On 18 April 2018, at 11:00 a.m., the International Seminar of the PanGeo Alliance of Earth Observation Satellites Operators will open in the hotel Europe (vul. Internacyjanaĺnaja, 28, Conference Hall, 7th floor). Representatives of large companies from China, Spain, the United Arab Emirates, the Republic of Kazakhstan, Singapore, and Canada will come to Minsk. The event is organized by the Scientific and Engineering Republican Unitary Enterprise Geoinformation Systems of the NAS of Belarus. On 18–19 April 2018, the forum participants are going to discuss current problems of the global Earth observation data market, and new technological solutions in the interest of potential consumers. Members of the PanGeo Alliance of Earth Observation Satellites Operators will also visit the NASB Geoinformation Systems unitary enterprise.
As previously reported, the NASB Geoinformation Systems unitary enterprise became a member of the International PanGeo Alliance of Earth Observation Satellite Operators in Paris on September 13, 2017.
* The PanGeo Alliance is the first global consortium of Earth observation satellite operators. It was established in September 2014. Nowadays, the alliance comprises 13 operators of space systems for the remote sensing of Earth in Europe, Asia, and America, providing multispectral imagery in a wide range of resolutions. With 7 operational very-high resolution satellites, the PanGeo Alliance manages the largest virtual constellation of submetric satellites in the world. This unprecedented collaboration assures a daily global imaging capability, with multiple revisit opportunities per day over any target. The imagery acquired by different satellites are fully compatible, enabling users with a seamless exploitation of the consortium’s data.
The NASB Geoinformation Systems unitary enterprise is one of the main developers of the Belarusian space system for the remote sensing of Earth. Since 2004, the enterprise has been determined the National operater of the system. Since 2012, the enterprise has been taking care of the uninterrupted operation of the Belarusian spacecraft on behalf of over 20 Belarusian organizations. The company's core competences include the operation of the Belarusian space system for the remote sensing of Earth, scientific research in the field of Earth remote sensing, development and engineering of geoinformation systems.
