From space to industry
Space technology and expertise are deeply integrated into the system.
Currently GPS is used at 4d-miner to make it possible to record data in the field using commonly available mobile devices to code the data immediately together with its geo coordinates. Later the Galileo navigation system could be integrated.
ESA Business Incubation
SAMANGO is hosted at ESA Business Incubation Centre (BIC) Darmstadt, run by the German company cesah. This has provided the opportunity to consult ESA experts who have supported with technology insights and ideas to improve the system.
In addition, especially the support provided by cesah in relation to general business activities has been very helpful.
