Workshop 2017 – Recent Advances in the Scientific Preparation of the EnMAP Mission

München, Frauenkirche

The next EnMAP Workshop titled “Recent Advances in the Scientific Preparation of the EnMAP Mission” will be held from September 6 to 8 at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich, Germany. The workshop includes scientific presentations of PhD students funded within the “EnMAP Data Exploitation and Application Development Program”, hands-on exercises and guided tours.

EnMAP Ground Segment Delta CDR successful

The EnMAP Ground Segment has finished its Delta Critical Design Review (CDR) successfully on July 01, 2016. In this Delta CDR, design changes caused by advancements in multi mission facilities at GSOC and DFD used by EnMAP, evolution of the used software, the availability of improved algorithms (e.g. an improved atmospheric correction), and the enhancement of the design to meet new requirements like the INSPIRE conformity and sun-glint avoidance were reviewed. Also further technical developments in the Space Segment could be taken into account. In the Review Board, experts from ESA, OHB, GFZ, other satellite projects at DLR and DLR Space Administration were involved. Thus, the EnMAP Ground Segment now finally starts with phase D of the project, where the proposed design will be implemented and afterwards verified and validated.

New EnMAP Science Plan released

After the first release of the EnMAP Science Plan in 2012, an updated version is available now after a thorough revision of the document. The scope of the Science Plan is to provide an overview of the EnMAP mission including a description of system and data products, potential contributions to major fields of application, and scientific pre-launch activities. The document primarily addresses scientists and funding institutions, but may also be of interest for environmental stakeholders and governmental bodies. It is conceived to be a living document that will be updated throughout the entire mission.
