Euroconsult’s World Satellite Business Week, Sept. 10-14 in Paris, is four conferences in one and brings together heavy-hitters from across the global satellite industry.

In addition to the satellite financing and communications focus that dominates the first three days, there’s a one-day breakout session on the connected airplane and two days dedicated to the Earth-observation market.

The SpaceNews editorial team will be reporting from Paris throughout the week.

The first wind data from ESA’s Aeolus satellite released Sept. 12 shows three quarters of one orbit. The image shows large-scale easterly and westerly winds between Earth’s surface and the lower stratosphere, including jet streams. As the satellite orbits from the Arctic towards the Antarctic, it senses, for example, strong westerly wind streams at mid latitudes (shown in blue). Closer to Antarctic, Aeolus senses strong westerly winds circling the Antarctic continent in the troposphere and stratosphere (shown in blue left of Antarctica and in red right of Antarctica.)
