Recently, the topic of on-orbit data processing has been gaining in popularity, as it offers not only up to a 100-fold reduction in the data size without loss of relevant information but also the possibility of real-time application, which is key in crisis management. However, to be efficiently used, firstly, the delivered hyperspectral data require fast processing to enable their analysis in as close to real-time as possible.
What is on-board data processing?
Leopard will enhance decision-making for a range of space applications
On August 4, Global Spatial Technology Solutions (“GSTS”) an Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Maritime Analytics company announced that it had been selected by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) to develop space-based AI capability to support enhanced decision-making for a range of space applications focused on tasks using computer vision (such as would be used by exploration landers, rovers, robotics or Earth observation systems).
