The European Union's Sentinel satellites, developed and operated by ESA, will play a critical role in Australia's efforts to manage its vast land and marine environment.

These Copernicus satellites will help protect Australia's unique environmental assets and support sustainable development of its extensive and valuable natural resources.

Their data will feed applications that support important national and regional priorities including: coral reef monitoring on the Great Barrier Reef, vegetation and crop monitoring for productive agricultural areas, water resource assessments and development of the blue economy.
