On-Going Projects

We develop our service all the time, therefore, we have on-going projects with ESA and we are part of the Finnish Government Spearhead Project.

Shrub mapping

Satellio won international ESA bidding, which aims to develop service to detect shrubs interfearing conifer forest growth in the borealis zone. The project with ESA concentrates on shrub mapping. At this point the first results are promising and the estimation is that the service could have positive financial and socio-economical impacts.

Forest Law Enforcement

Satellio is developing enforcement tool in the Finnish Government Spearhead Project. The project aims to develop service, which is used to detect changes in forestry biomass.
