Creating space downstream applications

Download the brochure

Space technology may seem expensive or inaccessible, but many organizations are using satellites to deliver faster, better services and at lower cost. Space offers unique capabilities that cannot be delivered any other way. Growing at an average of 9% per year over the last decade, space-related IT is one of the world’s fastest growing sectors.

Our space applications and services extract information from satellite data—including weather, navigation, telecommunication, and geographical survey information. We have developed space-enabled applications for health, transportation, government, agriculture, maritime, oil and gas, trading, finance, and insurance.

Developing an application or service often brings together many technologies and systems. Our applications and services meet the highest safety-critical standards, operating reliably around-the-clock, resolving the toughest technical issues and enabling clients to achieve maximum performance from their space assets. We offer reliable, managed services to host our solutions and a proven track record.
