Canada: PCI Geomatics has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Satrec Initiative, a leading 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 0.70 m Panchromatic and 2.8 m 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. “We are so excited to be working with PCI Geomatics to introduce alternative earth observation resources from the KOMPSAT constellation to the remote sensing user society,” said Moongyu Kim, Vice President of Satellite Image Services at the Satrec Initiative.
