EOS Data Analytics founded by serial entrepreneur and philanthropist Dr. Max Polyakov, processed the first commercial images from EOS SAT-1, the initial satellite of the company’s EOS SAT constellation launched into a low Earth orbit on January 3, 2023.
EOS SAT is a constellation comprising seven small optical satellites designed to support the implementation of sustainable agriculture methods and forestland monitoring with high-quality data and analysis. EOS SAT-1 is a small optical agri-focused satellite that is able to monitor up to one million square kilometers daily using 11 agri-related bands.
Right after the launch, the EOSDA team successfully established stable communication with the satellite and started sending telemetry data to a ground station. The next task was to make sure that the onboard computer manages the data correctly both on the firmware and software levels. Finally, once all the tasks of the calibration and validation campaign were done and payload performance was commissioned, EOSDA obtained the first ready-to-use images provided by EOS SAT-1.
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 technical characteristics of the EOS SAT constellation allow addressing such issues of existing satellites as limited spectral capacities and low sensor resolution to help reach food security and advance with other pressing global challenges.
We remind that EOS Data Analytics was founded by Max Polyakov in 2016 and was one of the first to join the stalwarts of the NGO “Association Noosphere”. So we wish EOSDA new space achievements to solve Earth problems.
