e-GEOS signs contract in China to provide data and services with COSMO-SkyMed satellites
e-GEOS and Beijing Vastitude Technology, Chinese company active in the field of remote sensing and geo-information, have signed a multi-year agreement for the distribution in China of satellite data and related operational services generated by the Italian COSMO-SkyMed constellation.
Under this agreement, e-GEOS will provide satellite data to Beijing Vastitude Technology, its exclusive dealer in China, through a local ground station (CUT: Commercial User Terminal). The Italian company, in collaboration with the local partner, will also develop value-added civilian services such as monitoring of the Chinese territory and its stability.
Intended for the needs of local institutions and companies, satellite monitoring will ensure pinpoint accuracy of the information, providing the support necessary to check phenomena such as urban subsidence and landslides, or for the safety of major infrastructure such as railways and pipelines.
