SPRINT provides businesses in the UK with funded access to universities with space expertise and facilities. This enables enterprises to accelerate their innovative product development lifecycles. The partnership will enable Cyient to identify new business opportunities, to lower its product development costs and to offer cutting edge geospatial solutions with higher precision.

The partnership will also assist Cyient in accessing industry experts from various academic institutions and SMEs across the UK for collaborative space data and technology projects.

Commenting on the strategic partnership, Matt Wood, Director of Sales for Geospatial at Cyient, said: “As a business, we are focused on innovation, and developing skill sets and expertise in areas such as geospatial data creation and analysis, earth observation data and machine learning algorithms.

"To enable us to evolve our business, an academic and commercial partnership is a natural fit. So, the new partnership with SPRINT will allow us to strike up a dialogue with academic institutions and SMEs in SPRINT’s network, and gain access to their cutting-edge technology, skill sets, and expertise for potential collaborations.”

Ross Burgon, Head of the national SPRINT programme added: “Working with Cyient will help the company achieve its business growth strategies through collaborations with academic establishments and businesses within the SPRINT network.

"It will also help SPRINT succeed in our vision of growing a vibrant and sustainable UK space ecosystem through collaborations and partnerships.”
