What we do


AI & Machine learning

Blending satellite imagery with non-geospatial data to help you find the needle in the haystack. We develop cutting edge tools to automate a broad range of tasks ranging from surveying to monitoring. We process heterogeneous datasets composed from various sources and can also customize the tools to incorporate your own proprietary datasets. The services can be run on-site or in the Cloud, according to your cybersecurity requirements.

Small satellites

We are building versatile small satellites in the range of 25 to 50 kg. Our satellites are equipped with a variety of sensors collecting high resolution optical data multiple times per day on selected target areas. Tasking and archive imagery products will be available soon, with an optional extra layer of AI and machine learning to speed up your findings.
