Our Expertise

We promote Sustainability

Downstream Sustainability

Space activities provide means to improve life on our planet. With our know-how on the space environment we can help keeping space clean, orbits sustainable and satellites alive.

Geomagnetic surveying methods are used to find minerals and metals. These are key materials that drive the energy transition. Geomagnetism is one of our core competences.

Upstream Sustainability

As a lean company, we have a small footprint. Wind energy fuels our virtual servers and their heat is not wasted, but used. We are enthusiastic about our new photovoltaic system and favor environmental friendly means of transportation. As often, less is more.

As a company with a global approach, we see merit in engaging with local and regional suppliers all over the world. We believe in talent and in empowering people everywhere on our planet.
