What we do
Astrosat, based in Edinburgh, Scotland, collaborates with major European and other international space bodies. It uses earth observation data from around the world and varied satellite communications systems to create solutions to both existing and future problems.
The team at Astrosat has created systems which have the capacity to protect and save lives on a global scale. One of these is the Recovery and Protection in Disaster (RAPID) system, designed to provide data sourced from every available satellite to allow a developing country to make large costs savings through greater resilience and recovery from disaster.
RAPID aggregates, manages, analyses and shares critical infrastructure data, creating actionable intelligence for operational monitoring of urban centres and rural outputs to ensure vital areas such as food security or export resilience are maintained.
Astrosat has also created mechanisms for monitoring coastal erosion, off-shore energy and communications security in the field. Constantly piping its value driven innovations into commercialisation resulting in an impressive growth – unprecedented in the UK space sector.
