Prior to the launch of the EnMAP mission, the DLR Space Administration on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economics and Technology has set up a funding programme to prepare data exploitation and application development for the mission. It is taking account of the fact that EnMAP will deliver a new level of quality of space borne imaging spectroscopy data that never has been reached before. The funding programme includes:

  • algorithm development for essential ecosystem parameters
  • application development for a wide range of applications
  • summer schools for young scientists and
  • airborne campaigns to acquire test data for EnMAP simulations

Since 2010 two national calls have been announced by the DLR Space Administration. The main objective of the first call in 2010 was to support the development of advanced methods and algorithms for EnMAP data analysis with the focus of spatial scales (from field to spaceborne). The following list of projects gives an overview about topic, objectives and first results of the running projects (2011-2013).

In spring 2013, the second call has been announced. This call focusses on the development of methods and new data products exploiting the synergistic use of ESA’s Sentinel fleet and national missions (TerraSAR-X, Tandem-X and RapidEye). The submitted proposals are currently under review, the selected projects are foreseen for a start in 2014.
