      [Via Satellite 11-24-2015] The Satellite Applications Catapult has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with JAMSS America Inc. (JAI) to create a framework of activities between the two organizations. Under the terms of the MOU, Catapult and JAI will cooperate to stimulate further commercialization of their respective space applications technologies and facilities. The agreement will have a particular view on delivering their products and services into business opportunities in the U.K., U.S., Japan and other international regions.

      “Looking ahead over the next 1-2 years, we’ve identified several major business opportunities to learn from each other and forge joint new business activities,” Stuart Martin, CEO of the Satellite Applications Catapult, said.

      Since its establishment in spring 2013, the Catapult has developed capabilities and facilities to offer public and private sector entities support to foster growth across global economies. This is achieved through the exploitation of satellite technologies and data for application on Earth, bringing together multi-disciplinary teams to generate ideas and solutions in an open innovation environment.

      JAI, which is a United States corporation based in Texas, is entering the MOU on behalf of itself, as well as the Global AIS on Space Station (“GLASS”) project collaborators. The company has proven capabilities and facilities to offer public and private sector entities future access to its GLASS data as broadcast from the International Space Station.
