The objective of the CERES (CapacitÉ de Renseignement Électromagnétique Spatiale) military mission is to gather signals intelligence from areas that surface sensors cannot reach, free from airspace overflight constraints and in all weathers, thus providing an in-depth situational picture to support conception and execution of military operations.
