We listen to you and build solutions inspired by multiple sectors, capitalising on space assets such as GNSS & Earth Observation, and people power.


We love our work and learning new ways to approach challenges. We're about connecting people with technologies to improve our lives and our environment.


Smart, beautiful, environmentally sensitive design, with particular attention to product life cycle evaluation.
