First images of EOS SAT-1 satellite processed by Deimos
24th May 2023 – The first image of EOS SAT-1 has been successfully processed within DEIMOS Ground Segment solution gs4EO.
EOS SAT-1 is the first of the 7-satellite EOS SAT agri-focused constellation powered by EOS Data Analytics. The satellite was launched in January 2023, and the first image, disclosed yesterday, has been produced as part of the initial commissioning activities.
The first satellite’s pan-sharpened images have a resolution of 1.5 meters and cover a total area of 2,550 square kilometers in the Spanish province of Segovia.
“The collaboration with EOSDA is a strategic step allowing us to bring our Earth Observation expertise in the development of this agro-focused constellation. We see a lot of potential in EOSDA’s vision for precision agriculture space-based services, and we believe our GS4EO solution is an excellent fit to efficiently operate the constellation’s massive data pipeline,” says Ismael López, Chief Executive Officer at Deimos.
Deimos implemented the initial version of the data production chain for EOS SAT-1 during 2022. In the months following the launch of the mission, Deimos has been qualifying the performances of the systematic image processing service and providing Commissioning support to fine tune it up to the best achievable quality.
“Deimos is providing essential support for our satellite-powered agricultural analytics efforts. With Deimos’ assistance, we are able to provide valuable data-driven insights for smarter farm management. Using satellite technology, we can provide information that drives recommendations to control vegetation, detect the spread of weeds and pests and optimize seeds and fertilizers. Throughout the growing cycle, we can use EOSDA’s remote-sensing data to predict yields and monitor historical and short-term weather patterns, providing customers with actionable information to improve their operations,’’ adds Artiom Anisimov, CEO of EOS Data Analytics.
Thanks to the modularity and configurability of the GS4EO product suite, on which EOS SAT data production service is based, Deimos was able to fast-track its deployment in less than 6 months, in time for EOS SAT first satellite launch and commissioning phase.
