SpaceTec has broad expertise in Earth Observation from all its angles. Relying on long-standing relationships with our commercial and institutional clients, we help driving EO programmes of the future.

The growing EO market is being reshaped by rapid technological advancements. Copernicus` monthly download volume is just one indicator of the vast data availability currently evolving. Satellite manufacturers contribute with an exponential growth of COTS satellites, reduced in size and cost but not in capacity to capture observational data. However, the downstream market does not just demand more data. Instead, business models shift from providing raw data to analytics and providing value-added services.

This shift is driven by opportunities in big data and cloud processing, where AI accelerates the generation of insights. Use cases are expanding across industries including agriculture, defence, emergency, energy, infrastructure, forestry or maritime.

SpaceTec offers in-depth expertise in the EO domain, having hands-on experience in both the up-, mid- and downstream sectors and in many of the new EO applications. SpaceTec has a significant impact in EO, for example with engagements for Copernicus, supporting the European Commission, EUSPA and ESA to grow the ecosystem adding new users and entrepreneurs.
