EUMETSAT (European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites) is an intergovernmental organisation created by an international convention agreed by a current total of 30 European Member States.

Its primary objective is to establish, maintain and exploit European systems of operational meteorological satellites. EUMETSAT is responsible for the launch and operation of the satellites and for delivering satellite data to end-users as well as contributing to the operational monitoring of climate and the detection of global climate changes.

The activities of EUMETSAT contribute to a global meteorological satellite observing system coordinated with other space-faring nations.
