Fish farms guided by Sentinels and the Cloud

(21 October 2016) A new service harnesses three decades of satellite observations of coastal zones made available through a cloud-based system to provide a rich information source for fisheries, one of our fastest growing sources of food.

GAF operationally provides ocean colour data to ESA

(Neustrelitz, Germany, October 27, 2016) GAF AG, the exclusive supplier in Europe of optical Indian Remote Sensing data from several missions, operationally provides ocean colour data from the Ocean Colour Monitor aboard the Indian Oceansat-2 in near real time to ESA.

Manchester wins award in European space innovation competition

Researchers from The University of Manchester have won a major award in Europe’s biggest space technology innovation competition.

Big Data Help Harvesting More

The German Ministry of Food and Agriculture is funding project “BigPicture – Diagnosis in the field: Big-Data-based determination of causes for satellite-image-derived and site-specific variations” carried out jointly by rasdaman GmbH, Bremen, and Spatial Business Integration GmbH, Darmstadt. Goal is helping farmers to optimize returns and to protect the environment through innovative Big Data technology.

Satellite Imagery Helps Verify ‘Zero Deforestation’ Commitments

Airbus Defence and Space, The Forest Trust (TFT) and SarVision developed the Starling service, which enables companies to provide evidence of how they’re implementing their No Deforestation commitments. Starling uses a combination of high-resolution optical satellite and radar imagery to provide unbiased monitoring of forest-cover change.

Potential Benefits of TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X

The German satellite duo TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X have consistently delivered one-of-a-kind Earth observation data since 2007 and 2010, hence shaping the international research landscape.

“One Atlas” – Airbus Defence and Space Launches the World’s Freshest Satellite Image Library

Airbus Defence and Space has launched One Atlas, a new satellite image basemap, which covers the earth landmasses with professional grade imagery. Available online 24/7 and refreshed within a 12-month period, One Atlas provides customers with easy access to cost effective, high-quality and homogeneous imagery.

Preparations complete for satellite launch scheduled for 16 September 2016

Ascend XYZ develops satellite-based wildlife monitoring tool for airports

Ascend XYZ has developed a service that allows airports to use satellite data to identify and manage nearby wildlife habitats, which can pose a risk to safety at takeoff and landing.

Planetek Italia and European Space Imaging support earthquake emergency operations with very high-resolution satellite images

(Munich, 26/08/16) European Space Imaging and its long-term partner Planetek Italia sprang into action to support disaster relief efforts by supplying the first available very high-resolution satellite imagery to emergency services and the media just hours after the recent earthquake struck Italy. The imagery was captured by the WorldView-2 satellite over the affected region showing the extent of the damages caused. The high-resolution imagery was immediately made available to the Italian Emergency Services.

Opportunities and Challenges in Emerging Applications for UV, Visible & IR Remote Sensing

Remote sensing first developed in the 1880s when Sir Walther Noel Hartley described the strong UV absorptions between 200 and 300 nm in the atmosphere due to ozone. Developing steadily since then, with particular surges of progress during the two World Wars, remote sensing techniques now contribute to many aspects of life and utilize several regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. The major ones are the UV / Vis / IR (ultraviolet, visible, and near- infrared) region (< 3 μm wavelength) which measure reflected solar energy, and the mid- infrared, thermal-infrared, and microwave regions (> 3 μm wavelength) which measure emitted radiation from the Earth’s surface and atmosphere.

New map of world vegetation reveals substantial changes since 1980s

A botany researcher at New Zealand’s University of Otago and colleagues have developed a new system to map the world’s “biomes” – large-scale vegetation formations – that will provide an objective method for monitoring how vegetation reacts as climate changes.

Airbus Defence And Space's UK-DMC2

Seven years ago another satellite was launched and added to the foreboding named constellation, Disaster Monitoring Constellation (DMC) otherwise called the Earth observation satellite, UK-DMC2.
