EDINBURGH (ConstellR PR) — German thermal remote sensing specialist, Constellr, has acquired Belgian hyperspectral firm ScanWorld, in a first for Europe’s emerging agricultural Earth Observation (EO) sector. The transaction will enable an unprecedented planetary health monitoring service and represents a pioneering step for fusing technological capabilities in the sector.
MUNICH and FREIBURG, Germany (ConstellR/cloudeo PR) — The agreement between the two geospatial data companies brings both commercial and technical advantages. ConstellR’s high-resolution thermal infrared data will be made available to cloudeo’s broad network of geospatial partners through the cloudeo marketplace, allowing customers in agriculture, oil & gas and maritime markets to exploit new, value-adding data layers which offer higher accuracy and better spatial resolution.
The partnership also allows cloudeo to enhance its Geo-Insurance product, an automated service delivering insights on crop health to insurance companies. ConstellR’s global temperature monitoring products and strong data science capabilities will help enhance the quality and accuracy of cloudeo’s crop damage monitoring and day-to-day farm management services, covering drought monitoring, heatwave- or frost-damage identification and cost-effective irrigation insights. The performance of cloudeo’s crop type classification deep learning pipeline is also expected to be enhanced.
Tiny thermal satellites to help shift to prevention in disaster management
DARMSTADT, Germany (Maydai.ai PR) — Mayday.ai and ConstellR – two German companies pioneering technological developments in the areas of risk and disaster management and agricultural monitoring, are joining forces. The partnership will allow Mayday users to benefit from a higher spatial and temporal resolution. This higher performance product will be critical for disrupting the highly reactive nature of disaster management and will allow for deeper insights in reducing climate change disaster risks.
In light of the latest COP26 EU €100m pledge and other member state contributions to the Adaptation Fund – the highest single mobilization to the Fund yet – this partnership builds on the acknowledgment that risk-informed strategies and action needs to be anchored on the best available climate and disaster risk analytics.
Airbus’ novel payload hosting service enables the in-space technology demonstration of a multispectral camera for ConstellR, a Fraunhofer EMI spin-off
Bremen, 14 December 2020 – Airbus and Fraunhofer EMI have signed a contract for an in-orbit demonstration mission on the Bartolomeo platform of the International Space Station (ISS). With this mission, Fraunhofer EMI enables its spin-off ConstellR to demonstrate the core measurement technology required for highly accurate land surface temperature (LST) monitoring on a global scale.
