AI-powered algorithms to prepare and analyse Earth Observation data
The Herd is a set of AI-powered algorithms designed to facilitate Earth Observation data analysis. It comprises three elements – data preprocessing techniques, approaches to spatial resolution enhancement of image data, and data analysis algorithms.
The Herd fully supports the EO processing chain – from optical data acquisition, through data preparation and manipulation, up to data classification, segmentation, unmixing, compression, and much more.
All key elements of The Herd were designed to be used both on Earth and on-board the satellite – they fit FPGA processors and are compatible with the Xilinx-based Data Processing Units. The full power of The Herd can be unchained in high-dimensional data analysis – we handle hyperspectral, multispectral, and time-series data.
The Herd is part of the Smart Mission Ecosystem – hardware, software, and AI-powered algorithms designed to complete your mission.
The Herd will be used in the Intuition-1 mission, which is planned for launch in 2022.
Intuition-1 is a 6U-class satellite with a data processing unit – Leopard – enabling on-board data processing acquired via a hyperspectral instrument with spectral resolution in the range of visible and near-infrared light.
