Exo-Space signs letter of intent with Blue Planet
December 9, 2020
We are excited to announce that we signed an LOI with Blue Planet to provide a custom on-board processing device which can detect the presence of clouds in photos and adjust the onboard compression ratio in real-time to optimize downlink bandwidth. This will greatly reduce the per pixel cost of Blue Planet images taken from space.
Blue Planet described our device as an “enabling technology” for their mission. The company’s core technology is developing the cameras and ground station network for a constellation of Earth Observation satellites that can “Xerox” the Earth everyday and also provides a web portal where customers can log in at any time to view their data and images.
