GMES Master Competition - Best Service Challenge

In emergency situations it is necessary to provide a response as quickly as possible. When the type of emergency depends on the use of satellite data, it then becomes necessary to plan their acquisition, processing and distribution, having teams ready 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, to respond to this type of situation.

The Satellite Rapid Response System was created by CHELYS precisely with the intent of making satellite data available as quickly as possible, as images and value-added products.

The constellation of satellites known as GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security) that will be launched starting in 2013, thanks to low revisiting times and the planning of the whole mission already present on board the satellite, will allow monitoring of our planet as never seen before.

SRRS is participating in the GMES Masters Competition in the Best Service Challenge. You can visit SRRS at the following link:

If you consider this type of service useful, if you like it, if you would like to continue using it with new data that will be made available by GMES, then vote for the service at the following link:

It is also important to note that although SRRS is participating in the Emergency Response category, it actually has a much wider range of applications, such as Ocean, Land or Climate Change.

If you have any thoughts regarding the service or ideas on ways to improve it, please leave us a comment.
