Serco to contribute to the EarthCARE project

Published: 8 Apr 2024

We are pleased to announce that Serco in Italy and the Czech Republic has won a project called EarthCARE, as part of consortium led by Exprivia. EarthCARE is the sixth project by the European Space Agency (ESA) aimed at studying how the climate is changing, both due to natural causes and human actions. This project will look at clouds, tiny particles in the air, and how sunlight and heat move through the atmosphere. The information gathered will help scientists make better climate models and studies. This initiative aligns perfectly with Serco's mission to positively impact society and our planet, and we are proud to have been chosen for this contract.
 
The project, worth €2.8 million, kicked off in December 2023. The satellite launch is planned for May 2024, and it will be tested and adjusted for six months after that. The project has two main parts: the first lasts a year, and the second could go for up to 3.5 years. Serco will be working on both parts. Serco's responsibilities include organising operations, defining processes, training the team, planning missions, monitoring operations from start to finish, managing any issues or changes, and ensuring seamless and efficient delivery of the project.

Serco is one of the leading space industry and services companies. With over 40 years’ experience in supporting the space sector, Serco has supported more than 50 customers’ space missions.
