May 16th, European Space Agency opened Estonian satellite data center in Tallinn
"Estonia is a growing space nation and a full member of the European Space Agency. ESTHub is a key partnership that helps ESA to use big data obtained from space to enable rapid development of technologies and make them accessible across Europe," said the director general of ESA, Jan Worner. There are several users of satellite data in Estonia already and business operators, too, have been waiting for the new data center, Urmas Kõlli, manager of the Estonian company Datel, said.
"AS Datel uses remote sensing data collected by the Sentinel-1 satellite and disseminated via ESTHub, among others, in the new service directed to the global market titled Sille. Via ESTHub we can get data about Estonia and the nearby region especially fast, which enables us to offer a service of particularly high quality," Kõlli said.
