HARM - E. O. Historical Archive Rationalization and Management

The Historical Archives Rationalization and Management (HARM) Project of ESA aims at harmonizing the storage and management of the earth observation data acquired by the ESA facilities since 1975.

Within the project HARM a Standard Archive Format for Europe (SAFE) is designed and a system for data conversion of all the data to the new unified format is set up. The distributed ESA archives are consolidated further by removing data duplications introduced by receiving station coverage overlap. Werum as a subcontractor to ACS contributes the orbit overlap removal functionality to the project.
