eOsphere was established in 2001 and is strongly focused on solving real remote sensing problems for a range of customers and end users. Key application areas include the provision of affordable ground receiving stations and the use of satellite borne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) techniques for sea ice monitoring, ship detection and the detection of targets through foliage. The eOsphere ground station receives and processes data from EOS Terra, Aqua MODIS, NPP and NPOESS satellites.
eOsphere has specialised in sea ice monitoring since it was established in 2001 and has worked with a wide range of customers including those in the oil and gas industry and fishermen operating in ice infested waters. eOsphere are active members of the Polar View network which is recognised by policy makers and user communities as the world's leading organisation for the operational, satellite-based monitoring of polar environments and the cryosphere.
The VxEos Ground System is eOsphere’s turnkey solution for EOS Terra and Aqua MODIS data reception ground system which has been successfully delivered to customers throughout the world..
Ice and foliage penetrating radar
eOsphere is leading research into low frequency radar techniques for exploration underneath ice and snow surfaces in the Antarctic and interplanetary space missions. It is also investigating tomography and polarimetric interferometry for target detection under forest canopies.
