Projects that receive funding

European Space Agency (ESA) Across UKSA – 122.6 million pounds sterling

the futureESAThe Earth Observation R&D program lays the foundation for new technologies and important ideas in Earth Observation. By investing in this program, the UK EO The sector will have impact and access to opportunities across the whole EO The value chain, including the construction and testing of new satellites. This could also help secure leadership roles in the UK in the future EO missions.

the facts – Provides climate data 10 times more accurate than is currently possible and will be a “standard laboratory in space”, setting the reference as the “gold standard” for climate measurements. Our investment in TRUTHS will enable UK industry to deliver key components of the programme.

Aeolus -2 Building the next generation EO A mission to measure wind speed in the atmosphere directly from space. The data generated from this mission will be used by meteorological agencies around the world (including the UK Met Office) to improve forecasts and better prepare countries for high-impact weather events as well as providing valuable climate data.

InCubed-2 This program funds the development of innovative commercial products and services that generate and exploit the value of Earth observation imagery and datasets. By investing, UK academics and industry can apply for funding to develop exciting projects from satellite construction to terrestrial applications or to develop new EO business models.

Earth digital twins – Creates a digital representation of the entire Earth’s environment that is informed in near real time EO data. This empowers the whole of the United Kingdom EO The community (industry, academia and government) to engage in activity from digital infrastructure development and data engineering, to running national scenarios for better decision making. These two “digital twins” EO data with Amnesty International and modeling techniques to simulate scenarios so that we can understand the impacts that different interventions might have on complex global systems.

british space agency (UKSA) – 15 million pounds sterling

EO technology programme Innovative development EO Satellite devices to keep the UK at the forefront EO ability and experience. By jointly funding innovation with industry and academia, the program will help mature technologies to the level where they can shape satellite mission payloads or be part of viable commercial applications, supporting UK businesses to take advantage of future national and international opportunities.

natural environment research councilNERC) – 19.3 million pounds sterling

United kingdom EO Climate Information Service (UKEO-Commonwealth of Independent States) – You will produce new climate data, providing more accurate insights into the national and international impacts of the climate crisis and help steer the UK towards greater resilience to the impacts of climate change.

EO Data Center It will create a next-generation data platform to give the UK a single gateway to accessing and processing satellite data to develop new applications and environmental insights. The EO Data Hub is a consortium project between Executive Directorand RAL Space, NPL and the satellite applications catapult that will deliver them, with input from industry and government. It represents a new UK capability that provides access to diverse satellite datasets for the benefit of UK industry, academia and government, particularly for applications in climate, finance, carbon services and agriculture.

sense Doctoral Training Program Center for EO – Satellite data in environmental sciences (senseThe Center will train the next generation of Earth Observation leaders, with the experience and knowledge to address Earth system challenges. This funding will enable sense CDT To support an additional group of up to 20 PhD scholarships. This is vital to sustaining the highly skilled workforce that the UK needs to advance the UK EO sector in the future.

Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) – 14.73 million pounds sterling

United kingdom EO Marine and Climate Mission Development Program – Will provide early readiness to bring together UK requirements, research and industry strengths, and space technologies to build and operate a UK-led Earth Observing System in support of combating climate change and achieving Net Zero. Working with government, academia, industry and international partners, the project will capture and translate new climate and environmental challenges for the UK and its surrounding waters into a range of mission technologies and concepts, which will help the UK prepare for future challenges.

Small satellite calibration facility – It will establish a national center for calibration and testing of small, cubic and nano-satellites, which will reduce risks for British companies and help overcome the barriers that frequently prevent new space technologies from launching satellites. Aims to support small businesses, startups and Small and medium-sized companiesIt will give UK companies a competitive advantage in international markets and provide them with improved data quality and reliability EO missions.

United Kingdom / Australia EO AgroClimate software – You will fund projects that use EO Data and technology to meet the national and global challenge of improving agricultural productivity in a changing climate. The projects will bring together the best researchers from the UK and Australia to develop EO Solutions to improve and control agricultural productivity and climate change.

Surface temperature gauge grid It will build and deploy a network of radiometers designed to measure surface temperatures with very high accuracy that will be used to validate data produced by infrared remote sensing satellite towers. This will improve the accuracy of the resulting data, which directly affects weather and climate forecasts.

Met Office – £11.73 million

Transatlantic Data Science Academy – An international training and skills exchange program that will provide continuing professional development opportunities between the United Kingdom and the United States of America. The Academy will also support the training of students and the exchange of experts through courses and learning opportunities EO Sector skills, such as data processing and data analysis. This is vital to maintaining the highly skilled workforce needed to advance the UK EO sector in the future.

TWInning capability for natural environment – (TWINE) You will support the use of digital twins in the natural environment, which will help realize the value of this transformative platform technology to address challenges such as climate change, biodiversity loss and air quality. This new national capability enables the UK to use machine learning and Amnesty International Ways to promote use EO Data and testing the effects of different scenarios and interventions (policy, business and investment, regulation, etc.) to help make better decisions about improving our environment.

UK Marine and Climatological Advisory Service (MCAS) – You will develop satellite-enabled products to improve UK national weather, air quality and marine forecasts. It will enable better climate data models that will help the UK become resilient to climate risks and will develop new satellite-assisted applications that create new services and jobs.

Innovate UK – 4.21 million pounds sterling

innovation in EO – You will fund a variety of industrial research projects focused on the uses of EO for new commercial applications. These projects will take the risk out of developing new technology and applications that will grow business in the UK.
