We simplify the adoption of geospatial data to enable people to act in an aware and timely manner, in order to live better and preserve the Earth.

Planetek Italia operates in many fields of application ranging from environmental and land monitoring to open-government and smart cities, engineering, utilities, agriculture, defence and security, as well as satellite missions and planetary exploration.

We provide solutions and products for Earth observation with satellite, aircraft and drone data. We deal with the continuous monitoring with satellite data of Earth's surface, infrastructures, worksites, urban dynamics, or marine coastal areas in support of decision-making and operational activities. We develop on-board software for satellites and data processing solutions for ground segment infrastructures. Our involvement in research and development activities supports the human exploration of the solar system. We develop Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) in compliance with INSPIRE as well as solutions for Smart City and complex systems to support decisions that exploit geographic information and Earth observation data, according to the new paradigms of Cloud and Software As a Service.

Our focus on innovation has recently generated Rheticus®, a cloud platform designed to provide accurate data and real-time information about our changing world for the public and private sectors working to preserve our planet and improve the quality of our lives. This new type of service has led to a decisive transformation of the business model in geo-information services and today represents the synthesis of Planetek Italia's skills and ability to produce high-value-added services.
