Monday 19 June at the International Paris Air Show, Benoît Bazire, Chair of CLIMATE CITY’s Strategic Committee, signed a statement of intent with Xavier Bertrand, President of the Hauts-de France region, and Damien Castelain, President of MEL, the Lille interborough council.
The goal of this partnership agreement is to deploy a C-Birds One demonstrator over Lille and to locate a research and operations centre in the region. This signature marks a key milestone for CLIMATE CITY, which is set to deploy demonstrators in a number of cities around the world this year, including Bangalore, Le Havre, Abidjan and New York. Lille will thus be the first city equipped with this system capable of modelling urban microclimates.
In addition to this event at the start of the Paris Air Show, CLIMATE CITY held a conference in the pavilion of the French space agency CNES on Wednesday 21 June, where it presented its project alongside Earth2Orbit CEO Susmita Mohanty, who it was introduced to early last year through CNES.
