CLS Argos (Collecte Localisation Satellite)
The CLS Argos (Collecte Localisation Satellite) , located in Toulouse (France), carries out the scientific quality control of ERS-1 and ERS-2 altimeter data processed at CERSAT (OPR and VLC products).
JPL PO.DAAC (Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center)
The JPL PO.DAAC (Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center) , located in Pasadena (California, USA) archives and distributes oceanographic data collected by satellite sensors. Many products (sea-ice maps, mean wind fields, colocated products,...) are generated at CERSAT using the data provided by JPL/PO.DAAC. As a partner, the JPL/PO.DAAC also hosts a mirror site of the CERSAT. The CERSAT distributes on-line some JPL products, as a mirror site for the European scientific community.
ESA / DUE
The ESA program which funds such innovative projets such as Medspiration, GlobWave or GlobIce in which the CERSAT is involved.
The European Spatial Agency
The European Spatial Agency (ESA) is the main promoter of the ERS program. As a ground segment element for the ERS program, CERSAT is a subcontractor of ESA. On one hand, the ESA official web site provides information about the agency. On the other hand, a gateway provides online access to the ESA earth observation programs (Earthnet Online).
