Skytek awarded contract with the European Space Agency

Skytek has been awarded a further contract for the evolution and maintenance of ESA Atmospheric Validation Data Centre (EVDC). EVDC is a central repository for archiving and exchange of correlative data for validation of atmospheric composition products from satellite platforms.

Skytek has been involved in the development of EVDC platform since 2016, substantially contributing to its evolution. The platform currently gives users access to over million correlative data products and the full archive of Sentinel 5P and Aeolus mission data.

By providing the processing tools and infrastructure Skytek supports European Space Agency and teams of scientists involved in calibration and validation of satellite data.

In the upcoming phase of development Skytek will expand the data processing capabilities and integrate the upcoming EarthCare mission data.

About EVDC

EVDC is a central, long-term repository in Europe for archiving and exchange of correlative data for validation of atmospheric composition products from satellite platforms. It builds on the previous ENVISAT Cal/Val database system in operation at NILU since the early 2000s, and provides tools for extraction, conversion and archival of a large amount of EO data. The objective of the EVDC is to provide an online information system that supports users in managing and exploiting campaign datasets for Earth Observation missions and applications.
