Earth Observation in the New Space Age

June 15, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am +04
The “NewSpace” age has been a great disruptor of the earth observation industry ecosystem over the last few years, more so in the last three years with several new startups announcing plans to develop constellations of microsatellites with the ability to provide very high spatial resolution data. This competition is significantly accelerating innovation in both hardware and software, thereby contributing to the enhancement of the quality of data. The amount of high-resolution data is significantly increasing both from optical and radar satellites. Along with the spatial resolution, the concept of constellations has greatly improved the temporal resolution of the data and this is expected to get better with the launch of new constellations and adding more satellites to the existing constellations such as Planet, ICEYE, Satellogic, etc. In parallel to the data explosion, the field of machine learning has gone through a significant disruption due to the improving hardware capabilities and the exponential growth of deep learning architectures. This is greatly supporting the processing of the large amount of data becoming available from the satellites. In line with these developments, this talk explores how data and the corresponding processing architectures are expected to be handled in the future with an outlook on opportunities that can be created.
