Spacemetric receives order for Nigeriasat-2 image management system

(26 June 2008). Spacemetric has received an order from Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd (UK) for a comprehensive image management solution for the Nigeriasat-2 satellite being built for the National Space Research & Development Agency of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. This satellite features an agile platform carrying a 32m multispectral imager and a second, high-resolution imager.
The solution to be delivered by Spacemetric builds upon its proven Keystone image management technology and provides the image catalogue, archive management and product processing functions for Nigeriasat-2. Support is also provided for the current Nigeriasat-1 satellite which forms part of the Disaster Management Constellation (DMC) coordinated by SSTL. The imagery from Nigeriasat-2 will be received, managed and processed in Nigeria and Keystone will have a key role in supporting an efficient and streamlined workflow for the timely supply of imagery to a range of applications.

Saccess satellite image database launched

(25 June 2008). The new Swedish national satellite image database Saccess ( was launched on 24th June 2008. This is the latest solution developed for the National Land Survey by Spacemetric and builds on the same technology platform as the airborne image production system that was taken into operation during 2007.
Saccess has been established by the Swedish National Land Survey with running costs financed by a consortium of government agencies and private companies. It provides easy access to imagery covering the whole of Sweden with datasets as recent as 2007 and stretching back to the 1970s. New national datasets are planned from 2008 onwards so that Saccess will offer a constantly growing sequence of snapshots for environmental monitoring and climate change research. Spacemetric has developed the complete Saccess system incorporating an image catalogue and archive, product processing and distribution functions.
