Access to Intelligent Space Technologies
What is the mission of Aistech?
Aistech Space aims to improve the quality and standard of living on the planet by using space and its capacity to capture, manage, and transform data from Earth into continuous, recurring, and accurate information.
What does Aistech offer?
Aistech Space provides geospatial intelligence through affordable, recurrent information from space, that allows clients to manage their assets and resources on a global scale. The company addresses the gaps in the market by offering end-to-end data services and launching their own satellite network to enhance their space data. By combining their technology and space infrastructure, Aistech Space wants to democratize the access to space knowledge and add value to companies, organizations, and administrations.
What is the Space Tech behind it?
Aistech Space uses space and space technology to access a high volume of terrestrial data through its own two operational nanosatellites. By targeting more than 80 satellites in orbit by 2024, the company’s satellite constellation will provide access to multiple, unique, regular, and high-quality geospatial data at a reduced cost. To provide geospatial intelligence, the Aistech Space’s proprietary software platform integrates their own space data with 3rd party data based on data fusion, machine learning, and space-led AI algorithms. In addition, the company has developed the first commercially available high-resolution thermal telescope for nanosatellites, which provides unparalleled imagery on a global and recurrent basis.
What are the applications?
Aistech Space is focusing their solution around three core ideas:
- Remote asset management using data fusion and IoT
- Aviation tracking and surveillance
- High-resolution thermal imaging from space
How is Aistech supporting the UN SDGs?
Aistech Space data and analytical services are sector agnostic and can be applied to a wide array of use cases that support the UN SDGs. Those applications include monitoring the irrigation systems to reduce water waste in agriculture, or for the risk monitoring where Aistech Space’s thermal imagery can reduce wildfire coverage. In addition, the thermal-enabled surveillance can detect illegal fishing and increase air space safety through efficient air traffic management.
