Want to know exactly how much air pollution there is in your city? Immediate insight on the effects of a natural disaster? Or would you like to measure the fertilization and irrigation levels for agricultural areas? Satellite Intelligence makes this all possible now. Various satellites orbiting the earth continuously monitor the condition of our environment.
Besides earth observation satellites making high-resolution optical, infra-red, or radar images, there are also satellites measuring the concentration of gasses in the atmosphere. This vast amount of data collected every day is valuable for a broad range of applications. For example, the air quality level of a city or region, tracking the development of a farmer’s crops, or instant damage assessment after a natural disaster. Airbus develops satellite-based information services in the fields of air quality, agriculture, and defence.
