Space Tech

Space Tech is driving one of the biggest transformations of our generation and will improve life on Earth using tools that combine high-resolution satellite imagery data with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). Whether it’s precious natural habitat or the built environment, patterns of human behaviour or flaws in critical infrastructure, all can be surveyed and better understood from space. This is the knowledge hub to explore the fast-growing applications of Space Tech.
