Ecometrica has landed one of its most significant contracts to date with a role that sees it co-ordinate a major new international project on behalf of the UK Space Agency.
The firm will take the role of main contractor in one of the first projects of the agency’s International Partnership Space Programme (IPSP), setting up a network of virtual regional Earth Observation (EO) Labs to develop suitable products for the forest sector.
The project is aimed at addressing a lack of usable data from the unparalleled numbers of images being sent to Earth from satellites. It will use advanced cloud computing systems and Ecometrica’s software platform to allow data to be managed, made relevant and shared.
Ecometrica will initially work with Brazilian space research institute INPE and Mexican research group ECOSUR, as well as several of the UK’s leading forest EO researchers and experts.
