DMC International Imaging (DMCii) is helping The Algerian Space Agency (ASAL) to predict the spread of locust plagues across North Africa as part of a pro-active approach to tackle the destructive phenomenon using satellite imagery. Every year, North Africa is subjected to locust plagues that threaten to decimate crops and endanger countries’ food security. The [...]
An experimental GPS receiver, built by Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL), has successfully achieved a GPS position fix at 23,300km altitude – the first position fix above the GPS constellation on a civilian satellite. The SGR-GEO receiver is collecting data that could help SSTL to develop a receiver to navigate spacecraft in Geostationary orbit (GEO) [...]
GeoCento Ltd has received Technology Strategy Board SMART funding for development of a web-service for multi-satellite image search and planning. The company is currently looking to expand its team to support this development. GeoCento was established in December 2011 as a result of a conviction that the exploitation of earth imagery is being constrained by [...]
