Monitoring Ecosystems Anywhere on Earth
As part of the Climate and Livability Initiative, KAUST CubeSat will keep watch on the world’s ecosystems with enhanced metrics that map and monitor change anywhere in the world. This 6U CubeSat nanosatellite will produce new insights across land and marine ecosystems, allowing scientists to monitor and quickly respond to local changes at global scale. KAUST CubeSat is a partnership with Spire, a provider of space-based data and analytics.
Can focus on any location in the world across 30-plus spectral bands across the visible to near-infrared (VNIR) spectrum.
Monitors vegetation health/condition, soil moisture, and other critical variables for ecological and agricultural insights
