Satellites, given their constant surveillance and coverage capabilities, are a natural fit for Earth Observation. A single satellite, with the right resolution and altitude, could take a snapshot of the country, and the right expertise and tools would allow you to assess the extent or the snowfall, especially when compared with historical imagery.
In the business of Earth Observation, positioning is just as key. While the industry is well-established, with imagery setting the pace and breaking away as the front-runner, a non-imagery market is emerging.
NSR’s has just published their Satellite-Based Earth Observation, 12th Edition (EO12) finds a limited impact from COVID-19 on the Earth Observation (EO) market, with the sale of EO data and derived products to reach $8.1 billion annually by 2029.
