Kristin Vreys holds an MSc in Electronic Engineering and has a proven track record in the design and development of airborne communication systems (NATO-AWACS mid-term upgrade) and in working according to several quality standards, whether they are commercial, military, air- or space-borne.

The fascinating world of hyperspectral remote sensing reveals a wealth of information about the variety of ecosystems that surround us.

Since she started working at VITO in 2005, she has been involved in the development of the Central Data Processing Centre for airborne remote sensing, the design of the stratospheric Medusa camera and the quality assurance management of the PROBA-V user segment.

Today, she is responsible for the operational processing of the hyperspectral APEX data (calibration/validation), in support of Belgian and European researchers, institutes and agencies. She also coordinates the operations of the Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems team.
