The North East Satellite Applications Centre of Excellence helps organisations to solve problems and open up opportunities using satellite data and technology. This could include better management of assets, earlier warnings of floods, more accurate information on condition monitoring, etc., all leading to more efficient use of resources, more market opportunities and a better quality of life.
The Centre helps businesses to exploit the use of satellite data, technology and applications to gain a competitive advantage in a global market and is interested in hearing from organisations already in the space sector but also from those which have the potential to work in the space and satellite sector but have not yet investigated what market opportunities this might mean.
Key sectors include: Offshore oil, gas and renewable technologies; Transport and logistics; Software and applications development.
The Centre provides assistance to organisations via one to one support, events, and Engage, an intensive deep-dive service that can radically re-frame “problems” and make them into opportunities. The overarching theme is using satellite applications to create a safer world, including sustainable living and climate change, security of supply chains, building resilience in infrastructure and assets, and more.
