Our environment is multi-faceted and all of us are affected by it. Space Applications Services researches and develops information systems solutions that allow straightforward access to complex environment data, no matter when it was acquired, simplifying enormously the effort needed to find specific data sets and transforming this data into the needed products. Key aspects are long time series solar data, space weather, long term preservation of valuable data and accessing the vast amounts of Earth Observation data. Our technology is widely applicable. Initial applications are to the European Commission's Copernicus Programme (previously known as Global Monitoring for Environment and Security GMES) and to the Long Term Data Preservation (LTDP) of observations of the Sun.
