CO.RI.S.T.A. (Consortium of Research on Advanced Remote Sensing Systems) is a non-profit
was formed in Naples in 1988 aiming to promote close cooperation between universities and industry
related to aerospace remote sensing. It deals with the design, prototype development and application
advanced sensors for remote sensing that can be installed on ground, air and space platforms
aircraft, helicopters and satellites). It conducts research and prototype development in the field of
sensing systems, also including aspects of their control in operation and processing of data.
areas of technical expertise within the remote sensing, range from the definition and simulation of
airborne sensors and of prototypes of satellite subsystems to the development of satellite data
algorithms. CO.RI.S.T.A. acts as a link between the objectives of industrial development and those
scientific research of its members. It employs its own team of researchers and its laboratory is part
