SPOT 6 & SPOT 7: Turkey Steps up Collaboration with Astrium Services

Date: Issue 38 - December 2012

Astrium Services and Istanbul Technical University (ITU) signed two agreements in October 2012 to develop high-resolution and large-area coverage services in Turkey, notably for agriculture. The agreements cover a SPOT New Generation receiving station and reception of data from SPOT 6 and SPOT 7, as well as an extension for SPOT 5 data. New SPOT 6, SPOT 7 and Pléiades receiving stations are set to further shorten image data delivery times, getting data into the hands of users faster than ever before.

SPOT 6 and SPOT 7 data will be used for Turkish agricultural and environmental programmes
