New Earth-space technologies are capturing, analyzing and visualizing our Earth-space environment through unprecedented advances in sensors, platforms and systems. We are on the cusp of a technological revolution in our ability to sense and monitor our natural environment and built world — with widespread applications for humanity.

From the oldest science (astronomy) to the latest evolution of geomatics, University of Calgary researchers on the New Earth-space Technologies Research Strategy team are providing information that is constantly changing how we make decisions about our world.

Space missions

The University of Calgary is home to national and international leaders in space science, geomatics, communications and satellite systems. Our researchers have been involved in more than 20 space missions
