e-GEOS S.p.A.


e-GEOS, a Telespazio (80%) / ASI (20%) company, is a leading international player in the geo-spatial business. e-GEOS offers a complete range of products and services in the Earth Observation and in the geo-spatial application domains, based on both optical and radar satellites as well as on aerial surveys. The Rome-based company employs more than 300 people and operates through the Earth Observation centres in Matera (Italy) and Neustrelitz (Germany). As the European hub for VHR (Very High Resolution) data, e-GEOS grants unique access to the COSMO-SkyMed, GeoEye-1, IKONOS, Radarsat, Envisat, QuickBird and WorldView and IRS satellites.

In particular, COSMO-SkyMed represents a tremendous competitive advantage as it opens up a new era of operational applications. The COSMO-SkyMed earth observation programme of the Italian Space Agency and the Italian Ministry of Defence, based on a constellation of four VHR SAR satellites, provides all-weather, day and night, world-wide radar data acquisitions. e-GEOS exploits COSMO-SkyMed data to offer near-real-time monitoring services and large-area mapping capabilities for customers such as NGA (National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency of the US Government), in combination with its existing product and services portfolio, which comprises solutions for key vertical markets including emergency management, maritime surveillance, agriculture & forestry, cadastre, environmental protection, oil & gas, utilities and industries.

e-GEOS is part of the Telespazio (Finmeccanica/Thales) group, operating the largest civil space infrastructure in the world, at the Fucino Space Centre, providing unrivalled service capacity. e-GEOS can rely on the specific know-how and market presence of the various companies within the group, such as GAF and Euromap, Eurimage, Aurensis, Telespazio Argentina and others, that enrich its competitive advantages and provide synergies in the product chain and for market development at international level.

e-GEOS owns and operates the Multi-mission station located at the Matera Space Centre, where data from several EO satellites (COSMO-SkyMed, Envisat, ERS-2, Radarsat-1&2 and others) are downlinked and processed both for commercial services and services to the Italian Space Agency and the European Space Agency, e-GEOS and its subsidiary GAF/Euromap operate their own data processing services at the Earth Observation Space Centers of Matera, Italy (radar and optical) and Neustrelitz, Germany (optical). Multiple satellites are received and processed in these two hubs, also for near-real-time monitoring (Matera).

e-GEOS is one of the main industrial players in the European GMES Program (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security) where it leads projects such as GMOSAIC (Management of Operations, Situation Awareness and Intelligence for regional Crises) LIMES (Land and Sea Integrated Monitoring for Environment and Security) and LinkER (Supporting Action for the implementation of operational GMES services in Emergency Response) for the European Union as well as MARISS (Maritime Security Services) for the European Space Agency.

Thanks to the services developed in these projects, e-GEOS is today a world leader in environmental and maritime monitoring and in rapid mapping for the management of natural disasters and humanitarian crises, cooperating with EMSA (European Maritime Safety Agency) EUSC (European Union Satellite Centre), JRC (Joint Research Centre of the European Commission), various UN Organizations and the Italian Civil Defence.

The company serves a variety of national and international clients, both in the public and private sectors, including customers such as the Italian Ministry of Agriculture (through AGEA/SIN) for the management of the Common Agricultural Policy in Italy, the Italian Ministry of the Environment for the interferometric processing of SAR data over all the national territory, major international oil & gas companies (ENI, Shell, Total) and railroads (RFI, NIIAS).
