Dutch Satellite Innovations for Supporting Climate Action
TNO and SRON are proud to speak at COP27 Climate conference in Egypt on 8 November 2022 for the event Dutch Satellite Innovations for Supporting Climate Action. This event is organized by the Dutch Clear Air research consortium and dives into the practical possibilities to support climate action with satellite observations.
BENELUX-EIB Pavilion at COP27, Sharm El-Sheikh or livestream
The event Clear Air: Dutch Satellite Innovations for Supporting Climate Action seeks to inspire with practical possibilities to use satellites are used to monitor emissions, improve emission inventories, and help realize climate policy under the Paris Agreement. It is organized by Clear Air, a consortium of the Dutch research and technology organizations. The event is held at the Benelux/EIB pavilion of the COP in Sharm El-Sheikh.

Hugo Denier van der GonFunctie:Principal scientist air quality and environment
I seek to identify, investigate and understand the consequences of human activities on the environment, especially on air quality and global climate change. I believe sound science can make a difference in the complex, but necessary, transition to a sustainable society.

TNO’s view of 2030: Getting a grip on climate change from space
Greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere are one of the main contributors to climate change and must therefore be rapidly reduced if we are to meet the 2030 climate targets. TNO is working on new satellite technology that makes it possible to do so. Because the better we identify emissions, the more targeted the action we can take.
Earth observation: monitoring our planet
TNO has a long legacy in developing instruments that monitor our planet’s atmosphere and allow us to mitigate the impact of greenhouse gases and air pollution.
SmallCAT laser communication system delivered for integration to Norwegian NORSAT-TD Spacecraft
The SmallCAT uses new optical communication technology that uses satellites to send information to Earth. This happens via invisible light signals and enables much faster data transfers than using the radio frequencies currently employed for communication everywhere.
Consortium led by TNO successfully transmits data via laser communication between optical terminals over 10 km ground-to-ground link
Successful field test of 10 km optical laser communication link Laser satellite communication uses satellites that send information to earth in the form of invisible light signals.
