What we do

Pinkmatter is a leading Earth Observation software company servicing the global market, with offices located in South Africa, Canada and Germany.

Founded in 2002, the company has specialised in the design and deployment of our FarEarth satellite ground station software as well as the development of innovative information extraction algorithms relating to a range of Earth Observation data. Prominent space and remote sensing agencies in Europe, North-America, Asia, Africa and Australia rely on FarEarth software for their daily operations.

Our ground station and data management software, the FarEarth software suite, is specifically designed to be mission and hardware agnostic. It encompasses antenna and satellite downlink scheduling, real-time high volume data processing and image streaming, as well as large data archiving and cataloguing.

Pinkmatter is recognised as a leader in the development of real-time processing and information extraction algorithms, delivering time critical warnings and event notifications derived from the on-the-fly analysis of multi-source earth observation data.

We also offer automated services for the processing and visualisation of earth observation imagery, including very high resolution elevation models, encroachment detection, feature counts, vegetation analysis as well as flood and fire monitoring.

Most recently, we provide world-class antenna hosting facilities at our favourably located site near Pretoria, South Africa.
