Telespazio to Perform Countrywide Survey in Costa Rica
Thursday, March 19, 2020 | Comments

Telespazio Argentina, a subsidiary of Telespazio and a joint venture between Leonardo (67%) and Thales (33%), was awarded a contract following an international tender in Costa Rica to perform an urban and rural cadastral survey of the country. The contract is worth $20 million and will last four years.

Under the contract, Telespazio Argentina will provide cadastral services across 50% of Costa Rica. Survey work will be performed on 1 million parcels of land starting July 2020 and, with the help of cartographic and satellite data, will involve gathering and cross-referencing cadastral and notarial data, on-site checks, dissemination campaigns, and the generation of digital cadastral maps with an associated database.

To date, the Republic of Costa Rica’s Registro Nacional has produced a cadastral map of 50% of the country's districts, with Telespazio Argentina contributing for 30% of the territory.

Satellite technology has numerous safety and security applications, including the monitoring of critical infrastructure, cultural heritage and environmental concerns such as deforestation and oil leaks from drilling platforms. Satellite data can also provide valuable information in support of precision farming and emergency management in the event of earthquakes, floods and fires. Telespazio's satellite data allows Leonardo to support the sustainable development of the region.
