Start-ups, companies, institutional players… You are all welcome!

Our teams are at your service to pinpoint your needs, facilitate your access to space technologies such as geolocation and telecommunications or satellite data such as imagery, and help you integrate them into your projects. Come and meet us and find out how you can benefit from all this!

Did you know? Many of these data are available in France and Europe free of charge. This is our core business, and we have plenty more good news to share!


PEPS is the French Sentinel 1, 2 data distribution platform of the Copernicus program with a free data access policy – open to everyone – and free of charge and with a guarantee of long-term continuity.

PEPS – Sentinel Products Exploitation Platform – is developed and enabled by CNES to meet national needs by facilitating access to data and their use by public and private users to stimulate innovation and develop the added value, a key factor in Copernicus success.

Currently, PEPS makes it possible to search, select, visualize and download data from the SAR radar of Sentinel-1A/B and data from the optical imager of Sentinel-2A/B with a low availability delay.


CODE-DE provides easy access to Copernicus and remote sensing data, a virtual working environment for processing these data and extensive information material and training to support users. Especially for authorities and their contractors, the CODE-DE Cloud offers contingents for free access to satellite data and to the efficient processing environment.


6 videos and 11 case studies give you an easy access to the experience of European public and private organisations using Copernicus data to improve their work in a number of sectors, ranging from environmental protection to cultural heritage and urban planning, and from energy access to flood management and sailing.


Pioneering public authorities, agencies and SMEs from across Europe share their hands-on experience, to inspire their peers to follow suit. It is not about the technology; it is about how end users make it work for them. Over the years this work has resulted in Europe’s largest database of users’ testimonials on operational satellite services.


As part of its activities around uses, IRISPACE has developed the Copernicus Regional platform which aims to initiate and strengthen the uses of satellite data in conjunction with potential end-users and application providers.


In the framework of the PROTECT project, it has been developed a Community Management Platform for public authorities. In the E-library, public authorities can find free materials about climate change mitigation and adaptation, climate services, and Earth Observation, among others. To access these materials, users have to sign up to the platform.


This action is supported by the European Union’s Caroline Herschel Framework Partnership Agreement on Copernicus User Uptake (FPCUP) under grant agreement No FPA 275/G/GRO/COPE/17/10042, 2021-2-13, Fostering the uptake of Copernicus by Local and Regional Authorities through user engagement and sharing of transnational experiences, SGA#20. The action is overseen by CNES in the frame of the “Connect-by-CNES” programme.
