Earth Observation

Earth observation refers to the practice of utilising diverse technologies to gather data and insights about the Earth’s surface, atmosphere, and environment.

What is Earth Observation?


Earth observation is the use of various technologies in satellites, aircraft, drones, and other instruments to collect information about the Earth’s surface, atmosphere, and environment. The data collected is analyzed for the study of Earth systems such as weather patterns, climate change, ecosystems, and natural disasters.

Onboard processing for SAR satellites


Onboard processing for SAR satellites is a growing area of research due to the increasing demand for Earth applications for Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data.
The amount of data produced by a SAR sensor prevents real-time data transfer to the ground due to the limitations of downlink speeds, thus requiring large on-board data storage.

Klepsydra AI Technology evaluation for Space Use


New generations of spacecrafts are required to perform tasks with an increased level of autonomy. Space exploration, Earth Observation, space robotics, etc. are all growing fields in Space that require more sensors and more computational power to perform these missions.



KAMnet online demo: AI-based onboard geolocalization based on visual sensors


Geolocation onboard Earth Observation satellite refers to the process of determining the precise location of a target on the Earth’s surface using data acquired by sensors onboard the satellite. This is typically done by comparing the position of the target in the image to the known location of reference points, such as landmarks, coastlines, or other features with known coordinates.

Klepsydra AI – ESA OBMark-ML online demo II: The Cloud Detection DNN


Cloud detection is a crucial process in Earth Observation used to identify and mask clouds in satellite imagery. This is necessary because clouds can obstruct the view of the Earth’s surface, making it difficult to accurately interpret and analyse the data.

Klepsydra AI-ESA OBMark-ML online demo I: The Coronal Mass Ejection


Klepsydra has released a new demo on AI onboard for Space applications: Klepsydra AI – ESA OBMark-ML online demo I: The CME DNN.

A CME is a significant release of plasma and accompanying magnetic field from the Sun’s corona into the heliosphere.


High throughput Earth Observation Solution based on CAN-Open Protocol


In this demo, it is shown the Earth Observation solution that Klepsydra offers for distributed computing in satellites. We show that our solution is not only very efficient in performance and stability, but is also a framework that is extremely easy to program with.

  • Distributed computing in satellites.
  • Extremely easy to program with.

Real time Earth Observation Webinar


We hosted a webinar in the 31st of May of 2022 on the topic of Real-time Earth Observation with world renowned experts in the field and covered both business and technology perspectives.

On the Edge of Earth Observation Webinar


Klepsydra held a round table about Earth Observation in the Phiweek of 2020. 

Improvement in sensor technology matched with the insatiable demand for more data is creating challenges for space-borne platforms to convey significant quantities of data space to earth.
