DHV Technology is part of the consortium of companies from five European countries (Spain, Germany, Poland, Italy and France) participating in the project NEMOS, “Novel Earth and Maritime Observation Satellite”.
This project will study and design a small satellite mission to be implemented in the frame of a constellation, able to provide near real-time surveillance for multiple Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) defense operation scenarios requiring continuous tracking of thousands of km of coastline, monitoring of critical maritime infrastructures, and scanning of the sea surface.
The mission will combine small optical satellites in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) capable of providing simultaneous visible and Short-Wave Infrared (SWIR) images offering unprecedented spatial resolution. Those images will be combined with complementary geographic data.
The companies involved on this project are: Satlantis, Astro- uno Feinwerktechnik Adlershof, Telespazio, DHV Technology, Syrlinks, AVIO, Solaris Optics, Thales Alenia Space Italia and Thales Alenia Space France.
