3 levels of offer to fulfil your needs


Technical & Scientific studies

We have a dedicated pool of experts (mathematics, physics, computer sciences, image processing…) who can deliver high level technical & scientific studies from concept to prototype.

Ideas and Creativity

Our approach

Our teams are composed of talented engineers and PhDs from European engineering schools and universities. They carry out studies with the excellence of research labs (high scientific level) taking into account industrial requirements (robustness, quality, IPR, reporting, methodology…).

INGRID framework

Fields of interest

We address a wide range of technical & scientific challenges related to earth observation, GIS or computer vision & robotics. These could include; physical scene & measurement simulation, optimisation and acceleration of algorithms, LiDAR, Radar, hyper-spectral image processing, big data architecture, geodata visualisation….

Technical and scientific studies

From concept to prototype

We have a robust methodology to carry out studies : (i) what is the technical need? (ii) what is the state of the art? (iii) find & propose solutions, (iv) define a validation & experimentation protocol, (v) prototype a solution, (vi) implement the validation & experimentation protocol and (vii) provide documentation.

Software development & System integration

We have delivered hundreds of projects from software development to full system integration, underpinned by robust management and quality approaches.

Software development

Software technologies

We develop solutions for most platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac OS). Magellium staff are highly skilled in a variety of programming technologies including C++/C#, Java, HTML/XML, Java Script…We have experts to integrate and customise commercial or open source solutions for GIS or databases (ArcGIS ESRI, ORACLE…).

Development cycle

Development life cycle

Based on customer requirements, we have the ability to manage projects through the well-known V-Model cycle or we can use agile methods (i.e. SCRUM) that promote adaptive planning, evolutionary development and delivery, a time-bounded iterative approach and encourages rapid and flexible response to change.

Continuous integration

Quality management platform

Over time, we have built a comprehensive quality management platform designed to embed a continuous integration (CI) approach in all our projects. Our systems also includes: automatic validation & verification, code repository & build, source code documentation… We rely on a dedicated IT infrastructure running our own tools or off-the-shelf solutions.

Turnkey solutions & products

Based on our experience and continuous R&D programmes, we develop and distribute specific software packages for remote sensing or image processing. We also propose comprehensive solutions for advanced data analysis.

Magellium has been selected to develop and maintain, to industrial standards, innovative R&D projects for French institutions such as CNES, French MoD or IGN. These solutions provide valuable capability in a wider commercial context and will be subject to specific licensing schemes.
