[SatNews] PCI Geomatics, a developer of remote sensing and photogrammetric software and systems, announced that is has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Satrec Initiative, a solution provider for Earth observation missions, based in Daejeon, South Korea.
The agreement is intended to develop commercial relations between the two companies and promote the operational use of KOMPSAT imagery on a global basis, most notably the recently launched KOMPSAT-3 satellite. KOMPSAT-3 is an optical imaging satellite capable of imaging the Earth with a resolution of 0.70m Panchromatic and 2.8m Multispectral (Blue, Green, Red, Near-IR). KOMPSAT-3 includes the Advanced Earth Imaging Sensor System (AEISS), which is a high-resolution imager (Pan and MS). The imagery is commercially available through the Satrec Initiative.
Some of the key activities that will be implemented as a result of this agreement are the provision of sample KOMPSAT-3 imagery that can be distributed with Geomatica, PCI’s flagship software platform. In addition, the Satrec Initiative will provide imagery to applications specialists and scientists at PCI Geomatics in order to develop automated and highly accurate methods of correcting large volumes of the imagery, as well as to develop innovative application examples and demonstrations for operational applications. Together with the Satrec Initiative, PCI Geomatics will host webinars that will showcase possible applications through the use of the imagery and the Geomatica software platform.
