EOS Data Analytics Launches EOS SAT-1, The First Satellite of Its Agrifocus Constellation

EOS Data Analytics has launched EOS SAT-1, the first satellite of its EOS SAT constellation, which consists of seven small optical satellites created to support the implementation of sustainable agriculture methods and environmental monitoring of forestlands by providing high-quality data for analysis. All seven satellites are being built by Dragonfly Aerospace, a space imaging systems technology provider. After reaching full operation by 2025, EOS SAT will cover up to 100% of countries with the largest areas of farmlands and forestlands, amounting to 98.5% of such lands across the globe. EOS SAT-2 and the following satellites are expected to be launched in 2023-2024, with the full operational capability of the EOS SAT constellation scheduled to be achieved in 2025.

EOS Data Analytics has launched EOS SAT-1, the first satellite of its EOS SAT constellation, which consists of seven small optical satellites created to support the implementation of sustainable agriculture methods and environmental monitoring of forestlands by providing high-quality data for analysis. The satellite was successfully delivered into a low Earth orbit by SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket from the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida.

All seven satellites are being built by Dragonfly Aerospace, a space imaging systems technology provider. A full-cycle operational process has been established through the vertical integration of the Noosphere group of companies – EOS Data Analytics, Dragonfly Aerospace, SETS, and Flight Control Propulsion. After reaching full operation by 2025, EOS SAT will cover up to 100% of countries with the largest areas of farmlands and forestlands, amounting to 98.5% of such lands across the globe.

EOS SAT will assist agribusinesses in monitoring crop growth and detecting heat, cold, water stress, weed spread, pest attacks, and other issues that may threaten crops. The companies will also be able to optimize their input use based on productivity and vegetation maps provided by the constellation, test the effectiveness of new crop protection products or fertilizers, avoid unnecessary field inspections and thus reduce fuel use, manage irrigation, estimate yields, and more. EOS SAT-1 monitors up to one million square kilometers daily using 11 agri-related bands.
