Smart Cities & Intelligent Transport Challenge
Astrosat tracks top European prize
Astrosat, the ambitious space services and management company, has won another major European prize.
The Edinburgh-based company, which specialises in innovative space technology, won the 2015 Copernicus Masters Smart Cities and Intelligent Transport Challenge, sponsored by Satellite Applications Catapult, for its eXude flood monitoring application.
Aerosat took the prize at a ceremony in Berlin for Europe’s major innovation competition for space applications.
It is the sixth award that Astrosat has won in the four years since it was established.
Last year it was awarded the Copernicus Masters transport and logistics prize for its Transport Sentry application, which uses synthetic aperture radar and optical satellites to examine road and rail links.
Steve Lee, founder and CEO, said: “The Copernicus Masters brings together innovative challengers to provide solutions for business and society based on Earth observation data and we are delighted to have been awarded this new accolade.”
Astrosat’s fast growing team of highly accomplished engineers has helped to transform the way space-based information can be used to bring previously unattainable benefits to energy, transport and aquaculture enterprises.
