Ms. Hripsime Matevosyan’s talk will focus on some of the systems engineering aspects of the Copernicus program, which constitutes the European component of the Global Earth Observing Systems of Systems (GEOSS). Copernicus is a joint effort of the European Space Agency, the European Commission and the European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT).
The speaker will present some of the findings from a paper she co-authored, which identifies the key elements of the value chain of the European earth observation (EO) infrastructure. The underlying research was conducted in the frame of an EU Horizon 2020 grant project called Operational Network of Individual Observation Nodes (ONION). The paper builds a comprehensive knowledge base of those key elements. A quantitative methodology was developed to analyze and select promising use cases that the existing Copernicus infrastructure does not satisfy. She will present the quantitative results of the methodology and draw conclusions for the most promising evolution paths of the Copernicus infrastructure, including marine weather forecast, arctic sea ice monitoring, agricultural hydrological stress, and pressure exerted by fishery and aquaculture.
