Earth Observation

Advances in small satellite and remote sensing technology are revolutionizing the Earth observation industry and providing critical new sources of consistent, continuous data for atmospheric, ocean and land use studies at a range of spatial and temporal extents. Investment in drone technology is also growing as new use cases in agriculture, forestry, disaster response, law enforcement and search and rescue continue to be explored.
