Satellite assets are essential elements for numerous everyday life services, such as geoinformatics, mapping, resource utilization, positioning, weather forecasting and communications. Huld has participated in projects ranging from ice coverage analysis to forest fire detection, and from improved navigation positioning to algae monitoring. In fact, modern everyday life is fulfilled with data that is derived from satellites – navigation, weather forecasts and internet applications.
As these applications are so vast and touching almost everyone, it is of utmost importance to have satellites working flawlessly. Huld’s in-house expertise lies precisely in these demanding space applications, concerning real-time software in the satellite’s payload and platform. The design process of these complex data processing systems, instrument data simulators and test facilities are the core of our space industry competencies. We have been applying these competencies since 1989 in more than 150 European Space Agency (ESA) projects, working previously under the name Space Systems Finland (SSF), and since 2020 by the name Huld.
