The Power of AxelGlobe

AxelGlobe is the Earth observation infrastructure for a new era. It will have the ability to image the whole civilized world with a resolution of 2.5 m—enough to distinguish cars—every day. Its advantage is not just in the always-fresh information it will provide, but also in the collection of its past data. Comparing older images and studying their evolution can lead to invaluable insights and predictions for the future.

Axelspace has begun the development of AxelGlobe, an Earth observation service based on a constellation with dozens of microsatellites. With it we’ll be able to obtain imagery of more than half of the planet’s dry land once every single day. That accounts for virtually all of the areas where humans are economically active, and the data will be available and up to date daily. The first launch was made in 2018. We expect to complete the constellation by 2022.

Besides its obvious uses in crop acreage and growth monitoring, analysis of satellite imagery can lead to accurate forecasts of the best harvest times and optimal management of fertilizer and water distribution.

Satellite images are being used for various applications in the forestry sector, like the detection of illegal logging and the identification of vegetation types.

Management of long-distance pipelines, oceanic platforms, megasolar plants and all kinds of other large-scale infrastructures can benefit from up-to-date satellite data.
