ESA Business Incubation
Aside from the financial support, GeoMon sees the network in and around the ESA BIC as a vital asset for its further development. Especially the connection to the nearby Hessian state office for soil management and geoinformation is of high importance.
The incubation period in the ESA BIC program started in June 2013 and will last until May 2015.
From space to industry
The used UAV needs GPS satellites for positioning and autonomous navigation. Also the small format aerial images close a gap between satellite images and aircraft-based photography. Furthermore GeoMon is able to analyze satellite images as well as all other aerial photos.
