GomSpace selected for the delivery of nanosatellite platform subsystem
GomSpace has been selected by and has entered into a procurement contract with the Universidade de Vigo to deliver platform subsystems for the LUME-1 Nanosatellite, financed by the European Commission.
GomSpace will deliver platform subsystems composed of fully flight proven hardware to Universidade de Vigo.
The FIRE-RS project aims to implement an effective tool for the early detection and characterization of natural disasters, initially focused on wildland fires within the Sudoe territory (France, Spain, and Portugal regions). In this way, it will provide a complete assessment of the fire to the involved firefighting brigades, before and during the firefighting operations, through the combination and operation of a Nanosatellite, autonomous UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) and a simulation and assessment software tool.
“GomSpace is happy to collaborate with the University of Vigo, a world-renowned institution in the field of Nanosatellites. This application is yet another important step in the expanding use of Nanosatellites for new services” Says Niels Buus, CEO of GomSpace
