Our future satellite programmes aim to continue the global satellite observational coverage for decades to come.
Full details on the next generations of geostationary, polar-orbiting and Copernicus satellites. Upcoming launches.
Meteosat Third Generation
Meteosat Third Generation (MTG) will see the launch of six new geostationary (imaging and sounding) satellites from 2021 onwards.
EUMETSAT Polar System - Second Generation
The EPS follow-on system (EPS-SG) will provide continuity of observations and respond to the needs of the users in the 2021–2040 time frame.
