Earth Observation

Plan-S's Earth

The transformative power of Earth Observation (EO) has become evident in recent years. By capturing and analyzing data about our planet's surface and atmosphere, EO provides a holistic view of Earth’s systems, making it invaluable across a spectrum of applications. The insights derived from EO support governments, businesses, and organizations in making well-informed decisions, ranging from urban development and conservation efforts to disaster management and agricultural productivity. Furthermore, with the onset of the New Space movement, the capabilities of EO have expanded dramatically, leveraging advanced satellite technologies to democratize access to critical planetary data.

In the evolving realm of Earth Observation, Plan-S has emerged as a distinctive force. Their approach to EO isn't just about harnessing existing technologies; it’s about pioneering new ones. The development of their satellites starts with Connecta T2.1 and continues notably with the Observa series, showcasing their commitment to innovation.

Plan-S's expertise in satellite delivery is at the core of their EO strategy. Plan-S entered the EO arena with the launch of Connecta T2.1. Placed in strategic orbit, this satellite is designed to collect high-resolution and sensitive data from the surface of our planet.

The rapid development and deployment of satellites such as Connecta T1.1 and Connecta T1.2, while primarily designed for IoT connectivity, is a testament to Plan-S's agility and ability to meet a variety of EO demands. Once this satellite is in place, the data collection phase begins. This extensive process involves capturing multi-spectral imagery, thermal maps, topographic details and more.

Plan-S's efficiency does not end in the vastness of space. Robust ground operations ensure seamless transmission of collected data back to Earth. Plan-S's strategically positioned ground stations aim to guarantee minimal transmission delays and the highest level of data integrity.

Raw data is merely the starting point. Plan-S commitment to revolutionizing the EO industry is also evident in the data analysis phase. Utilizing sophisticated algorithms, machine learning protocols, and specialized software interfaces, unprocessed satellite data is transformed into practical insights.

The conclusion of this complex process is the decision-making phase. Through the EO system's insights and intelligence, Plan-S empowers governments, industries and private organizations to make informed and strategic decisions.

The Problems Solved by Plan-S Earth Observation System:

Requirement for Covering Vast Geographic Area – Global Coverage​:

Through their advanced satellite fleet, including Connecta T2.1 and newcomers, Plan-S offers a network that covers vast geographical expanses, ensuring global coverage. The satellites' strategic orbital placements will allow them to continuously monitor different parts of the world, providing a holistic view of global phenomena, changes, and events.

Fragmented Sector – Lack of One-Shop Address for the Customers​:

Plan-S operates as an end-to-end Earth Observation service provider. They provide a comprehensive range of services, ranging from satellite design and deployment to data collection, analysis and delivery. This eliminates the need for customers to approach multiple vendors for different requirements, making Plan-S a one-stop-shop for all Earth Observation needs.

Capacity Being Controlled by Public Sector – Not Attainable by Vast Customer Base​:

As a private entity with a commercial focus, Plan-S democratizes access to space-based services. We can cater to a diverse clientele, ranging from private corporations to smaller entities, ensuring a broad customer base can access and benefit from their services.

Capacity Being Mostly Designed for Academic&Research Purposes​:

While academic and research pursuits are vital, Plan-S understands the commercial and practical applications of Earth Observation data. Their solutions are designed with a broader audience in mind, ensuring that industries, governments, and other entities can derive actionable insights.

Expensive Service Prices – Use of GEO & Big Satellites​:

Plan-S's innovation involves exploiting satellite technologies that are efficient and budget-friendly. Instead of relying solely on Geostationary Orbits (GEO) and large satellites, they will employ Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites, and smaller satellite constellations. This approach not only reduces launch and maintenance costs but also translates to more affordable service prices for their clientele.

Requirement to Attain Value Added Data Services According to Customer Specific Needs​:

Plan-S's "Space as a Solution" approach is customized to meet the unique demands of individual consumers. The yacknowledge that generic data may not satisfy the distinct requirements of all their clients. By means of customized software interfaces and data processing algorithms, they refine raw data into specialized, value-added information thatmeets specific client objectives and requirements.
