In the latest interview in the Space Tech Speaker Spotlight series, Mindy Emsley spoke to Dan Lopez, VP Technology of UrtheCast. UrtheCast surveys the globe from cameras aboard the International Space Station. The biggest current customers for Earth observation services tend to be governments, which use satellite images for everything from monitoring the health of forests and gauging the extent of natural disasters, to tracking climate change and surveying other nations’ armies and navies. However, there are also emerging markets for satellite imagery in the private sector. Energy and agricultural businesses, as well as financial firms, are finding it useful to take a high-level view of the Earth’s surface, especially with the remarkably fine resolution that is now possible.
