Space Imaging Middle East (SIME) exhibited at the international society for photogrammetry and remote sensing (ISPRS) fair that was held in IstanbulTurkey. SIME participation falls in line with the company’s strategy to be at the forefront of international technical events.
To emphasize its presence the company gathered under its wing some of the most prestigious players in the regional and the global remote sensing industry. From the government sector, both of King Abdul Aziz City of Science and technology (KACST) and DLR The German Aerospace Center are exhibiting on the SIME stand.
“We are very proud of our global technology program where we rely on partnerships to enrich our product and services portfolio” said Mohamed El-Kadi. He added, “We also always seek to promote our partners as we are promoting the company, and the ISPRS represents a salient example".
In addition to government agencies four other commercial companies were co-exhibiting on the SIME stand: European Space Imaging, SIME’S wholly owned subsidiary, GAF one of Europe’s leading providers of remote sensing and GIS solutions, Sanborn North America and Middle East for aerial photography, the latest addition to SIME's global partnership program. Each of the co-exhibitors took the opportunity to market its products and services. KACST promoted the Remote Sensing Arabia conference that will be held next December in Riyadh. GAF marketed to exhibition visitors the IRS-P6, the recently launched satellite.
In 1994 His Excellency the Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research issued decree number (51), 1994. The decree authorized the academy to run graduate course in accordance with the Federation Act no. (4), 1992. As of the academic year 1996 the academy opened its doors to welcome new students from the countries of the GCC. In the academic 1996-97 students from some Arab countries, like the Republic of Yemen and the State of Palestine, were admitted to the academy.
