Planetek Italia S.r.l.
Simplifying the complexity of space
Planetek Italia designs new processes and solutions that simplify the use of geospatial information. We cover all phases of the geospatial data life cycle, from the acquisition, storage, management, analysis and sharing of information in order to produce and generate knowledge.
We adopt the principles of Strategic Design to satisfy users’ needs with full respect for economic, social and environmental sustainability and technological feasibility.
Our application areas are environmental and land monitoring, open-government, smart cities, as well as, scientific missions for Universe exploration:
• Development and integration of Earth Observation data processing chains designed for the supply and distribution of geospatial solutions oriented to the user and derived from optical and radar data, as well as for the integration of these data in a fully operating Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) INSPIRE compliant. We provide solutions in the fields of urban planning, coastal monitoring and protection, tourism, fleet monitoring, defence, civil protection and emergency response, as well as in the markets of energy, Oil&Gas, transport (railways, roads), utilities and infrastructures.
• Definition and implementation of software for space systems for Earth Observation and Planetary Exploration missions such as ERS, Envisat, COSMO-SkyMed, Prisma, Mars Express, Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and Solar Orbiter. We provide “Ground Segment” systems and technologies to manage and process satellite data acquired by the spacecraft instruments. Our main activities include real-time systems, on board processing software for the space segment, radar and optical data processing for the ground segment, mission planning and software for EGSE.
