ACS has been active for many years in projects of research and development, with which it has consolidated various partnerships in the context of initiatives financed by the European Union.

In July 2002, ACS inaugurated in Matera the new Centre of Research and Development, in order to explore, in a more specific and a deeper way, the application of technologies developed in the field of Space and Defense, and in wider areas, with more economic and social impact such as, medicine, artificial vision, robotics, environment control.

ACS has participated in a series of research projects for the use of images from satellite for the detection of Oil Slick. It is presently engaged in projects, such as RIADE for the study of desertification.

ACS has developed applications for the 3D navigation of environmental data. The project that has opened the way to this field of research is the system of visual analysis of the phenomenon called El Niño, realized for the European Space Agency, then consolidated in the VRES (Virtual Reality Earth-observation Study) project.

Some of the projects that ACS has participated are:
  • UrbEx
  • Ramses
