EMPOWERING HUMANITY TO PRESERVE OUR PLANET
NorthStar is a Global Information System that will provide the world with new tools to protect our natural resources, transforming traditional Earth Observation into Earth Information & Intelligence – EI².
Based on a satellite constellation with a unique and powerful sensor array, NorthStar will be the first system to image, digitize and analyse the chemical characteristics of the complete surface of the Earth multiple times per day. NorthStar will provide Earth Observation and Space Object Tracking information products at a level of precision, richness and timeliness never before available. NorthStar’s ambition is to capture these markets and become the world’s leading information company.
NorthStar will combine Hyperspectral and Infrared sensors to observe Earth, using reflected sunlight to image and obtain a wealth of information about any object on the planet. The NorthStar Satellite Constellation will image Earth and its near space orbit continuously, with refresh rates that enable coverage unprecedented in human history.
SPACE OBJECT TRACKING
Around and above our planet, NorthStar’s sensors will monitor over 300,000 near-space objects, protecting high-value space assets from catastrophic collisions.
EARTH INFORMATION & INTELLIGENCE – EI²
Via sophisticated data analysis and predictive analytics, NorthStar’s information products will be of the highest value to global sectors such as Agriculture, Forestry, Defense, Fisheries, Environment, Urban Planning, Insurance, Energy and Natural Resources. Knowledge provided by NorthStar will enable a new era of sophisticated Earth Information and Intelligence (EI²), with the power to change how we see and interact with our world.
NorthStar will provide governments and regulatory agencies with powerful new tools to effectively monitor and forecast the effects of their policies.
