Established in March 2000, the company aims at commercially exploiting the results of many years of academic research carried out in house at the Dept. of Electronics and Information in the field of satellite remote sensing and in particular in Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data processing.

SMALL altamira-1 ALTAMIRA INFORMATION is a leading international company in the field of Earth Observation using radar satellite. It provides customised solutions for the detection and measurements of ground movement with millimetric precision and mapping solutions for the major industry sectors: oil and gas, infrastructures, natural hazards and mining.

SMALL gamma-rs Gamma Remote Sensing AG is a SME established in Switzerland. GAMMA has a high expertise in the use of radar techniques for land surface deformation monitoring. 

SMALL igme The Instituto Geológico y Minero de España (IGME) was created by a Royal Decree of 12th July 1849 with the original denomination of “Commission for the Geological Chart of Madrid and the Kingdom”. 

Booz-and-company-color Booz & Company, a premier global management consulting firm, was launched in May 2008 following the separation of Booz Allen Hamilton’s global commercial business from its U.S. Government services business.

SMALL elgiThe Magyar Állami Eötvös Loránd Geofizikai Intézet (MFGI) was established in 1907 by the state as the first applied geophysical institute in the world. As one of the institutes of the Hungarian Office for Mining and Geology (MBFH), ELGI is responsible for the research activities related to Hungarian geological and geophysical tasks.

SMALL bafu The Federal Office for the Environment FOEN is the federal government’s centre of environmental expertise and is part of the Federal Department of the Environment, Transport, Energy and Communications (DETEC).

SMALL pgi The Państwowy Instytut Geologiczny-Państwowy Instytut Badawczy is the largest R&D state institution conducting studies of geological setting of the country under the general supervision of the Ministry of the Environment. PGI performs the function of the national geological survey and the national hydrogeological survey.
