ESEO teams

The ESEO satellite will be set into space on board the Spaceflight’s SSO-A: SmallSat Express dedicated rideshare mission on a SpaceX Falcon 9 launcher from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, (US), on 2 December 2018 (targeted date). ESEO will be a passenger together with about 70 other micro, nano, and pico satellites from several countries from all over the world.

ESEO is an ESA micro-satellite project with an educational objective: for the participating university students to acquire hands-on experience of a real space project, in order to prepare a well-qualified technical workforce for the European space sector. This was achieved by offering the student the opportunity to develop the payload (scientific instruments or technology demonstration experiments), key satellite subsystems and the ground segment (ground stations and Mission Control) to the mission, under the coordination of ESA and SITAEL, the Industrial Prime Contractor, responsible for the satellite platform, system integration and testing, and the technical coordination of the student teams.

Run by the ESA Education Office, ESEO is part of ESA Academy’s Hands-on Space Programme.

Ten Universities from eight ESA Member States (Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, UK) have participated in ESEO, with more than 600 university students involved in the project since its inception.

ɸ-week | Day 4

The main focus of day four at ESA’s ɸ-week was on the opportunities Earth observation can bring to business and the economy. Participants discussed how companies can use freely-available satellite data to create commercial products. To fully exploit the range of data available, new tools such as ‘data cubes’ are being developed. Carsten Brockmann from Brockmann Consult explains how they are harmonising different data, which makes it easier for scientists and application developers to work with data.

Being held on 12–16 November at our Earth observation centre in Frascati, Italy, ɸ-week brings together emerging space investors, tech leaders, start-ups and entrepreneurs with the space scientists and Earth observation researchers who are developing the potential space business ideas of tomorrow.

Artificial intelligence for Earth observation

During ESA’s ɸ-week on 12–16 November in Italy, Patrick Helber from the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence explains how artificial intelligence is being trained with Earth observation data and images such as that from the Copernicus Sentinel-2 mission so features can be detected automatically. This can then be used to classify land cover types automatically, for example.
