MUTE Project CCN kick-off 

25/07/2016 - The "Multiple Frequency Radar Compact Transponder (MUTE) Project" CCN has been successfully kicked-off today by ESA and Space Engineering. 

 

Progressive Systems as subcontractor in the selected consortium led by Space Engineering will ensure continuous monitoring of the transponders via Sentinel 1A and 1B data analysis throughout the duration of the project and provide timely and relevant parameters to support field validation activities. 

 

 

ESA Research and Service Support Contract awarded 

01/08/2015 - Progressive Systems will be part of the ESA EMSS Framecontract as well covering major roles in the Research and Service Support (RSS) service. As subcontractor in the selected consortium led by CGI UK, Progressive will be responsible for service management, operations, research support and exploitation platform support. 

 

The objective of the RSS service is to provide tools, resources and expert support to researchers, service companies, educators, and other relevant stakeholders (e.g. application platforms) involved in Earth Observation data exploitation. 

 

 

Software Prototyping and Mobile App Development Contract by ESA awarded 

01/10/2014 - Earlier this year, the European Space Agency (ESA) released an open invitation to tender for an activity encompassing software prototyping and mobile app development.

 

The contract was awarded to an international consortium led by Solenix Deutschland GmbH (DE) with ASRC Srl (RO), GISAT s.r.o. (CZ), Progressive Systems Srl (IT) and Qualteh JR Srl (RO) as subcontractors. The framework contract will span over three years and host multiple individual projects. 

 

The purpose of the contract is on one hand, to promote ESA's activities, and products in the Earth Observation domain to users, scientists and the general public in order to increase awareness and facilitate exploitation of the Earth Observation data. On the other hand the contract will serve as a mechanism to reduce technical risks in  the development of the Earth Observation Ground Segment by means of rapid prototyping for new concept and technology assessment.

 

All members of the consortium are really excited and motivated to start their activities in this contract.
