The workshop was foucused on SAR applications to address real-life topics for society. Francesco Banda, our SAR Scientist, exposed recent developments on BIOMASS processing to generate forest products, whereas professor Stefano Tebaldini from Politecnico di Milano presented a new distributed tomography concept for snow mapping, developed in collaboration with Aresys.
Peaceful intentions underlie the new collaboration signed between Italy and South Korea, fortifying the pre-existing relationship in the space sector. The Memorandum of Understanding was sealed in the presence of Italian President Sergio Mattarella and the President of the Republic of South Korea, Yoon Suk-yeo. The collaboration was signed by Italian Space Agency President, Teodoro Valente, and South Korea’s Minister of Science and ICT, Lee Jong-ho.
“Aresys has been continuously supporting South Korea Space industry for more than 10 years now, and the outlook for future activities is exciting. South Korea space industry is at the technological far front at a global level and it offers a unique opportunity to face challenging technological problems and to develop innovative solutions. We are more than happy to see that the cooperation between the two countries is supported at the highest level”, Davide D’Aria, Aresys CEO, points out.
The areas that will be implemented through the Memorandum of Understanding, can be read on the ASI website, are: space science and exploration, Earth observation with a focus on environmental monitoring and disaster management, technologies concerning synthetic aperture radar, integrated applications, and promotion of space sector initiatives for industries and commerce.
What a great journey! From October 23 to 27 Davide D’Aria, Aresys CEO, and Fabio Gerace, our Business Development Manager, took part in the Italian Aerospace Mission. From SpaceX and Rocket Lab‘s next-generation rockets, through Virgin Galactic‘s spaceflights concepts and up to the moon with Axiom Space‘s lunar exploration innovations. Without missing a must-see visit to the iconic NASA’s JPL and JSC headquarters.
We would like to thank again Agenzia Spaziale Italiana and ITA Houston – Italian Trade Agency for this great opportunity and to the selected excellence of the Italian aerospace industry that was our fellow traveler. We come back home, with strengthen links to our national space industries and institutions and a renewed impulse to innovate and push forward our technologies.
High Performance Computing coupled with AI techniques allow to monitor water reservoirs from space. Have a look to the smart monitoring tool based on ESA Sentinel-2 optical images that Paolo Mazzucchelli, our manager of HPC and geophysical solutions, presented at the HPC industry Summit in Berlin, from October 18th to 19th.
Committee on Earth Observation Satellites Synthetic Aperture Radar Workshop 2023 (CEOS SAR WGCV 2023) took place from Monday October 16th to Wednesday October 18th 2023 at DLR premises in Oberpfaffenhofen. Andrea Recchia, SAR Engineering Services, and Beatrice Mai, SAR Data Processing and Calibration Engineer, had the opportunity to meet many colleagues having the chance to attend many interesting talks on SAR data calibration and validation activities. “We were glad to contribute to the conference talking about the Sentinel-1 calibration activities that Aresys performs as part of the SAR Mission Performance Cluster (MPC)”, Recchia comments.
