Rezatec selected as one of five UK ‘New Space’ companies for Harwell Space Cluster event attended by HRH The Duke of York.

Rezatec, the industry-leading UK geospatial data analytics company, has been selected as one of five companies to feature in the ‘New Space Showcase’ event at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus – home of the UK’s space sector – taking place on Thursday 14th June 2018 and to be attended by His Royal Highness The Duke of York.

As members of the world-renowned Harwell Space Cluster – Rezatec are part of an 80-strong group of private, public and academic organisations focused on democratising the Space market and supporting the UK Space Sector as it aims for a 10% share of the global market by 2030.

Rezatec has been based at Harwell campus since 2012 and moved into a brand new global headquarters on the site in March 2018. In that time, the company has been able to attract a wide range of highly skilled employees ranging from Earth Observation specialists to Data Scientists, and has grown from 5 to 37 employees, raising several million pounds worth of investment in the process.

“Having been a part of the Harwell Space Cluster for over 5 years now, we are naturally keen to strengthen our presence on campus to capitalize on the commercial advantage of being amongst 80 + other space related organisations,” said COO Philip Briscoe.

To coincide with this high-profile event, Rezatec is making two announcements highlighting the innovative nature and diverse scope of work that it is undertaking around the world:

Compass Project, Mexico

An International Partnership Programme with the UK Space Agency, helping Mexican farmers improve sugar cane and wheat yields through the analysis of satellite data via a mobile application.

Rezatec and Eden Project partnership secures ESA funding to promote benefits of Earth Observation (EO) data for small-scale land owners.

Global leaders in geospatial data analytics, Rezatec, working in partnership with the Eden Project, an educational charity, have successfully been awarded funding from the European Space Agency’s Business Applications to demonstrate the benefits of Earth Observational data as part of a major public exhibition.

Invisible Worlds, a new permanent exhibition at the Eden Project, introduces the interconnectedness of life and the Earth’s varied environments at all scales, exploring how life shapes, and is shaped by, an invisible ‘Life Support System’. The joint activity involves the curation of an area within the exhibition, dedicated to the impact of geospatial analytics. The exhibition aims to highlight how the interpretation of Earth Observation data can provide innovative and alternative landscape intelligence, with a particular focus on forests and agricultural land.

“Eden is pleased to be working with Rezatec and this project will serve as a great opportunity to bring the good work that is being done by ESA and Rezatec to the forefront of public consciousness. The exhibit will serve as a great shop window and has the potential to inspire further action both commercially and within the public sector.” explained Gabriella Gilkes, Project Lead, The Eden Project.

“Rezatec is really excited to be working with such an inspirational organisation as the Eden Project made possible through funding from ESA’s Business Applications. Satellite-derived data analytics is highly relevant to addressing global challenges in response to increasing demands being placed on land and its efficient use, which are being fuelled by growing populations, water and food security challenges and more efficient natural resource management,” commented Tim Vallings, VP Global Resources, Rezatec.

Rezatec and the Eden Project, drawing upon their respective areas of expertise, will explore how the analytics generated for the exhibit could benefit individual growers or forest owners with small areas under management, by providing commercially valuable and actionable decision support tools accessed via a self-service, digital platform. In addition, these analytics could also be provided as an operational service to other creative installations at relevant institutions and organisations around the world.
