We will monitor the temperature of our planet
Our advanced optical system can resolve details with a spatial resolution better than 50 m.
Our cooperative CubeSat constellation will allow sub-daily global revisit times.
Our sophisticated sensor system will deliver land surface temperature with higher radiometric accuracy comparable to Sentinel-3 or Landsat-8.
Today, more than 80% of humankind's global calorie supply is based on plants. To keep humankind fed, the United Nations predict that within only thirty years, we will need to increase global food production by more than 50%. Without new land. Despite water shortage. And under changing climatic conditions.
At ConstellR, we agree with the United Nations: To feed the world, to protect our environment, and to conserve our resources, agriculture needs to become more efficient. And to do so, we will need systems which can monitor our crop's health: Daily, globally, and on the level of a single field. With ConstellR, we will offer exactly such a system. From space.
We will offer analytics-ready level-2 georeferenced land surface temperature data as well as higher level derived information products directly searchable and accessible via our intuitive data explorer and API.
Today, visual and RADAR imagery is the dominant information source in Earth observation (EO). Both EO-technologies underwent a massive market growth in the past years, based on technological developments: we can routinely get a high-resolution image of our whole planet within 24 h in both spectral regimes.
Lately, there is an emerging interest in the thermal infrared to obtain our planet’s surface temperature. But here, we always have to compromise between spatial resolution and revisit time. This is putting a massive constraint on the market.
Land surface temperature (LST) data is the primary dataset for monitoring applications across different markets as well as the basis for many remote sensing products, including evapotranspiration & water stress and crop yield prediction models.
More than 70 % of global freshwater resources are attributed to agriculture and irrigation is the main cost driver in agriculture.
ConstellR's data can be used for efficient irrigation management applying just as much water as is optimal for plant growth.
The results can be an increase in the yield as well as an efficient use of freshwater as our most valuable resource.
Cash flow fluctuations resulting from changing commodity prices are a challenge for the global economy.
With ConstellR's thermal infrared data and derived data products, crop yield predictions can be substantially improved.
Reliable forecasts help reduce fluctuations in raw material prices and protect future cash flows for businesses.
Extreme weather conditions can severely impact our ability to produce sufficient food for a growing world population.
ConstellR’s data can simultaneously access top-level and root-level soil moisture content, thereby supporting in timely predicting and acting on droughts.
The growing world population is more vulnerable to natural disasters due to increasing densification.
ConstellR’s data products help with early-stage hazard detection of wildfires, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, droughts, and other small and large scale temperature anomalies and can actively support local authorities in preparing and conduction appropriate countermeasures.
Urban Heat Islands are a serious threat to the health of an increasingly urban society.
ConstellR’s thermal data products can help identify respective areas as well as quantify the effectiveness of countermeasures in smart cities.
In an increasingly interconnected world, the condition and maintaining of infrastructures is of immense importance. ConstellR’s infrared technology can monitor sensitive infrastructure day and night.
Our team comprises highly skilled and enthusiastic individuals who do cover the technical side of things, including earth observation, space engineering and image processing, as well as business and sales experiences.
We have picked up in-sector knowledge during our times at respective companies, including reinsurance giant MunichRe, satellite expert Airbus, two of Europe’s largest research organizations, Fraunhofer and the German Aerospace Center, and one of Germany’s top entrepreneurial hubs, the Technical University of Munich.
We combine scientific excellence, space heritage, and entrepreneurship.
