The floods in central Europe led to the International Charter Space and Major Disasters being activated, which provides a unified system of data acquisition and delivery to those affected by disasters. ESA and the Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales, CNES, set up the International Charter in 1999. The DLR German Aerospace Center is managing this particular activation, with satellite missions such as TerraSAR-X and RapidEye providing imagery to aid the relief effort.
