Mission: CEOS ensures international coordination of civil space-based Earth observation programs and promotes exchange of data to optimize societal benefit and inform decision making for securing a prosperous and sustainable future for humankind.

CEOS – 55 Agencies operating 131 satellites!

CEOS Agencies (31 Members & 24 Associates) from all over the world are responsible for:

  • Providing leadership within CEOS
