Spiral Blue Launches 'Your Code In Space' Initiative Enabling AI Experiments in Space

Spiral Blue has announced the launch of the 'Your Code In Space' (YCIS) initiative. As the first of its kind in Australia, the program empowers anyone, including developers, researchers, and innovators from around the world, to run their custom code on Spiral Blue's cutting-edge SE-1 space-edge computer, facilitating real-time AI processing on satellite imagery to unlock unparalleled insights from space

YCIS has already achieved remarkable success, deploying numerous machine learning applications on the SE-1 space edge computer for organizations worldwide, delivering high-quality insights, and setting a new standard for data handling in space.

Spiral Blue's SE-1, stationed aboard a Satellogic satellite, marks a paradigm shift in space exploration and AI innovation. This groundbreaking technology allows users to harness the power of AI and apply it to satellite imagery, enabling applications that were previously unimaginable.

Cloud Detect: a Machine Learning algorithm run in space, to crop clouds out of satellite images.

The possibilities of YCIS are vast and promising. Applications that can be run on the SE-1 space edge computer include, but are not limited to:

  • Environmental Monitoring: Researchers can develop AI models that monitor deforestation, track wildlife migration patterns, detect changes in ocean temperature, and analyze air quality, contributing to our understanding of climate change and environmental conservation.
  • Natural Disaster Response: The SE-1's AI capabilities can be harnessed to rapidly assess the impact of natural disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes, and wildfires by analyzing satellite images to identify affected areas and guide relief efforts.
  • Agricultural Insights: Agricultural experts can leverage AI to monitor crop health, predict yields, and optimize irrigation by analyzing satellite imagery, contributing to global food security and sustainable farming practices.
  • Urban Planning: City planners and architects can use AI to analyze urban development patterns, traffic flow, and population dynamics to make informed decisions for sustainable city growth and infrastructure planning.
  • Wildlife Conservation: AI algorithms can detect and track endangered species, monitor their habitats, and help prevent poaching by analyzing satellite images of remote regions.
  • Space Exploration Support: 'Your Code in Space' also invites applications that aid space agencies in processing and analyzing astronomical data, contributing to our understanding of the cosmos.

Spiral Blue's commitment to innovation, space exploration, and AI advancement is exemplified by this trailblazing initiative. As we move forward into this exciting new chapter, the possibilities for discoveries and breakthroughs are limited only by the boundaries of human imagination.

Spiral Blue CTO, James Buttenshaw, proudly shared that YCIS is “enabling companies to gain space heritage in a fraction of the traditional time [by] proving to be extremely effective at removing the barriers to running custom analytics in space.”

Dr Henry Zhong, Head of AI at Spiral Blue added “Spiral Blue is proud to have brought Your Code In Space to fruition. Through YCIS we have achieved our dual goal of making our satellite programmable, allowing third parties to run their own code on-board, and drastically reducing data requirements by bringing down just useful insights.”
