Friedrichshafen, Germany – 24 July 2013. Astrium Services is supporting the Copernicus Masters 2013 program through the announcement of the Radar Challenge focusing on the use of high-resolution radar satellite data. This challenge invites the submission of truly innovative ideas building on the unique features of TerraSAR-X data and offering a clear benefit e.g. for the environment, security, or specific industries.

The Copernicus Masters (European Earth Monitoring Competition) is rewarding innovative solutions for business and society based on Earth observation data. With its Radar Challenge, Astrium Services is encouraging the development of innovative and market-oriented products and applications based on TerraSAR-X radar satellite data. Thanks to its unique accuracy and data quality, TerraSAR-X has already had a major impact on the development of new and enhanced SAR-applications. But there is without doubt scope for further innovations exploiting the full potential of this type of data.

Participants - whether it be students, entrepreneurs, developers, or SMEs - are invited to submit their innovative approaches until 15 September 2013 through the Copernicus Masters website.

The winner of this challenge will be announced in an Award Ceremony on 5 November 2013 in Munich and will receive a data package (radar and/or optical satellite data) worth EUR 25,000 and operational support to concretize his idea
