Tokyo-based Axelpace Corporation announces a partnership with Broadband Systems Corporation (BSC) to provide Earth Observation Data from AxelGlobe, the Daily Earth Observation Platform, to African Nations.
BSC is engaged in the business of providing advanced information and Communication Technology (ICT) services based on broadband connectivity to citizens, communities, government and businesses in Rwanda and East Africa.
Axelspace and BSC signed the partnership agreement when BSC visited Japan to participate in the Japan-Africa Business Expo, held in August 2019 in Yokohama on the sidelines of the 7th Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7). Rwanda’s ICT Minister Paula Ingabires joined the parties during the signing ceremony.
This partnership led Axelspace to provide BSC with data from AxelGlobe. For the first project, the two partners plan to monitor the new international airport, currently under construction in the southeastern Bugesera District of Rwanda.
