The Expo is free and open to the general public. It focuses on technologies for climate, environment, cities and control of natural and anthropic risks, with a high attention to Space and Aerospace business, in particular solutions for EO. It looks at how these technologies can be beneficial to citizens’ life and at how they can help increasing safety from natural disasters, improving planning and management of territories, production and cultural and natural assets.

Saitec will be at the ETExpo to represent SURPRISE and to showcase the rendering of the Target Scanning System Bench and Control Unit, the core of Saitec’s R&D work in SURPRISE.
