Omanos Analytics is a space technology start-up delivering space data knowledge to support the narratives of communities across the globe, presenting data in tailored, accessible formats in order to reveal impact on local environments and communities.
Selected by the UK Government’s Satellite Applications Catapult for Business Sprint support in 2017, the company has provided support to communities from Guinea to Cambodia, working with a range of international NGOs on issues including forced displacement, destruction of livelihoods, and environmental degradation.
Omanos’ work has been used in a variety of contexts including to help ensure corporate accountability for mining operations funded through the World Bank’s private-sector arm, the International Finance Corporation (IFC). With funding from the European Space Agency’s EO for Science and Society programme, Omanos is building up its systems for wider commercial deployment.
