With satellite data farmers can better manage water for irrigation—a quickly diminishing resource in the desert environment.
HyperScout can be used for monitoring indicators of vegetation condition over wide geographic areas, which is a prerequisite for environmental decision-making.
Change detection can be used for a variety of application which go water and soil pollution, to deforestation.
An example can be monotoring the of water basins to assess the level of desertification.
The data processing of HyperScout allows the analysis to be performed onboard. Only if an anomaly is detected the information is downlinked, allowing HyperScout to be used for early warning.
