Based on AIX eco-system, AIX4COPERNICUS exploits state-of-the-art technologies in the space environment targeting reactivity, responsiveness, and low latency.
It means AIX4COPERNICUS will act both as a gap filler and an innovation accelerator.
AIX4COPERNICUS could contribute to several existing Copernicus services, providing a low latency information extraction workflow, tuning the overall acquisition planning (considering all the assets as cooperative) and enabling a new set of monitoring services.
A fundamental enabler for exploiting the EO capabilities provided by Copernicus is the data processing at the edge, un-locking the fastest response loop, an autonomous tasking/planning capability, and actually moving the focus from “background” data to foreground "insights", from Earth Observation to Eart Intelligence.
The actionable information is promptly used, while only a small percentage of data is moved to ground while all the remaining could be discarded.
AIX4COPERNICUS services exploits a hybrid edge eco-system based on an orbiting platform that provides EO payloads, ready-to-deploy CubeSats and a software framework infrastructure.
