Abstract. In today’s context, where climate change is increasingly topical and of global interest, the ATEMO (Atmospheric Technologies for Earth Monitoring and Observation) project proposes a multi-purpose solution, which can be integrated on board drones or stratospheric balloons, to provide a framework for environmental assessment in areas of interest. Specifically, ATEMO, equipped with a set of cameras and sensors, aims to enrich data on air pollution, light pollution and vegetation health with high spatial resolution and rapid deployment.
