The UK Space Agency is seeking to compile a catalogue of EO mission and instrument concepts, to allow opportunistic or strategic support for missions (please note that there is no dedicated funding for national EO missions at the present time).

The scope of the current activity is to build a list of potential EO missions or instruments that are near flight-ready. Such missions/instruments could for instance be under a national programme, a bilateral mission or through an ESA or other institutional programme.

The end users could be commercial, public policy or academic.

Please click the button below to download the questionnaire which will provide basic information about an EO mission or instrument and its strength in relation to 5 defined criteria.

Completed questionnaires should be emailed to the UK Space Agency EO Team before 17.00 on Wednesday 4th April 2018.

The submissions will be assessed by a Panel of independent experts and the results presented to the next meeting of the EO Advisory Committee in May.  Richard Lowe (ad hominem member of the EOAC) has been appointed as Chair of the Panel.  Further appointments to the Panel will be made by the UK Space Agency in a separate parallel process.

The CEOI Leadership Team will support the UK Space Agency in collating the information and preparing documents for the Panel.

All information will be held in confidence by the UK Space Agency, CEOI and the Panel in line with the UK Space Agency confidentiality rules.

Further information on this Capability Review and the questionnaire is contained in the Guidelines document (which can also be downloaded below) and in the UK Space Agency presentation made at the EO Future Missions Workshop.
