Supporting the full extent of your earth observation mission

Earth observation missions and remote sensing solutions are complex. For success, you need to bring together a great variety of skills and knowledge. Luckily we support you throughout the entire mission lifecycle:

  • concept
  • design and development
  • commissioning and demonstration
  • operations

Our extensive interaction with different end-users enables us to translate user data needs into a viable concept, which we then turn into solid hardware and valuable end products. By making the right design choices from the start, we help you save time and resources.


Remote sensing is a powerful tool indeed. To tap into the hidden knowledge of remote sensing data, we help you define a custom concept for your particular needs.

Once you’ve defined the concept, it’s time to get creative. Our design and development team helps by defining an architecture of your end-to-end solution and its components.

During the remote sensing system’s initial operations, we help validate and demonstrate its functionalities following a well-defined commissioning plan.

To help turn your data into valuable information products, VITO can offer in-house, cloud-based or complete turnkey processing solutions.

Applications and Data Products & Services Used

  • agriculture
  • Vegetation

Achieving global food security has been high on the political agenda for years. It was included in the first of eight UN Millennium Development Goals “to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger”.
This requires global, independent, timely and qualitative information and monitoring.

How much pressure does our planet endure and how can we minimize it? Land is an essential natural resource - for humanity and all terrestrial ecosystems. But while resources are strictly finite, human demands are not. Today, this leads to events such as deforestation, drought and the loss of wildlife . Both public and private organizations play a crucial role in the preservation of our ecosystems, where understanding is the first step.
