Scanning Earth, saving lives

A high-speed camera for monitoring vegetation from space and combating famine in Africa is being adapted to spot changes in human skin cells, invisible to the naked eye, to help diagnose skin diseases like cancer. In fact, the extraordinary digital infrared sensor from ESA’s Proba-V vegetation-scanning satellite is being adapted for several non-space applications.

Earth Observation for all!


In the first of a regular column, Terri Freemantle outlines recent developments in remote sensing at the Satellite Applications Catapult – an independent body that is playing a key role in supporting the Government’s objective to grow Britain’s share of the World space economy to £40bn by 2030
