The vision of ESA Business Applications is to improve the lives of people on Earth through Space. We make this possible by enabling and supporting businesses in the short-term commercialisation and application of Space data and technology for everyday services.

In order to achieve this, the following objectives have been defined for ESA Business Applications activities:

  • Promotion of space applications to a wider range of users, especially those who are not aware of the benefits that space technologies can bring to them
  • Development of new operational services for these users, involving a broader participation by actors on both the demand and supply sides
  • Utilisation of one or more existing space-assets such as
    • Satellite Communications
    • Earth Observation
    • Satellite Navigation
    • Human Spaceflight technologies
    • and others

Leading to a better exploitation of existing space capacity and know-how together with a better understanding of how they should evolve to meet user requirements

  • Cross-fertilisation across disciplines (e.g. impact of Climate on Health, on Energy, on Transport, etc…) together with the development of a consistent approach across our initiatives, to maximise their efficient and cost- effective implementation
