Company Profile

SpacEarth Technology is a spin-off of the the Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia. We have a team of engineers, physicists and geologists with a long involvement in research and business management.

We design and develop applications, tools, software, hardware components and products for Aerospace, Maritime and Environment sectors in cooperation with the major European and Italian industries, organizations, universities and research centres.

It has long standing experience in the use of GNSS receivers and algorithms development for the monitoring, forecasting, mitigation and analysis of ionospheric disturbances and their effect on high-accuracy positioning. SpacEarth Technology is the owner of the international patent “Method for forecasting ionosphere total electron content and/or scintillation parameters” (2015) able to feed mitigation algorithms aiming at improving the accuracy of real-time GNSS precise positioning techniques (RTK, NRTK, and PPP) under harsh ionospheric conditions. This can contribute to improve the scenarios for the use of GNSS and SBAS (EGNOS) in several fields of application.

SpacEarth Technology has recently completed a feasibility study funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) for an innovative service offering a very accurate positioning service for the maritime market in the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions.

We are also involved in the BELS+ project, funded by the European GNSS Agency under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 program, which aims to develop GNSS markets for EU companies and helps EU GNSS applications gain a foothold in Southeast Asia.

On the Precision Farming subject, SpacEarth Technology is currently developing in Brazil (Sao Paulo area) the "Scintillation Mitigation Service", with the support of Brazilian universities and local companies.

    GNSS high accuracy positioning service: a patented service able to forecast minutes in advance the ionospheric parameters and provide a mitigation solution. It provides high accuracy GNSS services and overcome economic losses due to large positioning errors under disturbed ionosphere for commercial applications such as precision agriculture, mining, dredging, constructions, offshore operations, aeronautics, land management and geodesy/land surveying.

    AIS ionosonde (Advanced Ionospheric Sounder): is an efficient and simple instrument capable to investigate Earth ionosphere. Designed and carried out employing the most advanced radar techniques, it allows to get an ionogram with only 250 W peak power, keeping dimensions and weight low with respect to similar instruments, and above all the reliability of the measurement due to the usage of coded pulses. Various specimens of AIS are currently working in ionospheric observatories placed in different continents.

    IONOspheric Ray Tracing (IONORT): is an applicative software tool package for calculating a three-dimensional ray tracing of high frequency (HF) radio waves in the ionospheric medium.

    Monitoring Infrastructures: SpacEarth Technology owns  the patent for an optical-inertial accelerometer, a speckle-tracking telesensor using that accelerometer and a method of correcting the vibrational noise. Recently two prototypes have been built.
