About us

EUMETSAT is the European operational satellite agency for monitoring weather, climate and the environment from space

EUMETSAT is an intergovernmental organisation based in Darmstadt, Germany, with 30 member states. EUMETSAT operates the geostationary satellites Meteosat -10, and -11 over Europe and Africa, and Meteosat-9 over the Indian Ocean.

It also operates two Metop polar-orbiting satellites as part of the Initial Joint Polar System (IJPS) shared with the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

In addition, EUMETSAT is a partner in the cooperative sea level monitoring Jason missions (Jason-3 and Jason-CS/Sentinel-6) involving Europe and the United States.

The data and products from EUMETSAT's satellites are vital to weather forecasting and make a significant contribution to the monitoring of the environment and climate change.

The European Union has entrusted EUMETSAT with exploiting the four Sentinel missions of the Copernicus space component dedicated to the monitoring of atmosphere, ocean and climate on its behalf. EUMETSAT carries out these tasks in cooperation with ESA and already exploits the Sentinel-3 and Sentinel-6 marine missions.

EUMETSAT has established cooperation with Earth observation satellite operators in Europe, China, India, Japan, South Korea and the United States. The cooperation with Russia was suspended in March 2022.
