18 June 2019
The Chinese-French Oceanography Satellite (CFOSAT) was launched on 29 October last year, for the China National Space Administration (CNSA) and the Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (the French Space Agency, CNES).
Under an agreement signed today, EUMETSAT will distribute data from the satellite's payload to its 30 Member States and the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts in near-real time and perform additional processing of the data.
