Environement 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.

CLS will put its 30 years of experience in monitoring the oceans to work in support of sustainable management of freshwater resources.


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:


Full solutions for tracking, collecting, processing and cross-referencing data, and for modelling ecosystems.

Argos system

Argos & Iridum air time services and hardware


Some hundred ocean specialists provide daily data to the international scientific community for measuring, observing, modelling and forecasting sea states both on the surface and subsurface.

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.

Calculating the mean sea level, observing ice formations, satellite tracking of animals sensitive to global warming, etc.
