In this applicationa area, EDI has two sub-directions, one related to Earth Observation and another one ralated to development of extremely precise timing technologies (<3ps) both for sattelite laser ranging and for spaceships (space grade electronics).

Our timers (projects ESA MPET, ESIF DalaS, SiLA) are used globally in SLR and in China JUNO (similar to CERN in Europe). We develop satellite image processing algorithms for applications in forestry, agriculture, natural resources monitoring (projects ESA DynLand, ESIF NevKlas, RONIN, WoodStock).
