About Noctosat

NOCTOsat is a spinoff from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and resulted from more than 20 years of research in advanced scientific instrumentation and astrophysics. In order to assist in light pollution research carried out by the Complutense University of Madrid, NOCTOsat developed software that produces full radiometric calibrated images. These calibrated images have been essential to research collaborations such as the Cities at Night project involving NASA, ESA and various research institutes.

NOCTOsat images have contributed to internationally acclaimed research that has been published in high impact scientific journals. We are convinced that the knowledge obtained through our calibrated images is valuable to society in general. Therefore, we want our data to be easily accessible to the public.

Furthermore, in order to make future research in the field of light pollution sustainable, part of the profit of this company will go to further research projects focused on understanding the impact of artificial lighting on the environment.
