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