Ubotica Achieves Milestone In Live Earth Intelligence with CogniSAT-6

Ubotica, one of the leaders in SPACE:AI, and Open Cosmos, has announced a significant milestone in the CogniSAT-6 mission: the successful processing and instant AI-powered detection of the first raw image from the newly launched satellite.

SPACE:AI: Ushering in Earth Observation 2.0

Today’s Earth Observation satellites are fundamentally data collectors. They don’t understand what they’re observing; they simply gather data and downlink it all when passing over a ground station. But what if they could understand what they’re seeing? With SPACE:AI, they can.  

SPACE:AI unlocks the full potential of Earth Observation satellites by empowering them with real-time vision processing. Ubotica’s flight-proven, end-to-end AI platform transforms these satellites into intelligent, efficient and always connected observers.

SPACE:AI at Work: Ship Detection at Jeddah Port

Consider this first raw satellite image taken by CogniSAT-6 of the port and ocean near Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The challenge: quickly identify all ships in the area. For the first time, an Earth Observation satellite, powered by SPACE:AI, understands what it sees. Within 90 seconds, SPACE:AI detected every vessel within a 20 x 40-kilometre zone. This achievement demonstrates the model’s exceptional accuracy, even without prior training on CogniSAT-6 data.

Live Earth Intelligence: Instant Insights, Global Impact

CogniSAT-6 is designed to share these insights instantly. Through persistent inter-satellite communication, ship detection data can be relayed to users on Earth in real-time. This enables users to interact directly with the satellite, requesting more information or adjusting its focus.

SPACE:AI’s ship detection capabilities represent a significant advancement in the field. Unlike traditional methods requiring extensive training on thousands of processed images, SPACE:AI can perform real-time, on-board identification of ships from a single, raw, unprocessed image without prior training specific to the imager or sensor. This breakthrough technology dramatically simplifies and accelerates the process of extracting valuable information from Earth Observation data.

“This successful demonstration proves the advanced capabilities of CogniSAT-6 and our commitment to unlocking the true potential Earth Observation,” said Fintan Buckley, CEO of Ubotica. “Near real-time analysis of satellite data unlocks new possibilities for timely and effective decision-making across numerous sectors.”

Sean Mitchell, Chief Commercial Officer at Ubotica, added, “The performance of our ship detection model, combined with our rapid processing pipeline, showcases SPACE:AI’s transformative potential. We’re excited to see this technology in action and anticipate the significant impact CogniSAT-6 will have across industries.”
