EO Technology Strategy

The UK Space Agency 10-year vision is for the UK to become the world leader in new EO technologies.

The UK Earth Observation (EO) Technology Strategy will support the UK Space Agency in future investment decisions in EO technology, its influencing and convening power. It will help to ensure that the UK receives best return from the national and bilateral programmes, and from the investment in ESA and other European EO programmes. This will be achieved through the selection and development of technologies of greatest relevance to future EO missions, both ESA and non-ESA, including national, European and global commercial opportunities. It also seeks to ensure continuing technological capability in areas of importance to the UK and support the development of new and innovative ideas.

This EO Technology Strategy outlines how the UK will develop innovative Earth Observation technology to drive growth, science leadership and societal benefits. 

The strategy is implemented through UK government actions, and through the Centre for EO Instrumentation technology development and added value programmes.  It was prepared by CEOI together with the UK Space Agency.
