COSMO-SkyMed is a four-spacecraft constellation, conceived by Agenzia Spaziale Italiana (ASI) and funded by the Italian Ministry of Research (MUR) and the Italian Ministry of Defense (MoD). Each of the four satellites is equipped with a SAR instrument and is capable of operating in all visibility conditions at high resolution and in real time. The overall objective of this program is global EO and the relevant data exploitation for the needs of the military community as well as for the civil (institutional, commercial) community. The ESA TPM collection is composed by the copy of products requested by ESA supported projects over their areas of interest around the world. The dataset regularly grows as ESA collects new products over the years. Read more
