The European Space Agency (ESA) and European Space Imaging (EUSI), the company that owns and operates the European IKONOS ground station, entered into an agreement that gives ESA access to more than 15 million square kilometers of IKONOS satellite imagery.

Within its Third Party Mission scheme, ESA provides to earth observation (EO) users data from non-ESA missions to complement the data from ESA EO missions and to support and build up the scientific user community for those data in Europe.

IKONOS as a Third Party Mission is available to ESA and ESA-approved projects for scientific research, applications development, or research and development in preparation for operational use in future, the so-called Category-1 use.

Typical application areas are disaster management and mitigation, civil protection, humanitarian aid, agriculture and forestry.

The available IKONOS data can now be browsed and ordered online through ESA's EOLI system. A special link-up of EUSI’s Online User Services to ESA’s EOLI systems was developed by EOX IT Services GmbH. Archived products will be transferred on ESA’s request from EUSI’s production center to be stored at and disseminated from the Multi-Mission Facility Infrastructure of ESA which is located at the premises of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen.
