Ukrainian-US EOS Data Analytics satellite imagery provider and South-African Dragonfly Aerospace company will launch two multispectral imagers into low Earth orbit in 2022.

As noted, the payloads will be “particularly useful for the commercial agricultural industry.”

“Multispectral images are critical for tracking environmental changes. They allow the monitoring of selected areas and the accurate detection of zones experiencing destructive human impact,” SpaceWatch.Global portal informs.

The Ukrainian-US company underscores that this technology facilitates timely response to the smallest changes in land-use or land-cover and helps to prevent undesired outcomes both in a particular region and worldwide.

“The integration of this multispectral image data into EOS Crop Monitoring work will provide even more opportunities for precision farming. With the visualized data from the company’s satellite, farmers will be able to accurately monitor and analyze the critical indicators of soil and yield conditions,” the EOS Data Analytics notes.

EOS Data Analytics is headquartered in the United States, California, and has research and development centers in Ukrainian cities: Kyiv, Dnipro, Kharkiv, Zaporizhzhia. The company specializes in collecting, processing, and analyzing large amounts of data from satellites to help farmers monitor their crops.
