Swedish Space Corporation (SSC) and Geo-Insights (GI) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for collaborative activities regarding satellite ground station services on the Asia-Pacific market, ultimately expanding their businesses in the region.
The agreement will provide new possibilities for SSC and GI to serve their existing and future customers in Asia-Pacific, currently the fastest growing space market globally. The partners will co-operate to expand satellite ground systems and services in the region by sharing capacity and competence.

Leveraging on the strengths of its parent companies, GI offers geospatial analytics and value-added services based on satellite imagery data to address growing global demands for timely insights, and SSC is a premier supplier of ground stations and satellite operation services globally.
