NorthStar Earth & Space partners with SpecTIR to deliver complete hyperspectral image services
31 January 2019
NorthStar Earth & Space Inc. is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with SpecTIR Hyperspectral & Remote Sensing Solutions of Reno, Nevada to deliver complete hyperspectral imaging services. SpecTIR's airborne hyperspectral image services will complement space-based hyperspectral image services delivered by NorthStar, the world's first global information platform to monitor Earth, its environment and near-space.
The NorthStar platform is based on a constellation of 40 satellites with a suite of sophisticated sensors that will support a complete and precise information service for Space Situational Awareness (SSA) and Earth Information and Intelligence (EI2). NorthStar will fuse data from multiple sources and be the first space-based commercial system to offer hyperspectral imaging, which deduces the chemical and mineral composition of matter on Earth at an unprecedented level of richness and detail.
