European Data Relay Satellite (EDRS) system, computer artwork. The EDRS system will have two satellites placed in geostationary orbit that will relay data between spacecraft, satellites not in geostationary orbit and fixed ground stations. This will reduce time delays in such transmission as it allows permanent contact between all participants. The first stage of EDRS is due for launch in 2014.
