Comsat Architects and Ubotica Partner to Advance AI-Powered Live Earth Intelligence from Space

Comsat Architects, one of the leading space communications companies in Northeast Ohio, announced a new partnership with Ubotica Technologies, a pioneer in autonomous AI-powered satellite technology. Together, Comsat Architects and Ubotica will integrate Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies into the combination of communication and Earth observation on small satellites in low Earth orbits to unlock the opportunity for Live Earth Intelligence.

Comsat Architects provides services in space communication analysis, advanced software, and aerospace technologies to civil and commercial sectors. They enable space communications in Earth and lunar environments for NASA and commercial ventures. They create and deliver full-stack applications for space data management, visualization, and analytics. Comsat Architects specializes in space connectivity for spacecraft in LEO orbit, and the infusion of AI/ML technologies into various aspects of data delivery.

One exciting area is combining Earth Observation with communications to unlock Live Earth Intelligence (continuously updated insights about Earth's changing conditions). Today, traditional Earth Observation faces a critical limitation: images are captured and sent to Earth, where processing can take days. Ubotica revolutionizes this process by integrating onboard image processing and AI inference intelligence directly on the satellite, unlocking real-time insights. Integrating this technology with communications means these insights reach users on Earth within seconds, enabling actionable decision-making. Comsat Architects will develop Ubotica's SPACE:AI onboard platform to develop autonomous communications networks and routing algorithms for constellations of small satellites.

"This strategic collaboration signifies a major milestone in harnessing the combined expertise of Comsat Architects and Ubotica to advance AI technologies in space systems," said Kul Bhasin, Ph.D., CEO of Comsat Architects. "We are thrilled to collaborate with Ubotica, exploring AI applications as we engage in the commercial space economy." Comsat Architects and Ubotica plan to explore cloud detection technology on satellite image data. Sample use cases of this technology include situational awareness, early detection, and Earth system monitoring.

"We are delighted to work with Comsat Architects," said Fintan Buckley, CEO of Ubotica. "AI has the power to transform life on Earth. Our work with Comsat Architects brings this transformation to space, revolutionizing how we observe and interact with our planet."

"This alliance represents a shared commitment to advancing the space industry by bringing edge-computing to the evolving landscape of space exploration and national security," said Aaron Rood, Sr. Director – Business Development of Ubotica Technologies, Inc. "The opportunity to partner with Comsat Architects will set the stage for AI technology in small satellite constellations."
