North East Satellite Applications Centre of Excellence

Business Durham leads a North East consortium to run the North East Satellite Applications Centre of Excellence.

The Centre helps organisations to solve problems and open up opportunities using satellite data and technology, e.g., better management of assets, earlier warnings of floods, more accurate information on condition monitoring, etc., all leading to more efficient use of resources, more market opportunities and a better quality of life.

The Centre helps businesses to exploit the use of satellite data, technology and applications to gain a competitive advantage in a global market – we are interested in hearing from organisations already in the space sector but also from those which have the potential to work in the space and satellite sector but have not yet investigated what market opportunities this might mean.
