Earth observation satellites are specific satellite, which are specially designed for non-military purposes, for instance assessing the damage during natural disasters, surface geological mapping & mineral deposits, monitoring & predicting climate models, estimating crop yields, and availability of water sources. It generally utilizes remote-sensing technology for collecting the physical, chemical and biological data from the Earth system at an elevation of 800 km. This method generally allows the use of high resolution cameras as well as advanced sensors for measuring the geological parameters of the world from orbit. This contributes to the rational use of the Earth’s natural resources. Advanced image enhancement technology, advanced remote sensing technology and high-resolution cameras have improved the quality of satellite images of the Earth.
Earth observation satellite generally provides various value-added solutions in terms of technical processes, facilities and data management, which is anticipated to boost the market growth. The improvement of geographic information and imaging equipment has resulted in a huge improvisation in the performance and price of the tools, increasing the adoption rate and driving the market.
