Applied Research in Geomatics, Atmosphere, Nature & Space

ARGANS Ltd, based in Plymouth, is an independent industrial company of highly-skilled and innovative scientists and engineers working with remote sensing (airborne and satellite) data and geographical information systems (GIS) to map and monitor the marine, atmospheric and terrestrial environments. ARGANS specialises in satellite-based Earth Observation, whether satellite ground segment development or operations on behalf of satellite services industry and space agencies, whilst keeping a strong scientific expertise in remote sensing science in coordination with its parent company ACRI-ST, based in the South of France.

The company works with Space Agencies, in particular the European Space Agency (ESA) alongside UK, European and International partners (companies, research institutes and universities). The launch of the ESA COPERNICUS missions with the SENTINEL constellation of satellites in 2014/2015, and beyond, as well as nationally funded and commercial missions provide many business opportunities. The UK involvement in space business is also growing with the government expecting the UK global market share to increase from 6 to 10 percent by 2030.
