New business success for e-GEOS in Indonesia and Japan

Rome  18 September 2018

e-GEOS has extended its presence in the Far East with the awarding of a tender in Indonesia and a contract renewal in Japan.

In Indonesia, e-GEOS won an international tender announced by the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (KKP) in support of operations at the SAR (Synthetic Radar Aperture) ground station located in the Perançak Space Centre.

The agreement, whose main objective is to guarantee satellite monitoring of illegal fishing within the Indonesian Exclusive Economic Zone, provides that e-GEOS be responsible for activating and updating processing chain software, the satellite receiving processor, and the receiving antenna. In addition, the company will guarantee, through the existing receiving terminal, the acquisition of radar images from the satellites of the Italian COSMO-SkyMed constellation

With the support of e-GEOS, the Perançak Space Centre will be able to send acquisition orders for COSMO-SkyMed images, directly receive satellite data, generate value added activities like producing suspected vessel detection reports and delivering them in near real time.

In Japan, e-GEOS has renewed for the third year in a row, following an international tender, the agreement underwritten with JSI (Japan Space Imaging), allowing the Japanese company to supply their clients with satellite data generated by the COSMO-SkyMed constellation. The partnership between the two companies has already led to, in January 2017, the creation, in Japan, of a CUT (Commercial User Terminal) ground station for the management of operations of planning, acquisition and processing of satellite images.

The CEO of e-GEOS, Massimo Claudio Comparini, declared: “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 ".

COSMO-SkyMed

COSMO-SkyMed is the only Earth observation constellation radar with dual civilian and military use in the world today. From the launch of the first satellite, in 2007, the system has captured over 1 million scenes from around the world, surveying the Earth 24/7 in any meteorological and visibility condition, ensuring the supply of information which is fundamental for safety, earth monitoring, and the sustainable management of its resources, the management of natural events and emergencies, and the fight against climate change. Financed by ASI, the Ministry of Defence and the Ministry of Education, University and Research, COSMO-SkyMed was developed by the Italian space industry, with Leonardo and its joint ventures, Thales Alenia Space and Telespazio. COSMO-SkyMed data are sold around the world by e-GEOS (Telespazio/ASI).
