Overview

The Satellite Applications Catapult has just started a project with the British Embassy in Colombia, funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), to improve Food Security in Colombia and Paraguay (IFSec). The main thrust of the Project is to promote the exploitation of Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 data in agriculture; and in the longer term, promote the related information services that could be provided by UK companies. The Catapult is currently also negotiating a similar project in Peru.

This opportunity requests an Expression of Interest (EoI) from companies that have, or might have in the future, an interest in developing and/or providing agricultural information services in Latin America, in particular with, but not limited to, Colombia, Paraguay and Peru.
