Projects


So far, sarmap has been involved in around 80 projects: approximately 2/3 on algorithm/product/service developments at the European Space Agency. The remaining 1/3 focused on the developments of innovative remote sensing based products/services for the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, World Bank, EU Joint Research Centre and Framework Programme, Swiss Innovation Promotion, Swiss Development Cooperation, UN-IFAD, and private sector (re-insurance/insurance and financial investment sector in primis).
