The objective of the Intuition-1 mission is to perform Earth observation using a satellite equipped with a hyperspectral optical instrument and an on-board computer allowing for advanced data processing through convolutional neural networks.
The supercomputer on-board the Intuition-1 will enable for segmentation and classification of hyperspectral imagery right in Earth’s orbit.
Thanks to in-orbit processing of the collected imagery, at least 100 times less data must be transferred to the ground station. The end-users will thus have lower access time to any information gathered by the satellite that they find relevant. Images will be captured daily, which will allow for continuous monitoring during e.g. a flood.
The ground station used for communication with the future satellite will be constructed in Gliwice, at the same location as one of the two PW-Sat2 ground stations.
