Humans have long been fascinated by outer space: the final frontier, full of mystery and promise. Now, technology is making it possible to harness that promise and, in turn, to transform life on Earth.
Each day, satellites send back a staggering amount of satellite data, but what can we do with those terabytes of images and information? How do we make sense—and use—of it? e-GEOS a Telespazio/Italian Space Agency (ASI) company and a pioneer in the “new space economy” may have an answer to this question.
While most people might not have heard the term “geoinformation”, it’s becoming part of our everyday lives. Geoinformation products are created from satellite data such as COSMO-SkyMed, a satellite constellation owned by the Italian Space Agency and the Italian Ministry of Defense, for which e-GEOS holds the exclusive global commercialization rights. These products have diverse applications, from maritime surveillance to disaster mapping to infrastructure planning. And when earth observation data is fused with other data sources—such as socio-demographics and IoT—it offers tremendous value for end users.
The private sector demand for complex satellite data is growing at an exponential rate, driven by industries including agriculture, utilities, insurance and finance. This data can also play a crucial role in helping companies meet their sustainability goals, particularly around land management and natural resources.
e-GEOS needed a cutting-edge solution that would process and analyze satellite data, transforming e-GEOS into a multi-dimensional data provider and expanding its customer base.
e-GEOS teamed up with Accenture to design and deploy its own scalable satellite data and information cloud platform to serve experts and novices alike.
The solution—CLEOS (Cloud Earth Observation Services)—is a revolutionary, AI-powered product that makes geoinformation data accessible through a simple user interface. CLEOS puts the customer at the core: streamlining the management and processing of satellite data and distilling it into relevant, actionable reports.
The solution delivers a cohesive user experience not only for satellite experts, but also for market specialists across industries. Accenture and e-GEOS teams simultaneously implemented a number of technology solutions, including leveraging the power of Max-ICS—an analytics platform developed by EarthLab Luxembourg, an e-GEOS company, which serves as a smart enabler for centralizing data.
The team implemented a number of technology solutions and services simultaneously, all working to deliver a seamless user experience. And it can be used not just by satellite experts, but by market specialists across industries.
Users can also set up automatic image extraction and real-time analysis, which has significant implications for emergency and natural disaster management. Earth observation also plays a key role in Industry of the Future innovations, enabling new intelligent operations across multiple sectors.
As sustainability emerges as a top priority for companies, CLEOS can help clients reach their sustainability targets and manage the impacts of climate change.
