Iguassu Software Systems (ISS), excels in design and development of technology software applications and in aerospace marketing consultancy for Latin America and central Europe. Its core business is with the European Space Agency (ESA) and other space customers. During the transition period before full ESA membership (PECS 2005-2008), ISS was the most successful Czech space company, having been awarded 6 contracts, 2 of which through participation in international competitive tenders. Since the Czech accession to the ESA convention at the end of 2008, ISS is again in the forefront - the only Czech company to be awarded more than one project (in fact 3) in the ESA Czech industrial incentive scheme in 2009 and the only one to win work in competitive tenders with Astrium D and EOX in 2010.

This success is based on company space experience going back to 1994 as the Czech subsidiary of Science Systems (SciSys) and the key staff having worked in space 5-35 years, including 12 years in ESA/ESOC.

ISS was established in Prague in 1994 as a Czech subsidiary of a UK software house. After the management buyout at the end of 1999 it became an independent Czech company, but it remained heavily internationally focused. All our highly qualified and experienced software engineers and consultants speak good English and most are highly mobile - having worked on sites in UK, Germany, Spain, Italy, Austria, Argentina, United States and elsewhere.

ISS works predominantly on space R&D projects, both from the Prague base and on sites of our partners or primes abroad. We participate in international consortia in aerospace and EU projects. At times ISS also provide our consultants on a time & material basis. The focus and the bulk of our space experience since the start of the Czech participation in ESA in 2005 has been on:

  • Satellite positioning technologies: including development of a new generation SISNeT server, number of professional and educational navigation tools and operating the 1st CEE EGNOS monitoring station. We are currently developing a real-time EGNOS performance monitoring system and an interference monitor system for GNSS reference stations (with Astrium D)
  • GRID technologies and efficient processing of earth observation data (e.g.SAR): including image information mining in time series project with ACS Italy, or the current project with EOX to co-develop an open standard online observation service.
