e-GEOS, which distributes data from the COSMO-SkyMed satellite constellation owned by the Leonardo Group and the Italian government, has just clinched two contracts for Indonesia and Japan respectively.
In Indonesia, e-GEOS won an international tender announced by the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (KKP) to support operations at its Synthetic Radar Aperture (SAR) ground station located in Perancak, Bali. KKP, through this contract, will monitor illegal fishing in the Indonesian Exclusive Economic Zone.
The agreement makes e-GEOS responsible for activating and updating software, including the satellite receiving processor and the receiving antenna. In addition, e-GEOS will guarantee acquisition of radar images from COSMO-SkyMed in near real-time.
In Japan e-GEOS renewed, for the third year in a row, an agreement with Japan Space Imaging (JSI), allowing the Japanese company to supply their clients with satellite data generated by the COSMO-SkyMed constellation.
Massimo Claudio Comparini, CEO of e-GEOS, said, “The important results achieved in Indonesia and Japan prove the success of the e-GEOS strategy of offering advanced Global Geo Information Centers which can exploit the unique performance, in terms of temporal and spatial resolution, of the satellite constellation COSMO-SkyMed. The Far East offers a number of opportunities in this field and represents an area of particular relevance for e-GEOS and the entire Leonardo Group, which, with the 2018-2022 Strategic Business Plan, aims to expand its presence and grow sales in the region”.
