"We help you profit from the flood of geospatial imagery. Our Keystone software is sensor agnostic, so works equally well with imagery and video from satellites, drones and manned aircraft. We give you the tools to transform unprocessed sensor data into quality geospatial imagery ready for analysis. Our philosophy is to have a light touch on data, only processing exactly what is needed. We broke the traditional data stovepipe and made flexibility the new normal."
- Torbjörn Westin, Co-founder Spacemetric.
THE SWEDISH COPERNICUS DATA HUB
The Copernicus Data Hub, referred as SWEA, is a system in Sweden for long-term storage and distribution of imagery from the Sentinel satellites of the European Copernicus programme for Earth Observation. Following the successful acceptance, Spacemetric is seeking new ways of introducing the Copernicus Data Hub in other countries as well as adapting it for the upcoming DIAS procurement from ESA.
The SWEA system is operated by Spacemetric and is deployed in a cloud environment provided by Interoute. It has a high availability and is scalable to meet both the growing volumes of Copernicus data and the expanding user community.
In accordance with the SWEA project plan, the delivery was achieved seven months from the contract start.
POTENTIAL FOR DATA HUB IN OTHER COUNTRIES
Based on the company’s experience with the Swedish Copernicus portal, existing software and ongoing operations, Spacemetric is offering quickly deployable Data Hub solutions to Copernicus partners and users.
For almost two decades Spacemetric has provided partners and customers world-wide with efficient image management systems. A key strength is building operational systems for archiving, cataloguing and distribution of data from all types of satellite and airborne sensors. Our Copernicus Data Hub is a distribution centre where you can access your Sentinel and other types of satellite data. Reach it through a web portal or connect through APIs.
