Symbios Project Teams are truly global, comprising consultants and technical experts from the USA, Europe, Japan, South East Asia and Australia as required. In response to specific project requirements, our consulting network can access the very best expertise in industry, academic departments, government agencies, military bodies, and defence research organisations.
Our approach ensures levels of relevant expertise and flexibility which can deliver maximum cost-effectiveness for the client.
Symbios is capable, dependable, and impartial, and our consultants have a distinguished record of success in major projects.
Our business is research, consulting, and programme support. Our consultants have experience in a broad range of disciplines, in particular:
Space Systems: spanning a multitude of studies conducted in the fields of Earth observation satellites, telecommunication satellites, and navigation systems, as well as combinations thereof – such as for vessel tracking systems and fleet management. Earth observation is a particular strength, both in the public and private sectors, and across a diversity of applications.
Geographic Information Systems: in particular their applications for use of remotely-sensed and environmental data for both commercial, military, and governmental use.
Global Environment: our experience includes technical analysis in support of policy development – for example considering data requirements for treaty verification, PR support for high profile publications and materials, and conference planning and assistance. Symbios has prepared keynote reports for many of the major policy milestone events – including the 1992 Rio Conference, and the 2015 Paris Climate Conference.
Defence: much of our work has been conducted for, or in association with, military organisations and is related to defence applications, such as ocean surveillance or high resolution imagery collection for intelligence purposes.
Symbios clients are typically major public and private sector organisations involved in the development and operation of large and complex programmes – such as satellite missions, data systems, or communication networks, or in the definition of policy and procedures in support of such programmes. The demands of these programmes have required our support at every stage of the project cycle, including:
- strategy and policy support
- financial and market analysis
- technology trend surveys
- regulatory reviews
- programme planning and support
- technical studies
- “state of the art” reviews for specific countries or regions
- applications development
- international liaison, collaboration building, and promotion
- promotional and educational material development, such as websites and brochures, including for use at the highest political levels.
Symbios has published the 2016 update of the EO Handbook and associated database of EO missions, instruments and measurements. The full text and databases of Earth observation satellite missions and instruments and their applications is available on-line at www.eohandbook.com.
