Minimize Access to ESA Third Party Missions data by Copernicus users

For 35 years, ESA has been using its Earth Observation multi-mission ground systems to acquire process, archive and distribute data from satellites not owned or operated by ESA – the so-called Third Party Missions (TPMs), as part of ESA's mandatory activities.

The TPM data collections are distributed to the European User community under specific agreements with the owners or operators of such missions, respecting the data policy of each TPM operator, while supplying the data to the European user community under a harmonised TPM licence. Data are available under the free dataset policy and require only a fast registration.

If eligible for access, the TPM data is free of charge to the user.
