UK ‘New Space’ pioneers will develop novel technologies to speed-up processing of high-quality images and video recorded from space

 

Earth-i today announced that a consortium it is leading has received a grant from the Centre for Earth Observation Instrumentation (CEOI), funded by the UK Space Agency.

Eduard Vazquez, Director of Research for Cortexica, said:

“This project is about opening up space by delivering industry-ready technology into the hands of companies and governments. On-board video processing marks a major step change, as it will allow more sophisticated data and analytics to be transmitted efficiently, bringing a new range of video applications for businesses globally.”
