Independent satellite intelligence capability, rapidly deployed

Our Technology and capability transfers have enabled client countries to develop a fully independent capability to take satellite imagery and apply Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning IP that they now own, to deliver highly accurate analysis for military and national security requirements.

This has been established quickly and then supported by a longer-term co-operation strategy

  • Clients have been able to further-develop the capability to build their own, new, object detection algorithms to meet their military customer requirements.
  • They have been able to become a domestic source of satellite intelligence for both military C4i systems and government strategic planning.
  • They have also benefitted from the rights to sell into export markets that require satellite intelligence.
