Skytek Celebrates 20 Years in Space Innovation
Skytek’s journey began in Ireland, where we initially provided instruction manuals for astronauts. Over time, our expertise evolved into the creation of the International Procedural Viewer system, a critical tool used by all astronauts aboard the International Space Station and soon to be implemented on the lunar Gateway.
However, our ambitions extended beyond space. Returning to Earth, we infused the insurance industry with innovation through the integration of real-time satellite imagery and sophisticated data analytics. Today, we’re at the forefront of merging these two domains, pioneering the utilisation of space data and analytics to transform risk assessment, underwriting, and claims handling. Whether in property or cybersecurity, our solutions span diverse sectors, all united by a singular goal: to foster predictability, resilience, and security in the future.
Two decades represent more than just a milestone; they serve as a launching point for our continued journey. We are proud to have earned recognition from both ESA and NASA for our outstanding innovation, a testament to our unwavering dedication to excellence. With offices spanning Europe, the USA, and Bermuda, our global presence underscores our commitment to effecting change on an international scale. As we commemorate twenty years of success, we eagerly anticipate the next chapter, brimming with fresh partnerships, groundbreaking discoveries, and an enduring commitment to shaping a brighter future—both on Earth and beyond the stars.
We are the pioneers in merging space technology and (re)insurance to revolutionise the industry.
Our cutting-edge solutions harness real-time satellite data and advanced data analytics to provide a comprehensive view of risks across all lines of business, including property, cyber, marine, and beyond.
Stay ahead of the competition with accurate risk aggregation monitoring, proactive underwriting support, and efficient claims handling.
Our company has unparalleled expertise in the Space environment, working in close cooperation with the European Space Agency, EUMETSAT and NASA. It has also developed intelligent software solutions for other industries, including, Aerospace, Defence and Security.

Born in space, Skytek's technologies are used in the most demanding environments imaginable.
Skytek has decades of experience and a proven track record of developing software for the International Space Station. We look forward to working with Skytek as we send astronauts back to the Moon and beyond. The ground components of the software will also help to make ISS operations even more efficient.
The Skytek system is important to the Columbus module for three fundamental reasons. It ensures the safety of our astronauts, enhances the efficiency in which they carry out procedures and its use of XML technology will represent a cost-saving for ground personnel by making procedure changes easier to implement.
The Earth Observation and Intelligence reporting we receive from Skytek's Satellite Club allows us to regularly monitor the condition of the insured vessels we have in Ukrainian ports.
As part of Aon's commitment to Data & Analytics, this InsurTech partnership is focused on using innovative technologies to enhance risk management practices. As part of our development partnership, we will be taking analysis beyond cargo and marine hull aggregation to also weave in business intelligence functionality using clients' own data.
This is an excellent example of how space technology can benefit society. This technology has been rigorously tested under extreme situations for reliability. By harnessing these developments, huge leaps can be achieved in efficiency, safety and saving lives.
ICHEC is working with Irish technology company Skytek to provide an archive for the European Space Agency for Sentinel and other data. A portal will provide archived products, real-time data and on-demand processing for the public sector and commercial users in Ireland.
Following the ESA's support, it is rewarding to see a practical application of science to the insurance industry - and in turn, supporting re-insurers globally to have confidence in the protection of their assets.
The underwriting system developed by Skytek has become invaluable to our organisation. The software enhances our workflow and reduces the time and cost associated with complex claims handling.
By equipping our crews with the latest technology, we can avoid delays and ensure that injured parties are getting the best possible care. This system means that our firefighters have access to key plans on their way to incidents and at the scene of accidents.
Research & Development
Skytek has been at the leading edge of innovation, bringing the benefits of space technology back down to earth. Partnering with Nasa and the European Space Agency, our software is used on the International Space Station. Our satellite and data solutions for the insurance, security and emergency services sector leverage this commitment to the future. Today, our research continues, and we work to transform business with the latest cutting edge technologies.
