Combines different technologies with three main objectives:

  1. Improving and facilitating the payload data management from the satellite operations perspective.
  2. Enhancing the payload data quality for the generation of Analysis Ready Data products.
  3. Leveraging the data received by end users with the provision of Value Added Products and Services.

Operation “Catalyst"

The iSIM technology includes data handling features allowing to download preliminary images thumbnail to assess the full downloads (enabling optimization of download capacity and data prioritization).

Smart Image Processing

The iSIM technology and its push-frame acquisition allow different Operation Modes can be modulated according to the customer’s needs depending on application and target

Compression Software

New compression algorithm metrologically correct:  a compromise between traditional lossy and lossless algorithms, a method permitting reaching compression factors of 4 to 6.

Analysis Ready Data & Value-Added Products

Radiometric correction & Direct Georeferencing
Geometric refinement
& Orthorectification

The resulting Analysis Ready Data serves as multi-applications data source for the generation of Value-Added Products (e.g., detection, identification, alerts, change detection, etc.). Such pipelines can complete and/or complement the user data analysis and exploitation pipelines, thus enriching the User Segment.

Data Ground Segment Infrastructure

A cloud-based software infrastructure for end-to-end mission data management (archiving, processing, and cataloguing), both in a Platform as a Service (PaaS) or directly installed in Customer’s infrastructure, to execute and implement data processing and data archive.

Agile Earth Observation Satellite

The iSIM imagers enable capturing high-quality images continuously while satellite observes along and across its orbit, via different Agile Observation Modes, like following irregular trajectories (e.g., coastlines, borders), using back-scanning to enhance signal or for videos (i.e., allowing detection of target velocity and direction), or selecting an enhancing swath mode (e.g., wide monitoring). These modes help optimize the mission operations and obtaining coverage tailored to each specific satellite pass target.
