    2. CNESMAG 84- Biodiversity: building resilience

      Publishing date:

      May 29, 2020

      For close on 20 years, the space community has strived to document, map and observe biodiversity. Satellites are watching over forests, measuring soil moisture, tracking habitats and hundreds of species to analyse their behaviour. New hyperspectral technologies are set to deliver deeper insights into forest and cropland biomass and the carbon sinks they represent. The time for alerting is behind us; now is the time for action, and CNES is gearing up to play its part in building a new resilience for the future.

    11. ANGELS, France's first industrial nanosatellite, extends the scope of space IoT

      Publishing date:

      October 13, 2020

      Five times more powerful and 10 times smaller than its predecessors, ANGELS has been designed to address the current challenges of New Space: miniaturization, scaled-up performance and very low consumption. This technological wonder is opening up its services to current users and offering IoT players premium access to this new connectivity. ANGELS gives a first taste of the opportunities provided by Kinéis, the first constellation of European nanosatellites dedicated to IoT. Carrying a state-of-the-art ARGOS instrument, ANGELS is the operationnal proof of the success of the French nanosatellite sector, supported by CNES and leading manufacturers such as Thales Alenia Space, HEMERIA and Syrlinks.

    16. Australie- Cap Lambert: synapse du système productif minier du Pilbara en Australie-Occidentale

      Publishing date:

      December 23, 2019

      La mondialisation est un processus spatialement et socialement sélectif qui impose des hiérarchies territoriales tout en créant des systèmes de dépendance inédits entre les territoires. L’analyse de cette image satellite permet de mettre en évidence ces systèmes. Elle donne à voir Cap Lambert, véritable synapse au sein d’un système productif tourné vers l’exportation du minerai de fer. Ce territoire, au nord-ouest du Pilbara, est caractérisé par une double dépendance : celle de l’approvisionnement en fer et celle de la demande mondiale, et plus spécifiquement asiatique. A ces contraintes inhérentes à l’insertion dans la mondialisation s’ajoutent des contraintes locales spécifiques liées aux caractéristiques biogéographiques de cette région semi-aride, au nord-ouest de l’Etat d’Australie-Occidentale.

    19. Australie. Perth: un Eldorado minier de l’Australie-Occidentale aux portes du désert

      Publishing date:

      September 13, 2019

      En Australie occidentale, Perth et sa région constituent un pôle démographique, industriel et urbain dynamique en position littorale face à l’immense bush et à l’outback intérieur désertique. Ses richesses minières (bauxite et aluminium…) en font un des Eldorado de ce pays-continent, de plus en plus tourné vers la Chine. Ce territoire est confronté à de nombreux défis environnementaux (aridité, gestion de l’eau et protection des forêts), urbains (étalement, aménagement, ségrégation) et mémoriels (répression envers les Aborigènes).
