As a part of VITO, an independent research and technology leader, VITO Remote Sensing offers expertise, knowledge, data, services and solutions in Earth observation to let you see and make use of the added value of remote sensing, a key enabler in our space economy. From user needs to technology and end-to-end EO support, VITO Remote Sensing provides the insights you need for diverse applications such as agriculture, vegetation, water & coast, climate, security and infrastructure.

Thanks to more reliable, more performant and more accessible data we can observe things and measure them better than ever. That is exactly what Remote Sensing can bring to you:

We know how we can measure water quality from space, how to define new satellite missions to monitor global vegetation on a daily basis, how to predict crop yields by combining multiple data sets, how to reach out to local users in developing countries, and much more.

VITO Remote Sensing doesn’t only observe the world, it’s also very much a part of it.

From Belgium to Italy or China to Africa, our team serves an expansive network of customers and partners. With more than 80 national and international partners and active in more than 115 countries we offer Earth Observation solutions for both public organizations and industry.

VITO Remote Sensing is also a proud member of Copernicus Relay and Copernicus Academy. With massive amounts of satellite data at your disposal, we are ready to assist you in using and integrating Copernicus or other satellite data products.


VITO is responsible for a STARGATE pilot study in the temperate maritime climatic zone, i.e. Flanders in Belgium, with the overall goal to balance increased demands for productivity with environmental concerns and climate resilience using big data analysis that includes Copernicus Sentinel satellite data products, soil and topography, meteorological observations, agricultural statistics, parcel information, and climate data from
