Starlab Ltd. is a private Research and Development company recently established as an independent enterprise by Starlab Barcelona S.L.. Starlab Ltd is an SME, well integrated within the existing UK Space industry structure. Our goal is to provide R&D solutions and services to institutional and private customers, and aim at bridging the gap between research and society through the development of novel solutions. Starlab Ltd is active in the Space sector on two fronts: technology and EO products/services.

Starlab's space area provides top-level technical consulting and added value EO services to many clients in Europe, and contributes significantly to several ESA technology programs. Our expertise covers modelling and simulation, image/signal processing for inversion and estimation, experimental campaign organisation, data processing and analysis, sensor design and implementation.

Starlab has designed and developed a GNSS/GNSS-R based instrument already in an operational phase, exploiting the L-band GNSS signal for Earth Observation purposes, namely for significant wave height and sea level, soil moisture monitoring and, less mature, biomass monitoring, for both ground based and airborne platforms, which demonstrate the determination of the company to ultimately serve the society pursuing the commercialisation of the products as final outcome if its R&D activities.


This project has received funding from the European GNSS Agency under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no. 641606.
