IGARSS 2024

This week Aresys took part to the yearly appointment organized by IEEE, the International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium. More than 2500 scientists and professionals met in Athens to share updates and latest perspectives for research development and investments in the sector!

Aresys presented with contributions on SATURN, aiming to be the first MIMO SAR mission in the near future, as well as with contributions on L-band SAR forest 3D mapping, bistatic SAR tomography, MIMO SAR tomography for snow mapping.

L’impegno italiano nel settore dei CubeSat: tecnologie e missioni future

“L’impegno italiano nel settore dei CubeSat: tecnologie e missioni future”, the second workshop organized by the Agenzia Spaziale Italiana on the topic, has just concluded.

Exhibiting the technological advancement of Aresys with respect to Cubesats allowed us to explore with other participants the Smart Transceiver we have designed for RADAR/ TLC Payloads for next generation SmallSats.

Comparing with companies, researchers and other experts allows us to continue our work with passion in a broader perspective of collaboration and sharing of expertise!


Bridging Knowledge: Artificial Intelligence, ASI symposium

Aresys had the opportunity to participate in the symposium “Bridging Knowledge: Artificial Intelligence” organized by Agenzia Spaziale Italiana. It was an enlightening experience that allowed us to understand further applications of AI and machine learning in space and Earth Observation.

Aresys is a prominent AI solution provider and we are developing advanced Remote sensing AI solutions like oil spill detection and maritime traffic monitoring for the service segment of IRIDE (https://lnkd.in/dCSf3jQE) or our product for the cloud and cloud shadows segmentation for muti-spectral images (https://lnkd.in/dk6XHHcZ).

Interacting with ASI and its supporting companies provided us with new insights and new drivers to advance the uses of AI in Earth Observation!

PDR (Preliminary Design Review) of the SATURN project: completed

Aresys completed with success the PDR (Preliminary Design Review) of the SATURN project and is looking forward to the future phases C/D/E, including the In-orbit demonstration.

Aresys has been working, since the ESA-supported conceptual and feasibility studies, on the technological development of distributed SAR systems.

Distributed SAR is a paradigm shift for Earth Observation. Applied to swarms of small satellites, flying in close formation, it enables high-performance SAR imaging at reduced cost.

The potential of distributed SAR is yet to be fully demonstrated and exploited.

The SATURN project, developed within the ALCOR Agenzia Spaziale Italiana framework, direcly inherits Aresys expertise and, in its first implementation, it has the objective to demonstrate the capabilities and the performance of a distributed “SAR train”. SATURN will be the first MIMO SAR space system, for which Aresys is developing the miniaturized SAR payload and the processing scheme.

Aresys would also like to thank the partners of this project OHB Italia S.p.A., Airbus Italia and Politecnico di Milano.

EUSAR 2024

Aresys recently participated at the prestigious EUSAR 2024 organized by German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Munich and is proud to announce that the work “FDM MIMO SAR Tomography” by Politecnico di Milano, Aresys and ISAE-SUPAERO won the best paper award for a significant contribution in the SAR field.

The work, presented by Professor Stefano Tebaldini from Politecnico di Milano, focuses on a new distributed SAR tomography concept, developed in collaboration with Aresys.

EO4SECURITY project to tackle environmental crimes

EO4SECURITY is a new European Space Agency project led by e-GEOS, joint enterprise between Telespazio (80%) and ASI (20%), to which we are grateful for allowing us to participate. The program aims to curb environmental crimes and illegal activities through the use of satellite data.

Aresys is pleased to contribute, in the spirit of environmental protection that we value, by providing its expertise in SAR imaging and its SimRAD simulator.

“It is now clear that a clean, safe and sustainable environment is integral to the full implementation of a broad spectrum of human rights and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations 2030 Agenda. Because, ultimately, protecting our planet is synonymous with protecting people,” declares e-GEOS.
