The role of the Earth Observation industry in emergency situations and crisis response has significantly grown in recent years. Climate change brought forest fires, floods and other emergency states that have put Earth Observation and its data to the forefront. Data provided by the Earth Observation industry provides insights that allow emergency services to put their action plan in place appropriately and act timely.

Nano satellites: Democratizing access to Earth observation information

Cubesat Deployment

In January 2014, Planet Labs, a small San Francisco based Startup Company, delivered a payload of 28 Earth Imaging Satellites or to the International Space Station (ISS) and in February the fleet of shoebox-sized satellites was deployed by ejecting them from an airlock, this fleet of miniature satellites or cubsats measuring 10 cm x 10cm x 30cm aims to revolutionize the space industry by providing cheap miniature satellites with the goal of gaining unparallel insight into real time activity on the Earth’s Surface.
