Edition 57 | Spring 2019


I am really pleased and proud to say that EARSC was awarded bronze place as the European Association of the year in the category for under 30 employees. This achievement is made even greater when we consider that we were entered in the category of “Association with less than 10 employees”, but mysteriously, the category was changed during the evaluations and we were beaten by two Associations with around 20 employees each. So really we are the golden European Association of the year (with under 10 employees)! […]


"While Japan has an advanced and competitive EO space infrastructure and is home to a large and sophisticated end-user market, opportunities exist in a number of – sometimes untapped - downstream markets including services for agriculture & forestry, fisheries, maritime vessel monitoring and drones."
