Democratising Earth Observation by Making Smarter Satellites
Time & Location
About the Event
Humanity is facing immense challenges this century, including climate change, deforestation, and desertification. People are going out into the field to make measurements, flying drones, and installing internet of things devices in an effort to get an idea of what's really happening.
Earth observation satellites have the potential to enable much easier monitoring and management of our planet, but this technology has seen limited adoption to date. This talk will discuss some of the limitations in Earth observation satellites and how these limitations are being overcome.Speaker Biography
