Consortium partners

The mapKITE team comprises nine partners: six European SMEs (GN, TS, GI, ALT, CUA and UV), one seasoned company in aerospace, defence and navigation technologies (DME), two research organisations (EPF and the UNE) and a Brazilian SME (EM). The partners can be classified otherwise: three R&D companies (GN, UV, CUA and DME), two research organisations (EPF, UNE) and four providers of geoinformation services (TS, GI, ALT and EM). These figures show a balance between technology, service and research capabilities and a balance between small and large. Last not least, it is the first time that the European companies ALT, CUA and UV and the Brazilian company EM participate in a European research project.
