The first spin-off company of University of Rome Tor Vergata
Profile

GEO-K was founded in April 2006 as the first spin-off company of the Tor Vergata University of Rome. It is the commercial vehicle through which the scientific know-how developed by the University’s Earth Observation Laboratory is made available to public and private initiatives in the form of user-oriented applications.

Right after its birth, GEO-K was incubated within ESA-ESRIN where new technology, based on artificial neural networks for the processing of satellite data, was further developed.

In 2007, GEO-K was awarded the ISO 9001:2008 certification for “Design and development of satellite data processing components for GeoInformation production.

Over the last few years GEO-K has been involved in contracts with national (ISPRA, ASI) and international (ESA) institutions for the exploitation of EO data. Furthermore, in the ESA Fuegosat Synthesis study, GEO-K has contributed, together with the University of Valencia, to defining a new TIR space-mission. The company has also acquired experience in providing educational sessions in EO, mainly addressing companies or technical groups.

Often GEO-K exports its technology and know -how to other fields of engineering not strictly related to EO. In the past, consultancy has been provided for Automatic Incident Detection problems, Solar Energy Devices and Electromagnetic Pollution analysis.
