Research & Development

Skytek has been at the leading edge of innovation, bringing the benefits of space technology back down to earth. Partnering with Nasa and the European Space Agency, our software is used on the International Space Station. Our satellite and data solutions for the insurance, security and emergency services sector leverage this commitment to the future. Today, our research continues, and we work to transform business with the latest cutting edge technologies.



The Earth Observation and Intelligence reporting we receive from Skytek's Satellite Club allows us to regularly monitor the condition of the insured vessels we have in Ukrainian ports.

As part of Aon's commitment to Data & Analytics, this InsurTech partnership is focused on using innovative technologies to enhance risk management practices. As part of our development partnership, we will be taking analysis beyond cargo and marine hull aggregation to also weave in business intelligence functionality using clients' own data.

By equipping our crews with the latest technology, we can avoid delays and ensure that injured parties are getting the best possible care. This system means that our firefighters have access to key plans on their way to incidents and at the scene of accidents.

The Skytek system is important to the Columbus module for three fundamental reasons. It ensures the safety of our astronauts, enhances the efficiency in which they carry out procedures and its use of XML technology will represent a cost-saving for ground personnel by making procedure changes easier to implement.
