Our mission is to provide high quality geo-information services and IT solutions mainly based on satellite data. For our clients we offer a comprehensive and long-term support in developing their activities.
Wasat’s management team is comprised of experts with multi-year professional background in satellite applications and IT sectors. The company cooperates with many universities and research institutions in Poland and abroad, it is equipped with the state-of-the-art software and research infrastructure and it provides clients with advisory services and training possibilities.
Bartosz graduated in management from the University of Gdańsk and received postgraduate diplomas in satellite applications domain, he was awarded with fellowships from the British Council and ESA. As a manager he worked in the Polish Space Research Centre and in Polspace. Bartosz was a member of the EU Space Advisory Group and is a Board member of the Polish Space Agency. He is an expert in economics of satellite applications and in use of Earth Observation in agriculture and archaeology.
Remote Sensing Department Manager
Dominik graduated in geography from University in Lublin and completed postgraduate studies in remote sensing and GIS at the Military University of Technology in Warsaw. As a GIS expert he worked for several years in companies and public institutions in Poland. Since 2011 Dominik has been leading satellite imagery processing and analysis in Wasat, with a focus on agriculture, archaeology and environmental protection.
Navigation and Geoinformation Department Manager
Daniel holds degrees in IT and geodesy from the University of Olsztyn where he received a governmental award for his Master thesis. He was employed as an geoinformation expert in companies in Poland and in Ireland. Since 2010 Daniel has been leading software development projects in Wasat. He is an expert in satellite data management, mobile mapping, GNSS and indoor navigation.
Remote Sensing Department
Department’s staff develops methods and algorithms that form the backbone of services offered to the agricultural and environmental protection sectors and to archaeologists. The team acquires advanced knowledge and technical skills during implementation of R&D projects, and through contacts with experts from the European Space Agency. This results in a high-quality work as well as in many scientific publications and conference presentations.
Navigation and Geo-informatics Department
The Department creates new methods of searching, processing, distribution and visualization of satellite data. It also develops mobile mapping applications, solutions for autonomous navigation of planetary rovers and for indoor navigation. The tasks are implemented using the effective software development methodology based on standards promoted by international organizations.
Membership in EARSC
By decision of the Board of the European Association of Remote Sensing Companies (www.earsc.org) our company was accepted as a full member of the organisation. The mission of EARSC, headquartered in Brussels, is to foster the development of the European EO geo-information services industry.
New IT project for ESA
We have started a new contract from the European Space Agency that is aimed at development and adaptation of solutions based on Jupyter Notebook for processing Earth Observation data in a cloud environment. The products will support developers of satellite data exploitation platforms and EO scientists in an efficient creation of data processing algorithms and in visualisation of information or services.
More publications on the use of remote sensing in archaeology
Two new scientific papers co-authored by Wasat staff were published recently. The papers present results of the project ArchEO (Archaeological application of Earth Observation techniques), which was financed by the European Space Agency and jointly realised by Wasat and Institute of Archaeology at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan. One of its main objectives was to assess the usefulness of satellite imagery in archaeological applications in Central Europe.
New contract with ESA
We started to implement a contract from the European Space Agency within the project entitled “Earth Observation for South East Europe (EO4SEE)”. The project is jointly performed by an international consortium of seven companies and research institutions (http://pathfinder.terrasigna.com).
The objective of the project is to develop a technical infrastructure that would enable to store and process large amounts of satellite data and products relevant for the countries of South East Europe (Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Moldova and Bulgaria). Simultaneously, several services on different topics (use cases) will be implemented. Wasat is responsible for one of them: our experts will develop algorithms for automatic classification of cultural landscapes. The process will be based on analyses of satellite data available under the Copernicus program. The developed tool will be used mainly by experts on cultural heritage protection (employees in governmental institutions, researchers, archaeologists). Inventory of the current state of a landscape and detection of changes will enable the analyses of landscape and cultural context of heritage protection, and will facilitate an effective identification of threats and relevant countermeasures.
