Our many projects in the works at Quasar offices aren’t keeping us from interacting at important expositions, shows, and symposiums; our attendance at the Living Planet Symposium in Milan, Italy in the middle of May proves just that!
The European Space Agency’s 2019 Living Planet Symposium focused on two main points: how Earth Observation contributes to science and society, and how disruptive technologies are altering the traditional Earth Observation landscape, which is ultimately allowing new opportunities for public and private sector interactions.
Though Quasar attended the LPS strictly as an interested visitor, our representation at the event still allowed for educational discussions and productive input regarding Earth Observation. Attending such events allows us to further understand what we, as a company, can do to contribute to the progress of Earth Observation as well as to aid in the prevention efforts taken for the sake of preserving life on Earth.
The main purpose behind our attendance at the LPS was specifically for the Earth Observation Exploitation Platform Common Architecture session held during the celebration of the symposium; however, this didn’t stop us from enjoying the rest of the symposium once the session was complete.
Our Quasar representative present at the LPS stated that the talks regarding climate change, plastic in the oceans, changes to Earth as a whole, missions of Earth Observation, and digital agriculture were all extremely interesting and engaging. Additionally, the poster sessions also sparked interesting discussions and problem-solving inquiries. Posters of note included those related to Earth Observation, Radar, and Posidonia Oceanic missions.
