António Sousa Franco

Dual Use Technologies Officer

António has a degree in Military Sciences and pursued his career path in the Defense area. Fifteen years ago, he took up the Cartography and Geographic Information Systems fields, ending up with a degree and a master’s in Geographic Engineering from the University of Sciences of the University of Lisbon. 

A specialist in the acquisition of data by Photogrammetric processes and Remote Sensing, he has, alongside his military career, numerous responsibilities and research projects in this technical field. One of his main interests is image analysis, having taken and coordinated various formations, which made him promptly accept the challenge of working in the space sector. 

When he puts his feet back on the ground, in addition to his family — he is a father of five children —, he likes to spend his time in woodworking and on walks in the countryside, always having a pile of unread books by his desk.
