Satellite Vu, a pioneering satellite Earth Observation (EO) company dedicated to addressing economic activity monitoring and climate challenges with an innovative high resolution infrared satellite sensor, has opened a new office at Geovation, an Ordnance Survey initiative in association with HM Land Registry, dedicated to supporting open innovation and collaboration using location and property data.
Located in the heart of London, the new office space will place Satellite Vu within the UK hub for development of technology specifically for location purposes and a focus for like-minded network of customers, partners and investors.
“Backed by industry and government, Geovation offers the ideal place for Satellite Vu to flourish, in the heart of a community renowned to be a centre of innovation by customers and investors for location based services,” said Anthony Baker, CEO, Satellite Vu. “Our satellites will provide users with unprecedented data that will help business make better decisions based on our new infrared satellite imagery insights and to tackle our most pressing environmental challenges. I can’t think of a better place in which to drive our business forward.”
To begin the year, the company will also be participating in two key upcoming events:
The World Future Energy Summit will take place in Abu Dhabi from 13-16 January. Satellite Vu is a finalist at the Climate Innovations Exchange (CLIX) event and Simon Tucker, VP Business Development, will present a pitch on Sustainability in Space. The event, launched in 2018, supports the UAE’s Ministry of Climate Change and Environment strategy to enable the sourcing and funding of climate change solutions and technologies. Satellite Vu technology will be directly applicable to problems of energy efficiency, productivity monitoring, pollution control and energy security.
Satellite Vu will also be represented at the GeoBuiz event in Monterey, California on 13-14 January by Anthony Baker, who will present on the Miniaturization and Innovation in Sensors panel from 11-11.45am on 14 January, during the NewSpace track. He will relay his experience of how Satellite Vu’s use of commercial-off-the-shelf technology has driven down costs, whilst providing greater spatial resolution, higher temporal cadence and richer spectral coverage.
“We are looking forward to a great start to 2020,” said Simon Tucker. “The opening of our new office in an environment where we can really innovate and push the business forward, combined with our participation in these global events gives us great momentum as we move into a new year. We look forward to the continued development of a business that has the power to help transform our world through better business decisions.”
