Making Sense of Space: Having Ears in the Sky
In this episode
In our series ‘Making Sense of Space’ we discuss various aspects of the Space ecosystem. This episode will focus on Earth Observation (EO) which involves gathering information about the planet’s physical, chemical and biological systems to deliver actionable insights. In particular, we go over how radio frequency data can be used to analyze marine, aviation, and weather patterns.
What we discuss 
  • What is Earth Observation and geospatial intelligence?
  • How have satellite form factors and technology evolved over the past few decades?
  • What type of satellites are in orbit and how are they different?
  • What are the real-life commercial uses cases for radio frequency EO satellites?
  • Details on Spire Global’s leading edge constellation and SaaS centric business model
