The satellites targeted at studying and observing the Earth from Space play an increasingly relevant role: their applications include the study of the environment, the prediction and monitoring of natural disasters, a more rational exploitation of natural resources.

Thanks to satellites, today we are able to monitor the health of our planet as never before. The Cosmo-SkyMed radar constellation is a unique example at global level, same as the Prisma hyperspectral in Europe.
