This paper focuses on COSMO SECONDA GENERAZIONE (CSG) satellite that, thanks to its outstanding performances and enhancements, both guarantees operational continuity to the currently operating COSMO-SkyMed “first generation”, Ref.

The CSG programme is funded by the Italian Ministry of Research and Italian Ministry of Defence (I-MoD) and managed by the Italian Space Agency (ASI) in conjunction with I-MoD.
