities. Users will be provided with information through services dedicated to systematic monitoring and forecasting of the state of the Earth’s subsystems. The European Commission has developed six themes: land monitoring, marine environment monitoring, emergency management, security and climate change.
EJR-Quartz will support mission managers and technical teams in highlighting results and EO applications under each of these themes.
The kickoff meeting took place Friday 9 September at ESA ESRIN, with ESA and EC technical officers.
