Chelys was established in 2002 and its core business focuses on software development and supplying services in the Earth Observation sector as a provider of processing stations for Earth observation satellites. In the beginning our personnel worked on the development, integration and maintenance of the ESA/Envisat PDS (payload data segment) on behalf of Thales Alenia Space, and then on the development of test tools and integration of the Eumetsat/EPS GS (ground segment). These experiences allowed us to become specialized in satellite data management and to concentrate on real time satellite (raw) data processing, data quality control, image generation, projection and mosaics (composite satellite images).
Our main product, Satellite Rapid Response System, a multimission real-time data processing and quality control system that is able to simultaneously process data coming from several different missions. It can be used to process data from the following satellite instruments:
The SRRS system used by ESA, MIRAVI, has been installed in all Envisat satellite acquisition stations and has been delivering thousands of images per month since June 2006, processing the Envisat/MERIS Full Resolution raw data as soon as they are acquired.
Our current areas of activity are:
