20 May 2019
ESA and Arianespace have signed a contract that secure the SEOSAT–Ingenio Earth observation satellite's ride into orbit next year on a Vega rocket from Europe's Spaceport in French Guiana.
SEOSAT, short for Spanish Earth observation satellite, will provide high-resolution multispectral images of Earth for applications such as cartography, monitoring land use, urban management, water management, risk management and security.
