A significant leap in Earth Observation technology

In a remarkable stride towards advancing Earth Earth Observation (EO) technology, the European Space Agency (ESA) embarks on the CIMR L2PAD project, scheduled to span four years from 2023 to 2027. The primary objective of this project is the development of a Level-2 ground prototype processor for the forthcoming Copernicus Imaging Microwave Radiometer (CIMR) satellite, set for launch in the late 2020s. The prototype processor will pave the way for the scientific and operational exploitation of the data acquired by the CIMR satellite.
