Environment & climate monitoring
Worldwide tracking and environmental monitoring by satellite
The international community is aware that the keychallenges are sustainable development, good stewardship of freshwater resources and measures to reduce global warming. It is implementing precautionary measures for environmental management and encouraging environmentally responsible behaviour.
Right from the outset in 1986, CLS has been supporting policy-makers responsible for environmental conservation and sustainable development. CLS offers integrated solutions based on the latest satellite technologies (equipment, services and expertise). They are born from 30 years of close cooperation with scientists investigating and protecting our planet. They provide vast quantities of data on animals, the ocean, inland waters, ice and the climate.
These satellite services and tools offer the community solutions for:
PRESERVING HIGHLY MIGRATORY SPECIES
Full solutions for tracking, collecting, processing and cross-referencing data, and for modelling ecosystems.
WATER RESOURCE MONITORING
Solutions for observing water networks, including water level, surface area, volume, forecasting the rise in levels, or observing subsidence in river deltas and the intrusion of saltwater.
Solutions for land management: geographical data based on satellite and airborne platforms (aircraft and drones) but also in situ measurements.
SUSTAINABLE LIVESTOCK MANAGEMENT
CLS and ES-PAS, its Russian subsidiary, have created SISMA, a combination of satellite tracking, Earth Observation and other space systems to support herding in Russia.
SISMA provides tools to collect data and provide reindeer observations, including habitat and conditions. When injected in the SISMA Data Factory, these data are transformed into actionable intelligence to support sustainable management tailored to the needs of each stakeholder.
