Research and Development
Smartcom Software are very much a knowledge driven company, and these skills are used to good effect in a number of research and development projects, where we contribute our knowledge as part of a consortium. The projects may be supported by funding from organisations such as the European Space Agency, Galileo and SEEDA.
