Ukraine, Jan 5: EOS SAT-1, the initial satellite of EOS SAT, the first agri-focused satellite constellation launched by a remote sensing company, was successfully delivered into a low Earth orbit by SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket from the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida.
EOS SAT is a constellation consisting of seven small optical satellites created by EOS Data Analytics, a global provider of AI-powered satellite imagery analytics, to support the implementation of sustainable agriculture methods and environmental monitoring of forestlands by providing high-quality data for analysis.
All seven satellites are being built by Dragonfly Aerospace, a space imaging systems technology provider. A full-cycle operational process is established via vertical integration of the Polyakov’s Noosphere group of companies – EOS Data Analytics, Dragonfly Aerospace, SETS, and Flight Control Propulsion.
After reaching full operation by 2025, EOS SAT will cover up to 100 per cent of countries with the largest areas of farmlands and forestlands, amounting to 98.5 per of such lands across the globe.
EOS SAT will assist agribusinesses in monitoring crop growth and detecting heat, cold, water stress, weed spread, pest attacks, and other issues threatening crops.
The companies will also be able to optimize their input use based on productivity and vegetation maps provided by the constellation, test the effectiveness of new crop protection products or fertilizers, avoid unnecessary field inspections and thus reduce fuel use, manage irrigation, estimate yields, and more.
EOS SAT-1 monitors up to one million square kilometers daily using 11 agri-related bands.
Yet even with only one such satellite in the sky, EOSDA customers unlock the potential to implement precision agriculture practices and thus reduce CO2 emissions, cut energy consumption, decrease water usage, and more.
By 2025, the constellation will monitor up to 12 million square kilometers on a daily basis.
Its satellite cameras will generate panchromatic and multispectral imagery using 13 agri-related bands to provide specific information about the required aspects of the land in question.
EOS SAT-2 and the following satellites are expected to get into orbit within 2023-2024.
The full operational capability of the EOS SAT constellation is scheduled to be achieved in 2025.
