Specialized in optical remote sensingof aquatic environments, from lakes to oceans

ARCTUS is a private R&D company providing research, development and applications in remote sensing, Earth Observation (EO) and Geographical Information System (GIS) technologies for governmental agencies, scientific communities and the general public. Our company is specialized optical remote sensing of aquatic environments, from lakes to oceans.

An Unique Tool

For more than a century, anthropic activities have been putting an everly increasing pressure on natural ecosystems. During the last decades, EO technologies have been revealed as a unique tool to detect changes in remote and often inaccessible regions. Remote sensing provides quasi-continuous georeferenced images of the Earth’s surface that can be used to monitor environmental changes, helping acquire a better understand of the relationships between the natural ecosystems, global changes and human activities.
