Data from beyond the cloud shared via Interoute

10 April 2017

Spacemetric will use Interoute’s cloud to support its data storage and distribution needs.

The secure solution will be integrated with the web-based Swedish Earth data Access (SWEA) platform developed by Spacemetric on behalf of the Swedish National Space Board.

The ESA’s Copernicus mission is based on two identical satellites – Sentinel-2A and Sentinel-2B i – which cover all land surfaces, large islands, inland and coastal waters every five days. Working in unison, the two satellites optimise global coverage and data delivery for numerous applications.

The school teachers will use tech similar to that being used by the Metropolitan Police.
