LogicaCMG Wins ESA Contract
LogicaCMG, an information systems provider, won a contract with the European Space Agency (ESA) for a coastline charting system that will exploit Envisat radar images. Envisat is ESA’s flagship satellite for observing the Earth.
The contract is worth $1.2 million, and LogicaCMG will play a key a role in ESA’s CoastChart project. The company says CoastChart aims to provide hydrographic offices with a system that allows standard navigation charts to be updated with accurate coastline information derived from space-based observations.
