A new entity has launched that aims to improve the monitoring and forecasting of extreme weather and natural disasters with a constellation of 40 satellites.

Orbital Micro Systems (OMS) and Edinburgh University are both involved in the newly formed International Centre for Earth Data (ICED), which will gather, process and deliver weather information from public and commercial sources for researchers, governments and commercial enterprises around the world.
