COSMO-SkyMed Second Generation (CSG), composed of two SAR satellites, is at the forefront of radar technology, and will ensure improvements and guarantee continuity with the First Generation COSMO-SkyMed (CSK) satellites, preserving the high quality and the highest precision features, both required for the interferometric activities. ESA offers access to worldwide COSMO-SkyMed Second Generation data (both archived and new acquisitions) via the TPM scheme. Read more
