General Information


Xerra is a paper-less company. All documents and publications that we produced are designed to be read digitally, to minimise the impact we have on our planet.


Xerra wouldn’t be here without seed funding from the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment’s Regional Research Institutes Initiative. We are grateful for the opportunity to use this funding to help increase the use of Earth observation data throughout New Zealand through innovative research and development and products that put valuable insights into the hands of decision-makers.

A sincere thank you to the team at MBIE and all of the individuals, organisations and teams who developed the concept for Xerra (formally the Centre for Space Science Technology) and brought the organisation into existence. Xerra wouldn’t be here without your support, time, effort and foresight.

The following organisations played a pivotal role in the development of the concept proposal and original Xerra business case.

Intellectual Property

We are committed to free and open data and information, whilst ensuring Xerra remains financially viable and we meet our legal obligations to organisations from whom we receive IP or to whom we provide IP.
