Aerial Data Collection By Mothership Aeronautics Solves Cadence, Resolution, and Cloud Cover Issues That Hamper Satellite-Derived Imagery Analysis
October 27 , 2020 – 1:05pm Eastern Time
TAMPA, Florida – Simularity, a Geospatial AI company, and Mothership Aeronautics, a provider of aerial data collection products and services, have established a partnership that combines Simularity’s automated persistent change detection and classification with Mothership’s aerial geo-coded imagery collection services.
Simularity and Mothership are working together on a monitoring service for local governments. Mothership specializes in designing unmanned aircraft data collection missions that can capture ultra high resolution imagery of cities and provinces. Simularity’s automated imagery analysis software can detect persistent changes, such as illegal dumping, using the imagery collected by Mothership. The high resolution imagery leads to exceptional accuracy in detecting problems local governments face, helping them locate issues while the problems are still of manageable size.
“Our technology combined with data collection advantages of Mothership Aeronautics provides our customers with a solution that gives the level of detail and accuracy that local governments need to monitor their areas” said Liz Derr, CEO of Simularity. “Many of the issues of concern to local governments, such as blight, encroachment, illegal construction, and polluting, are difficult to spot with the image resolution available from satellites.”
“The level of detail we can provide with our image collection is stunning, but it’s a lot of information for geospatial analysts to process.” Said Jonathan Nutzati, CEO of Mothership Aeronautics. “Using Simularity’s automated software to process those images gives local administrators the knowledge they need to make timely and informed decisions,” he added.
Simularity Inc. is a Tampa, Florida-based Geospatial AI company, that specializes in developing robust, accurate, automated AI analysis for satellite imagery to predict, detect and classify significant changes happening on the ground and at sea.
Mothership Aeronautics is a California-based company that specializes in designing mission-specific unmanned aircraft and data collection strategies. Their solutions are characterized by long flying times, often by the use of alternative energy sources, such as solar power.
