“This initiative of the LSA is just a first step to facilitate access to space data with the aim to stimulate new services provided by Luxembourg as a hub for commercial space in Europe”, Marc Serres explains.
The goal of the LSA Data Center is to promote the development of products and services which rely on accurate Earth Observation data that are constantly updated.
The detailed optical and radar imaging data has many possible uses, including the management of the environment, understanding and mitigation of the effects of climate change and ensuring civil security.
Free and open access
Many sectors are potentially interested: environment, maritime, meteorology, agriculture, mobility, aviation and health. Those information are provided on a full, free and open access basis.
The LSA Data Center is fully consistent with the objectives of the Ministry of the Economy to support the further emergence of a trusted data-driven economy in Luxembourg and accelerate the digital transformation of its strategic sectors to which the space industry belongs.
