How next generation lasers are transforming business

09 October 2019

In 2017, the European Space Agency launched the Sentinel 5-p satellite as part of its advanced Earth observation programme, Copernicus. The technology on board allows humans for the first time to map dozens of otherwise invisible atmospheric pollutants and their effects on the planet, establishing facts about climate change that will be critical if there's to be meaningful agreement between nations to stop it.

Investment Continues To Flow Into Remote Sensing SmallSat Industry Even As Competition Intensifies

08 October 2019

Small satellites are playing an increasingly important role in the commercial market. Since 2013, new companies have introduced business models that use large fleets of small satellites to conduct Earth observation. Traditional remote sensing satellites like DigitalGlobe's WorldView-4 can cost upward of $450 million each. On the other hand, small remote sensing satellites can be built and launched for under $1 million.

25th Anniversary of the Space Shuttle Missions SIR-C/X-SAR

07 October 2019

Earth observers like to 'look' at the Earth with radar sensor systems. They allow high-precision images of the surface and have a great advantage over optical cameras: images can be taken not only in excellent visibility, but also in cloudy conditions, rain or at night. Research into space-based radar technologies has a long history. A milestone was the multi-frequency radar system SIR-C/X-SAR. 25 years ago, the Space Shuttle Endeavour flew around the world twice, in April and October 1994. It was the most advanced civil radar in Earth orbit at that time – and for Earth observation it was as big a step as the transition from black-and-white to colour film in photography.

No more blind zones with the Mosaic feature

17 September 2019

Undoubtedly the best case scenario while working with satellite imagery is to find the most suitable images for your use-case from, let's say, Sentinel-2 or Landsat-8, which reliably covers your area of interest (AOI); therefore allowing you to quickly get accurate and valuable data as a result of processing.
