Intuidex partners with Quub to launch next-gen Picoellite on SpaceX Rocket
Satellites with this kind of sensor functionality have traditionally taken months, if not years, to build and cost hundreds of millions of dollars. In contrast, these new generation picosats take a few days to build with commercially available parts with a parts cost of less than $ 50,000. However, it is their technology that makes them as functional as their bigger and much more expensive cousins. We have combined two cutting edge technologies to create something wonderful. Quub produces the best low SWaP2 picosats in its class: small in size, low weight, low power and low cost. We are able to deploy groups of picosats with different types of sensors including electro-optical, LiDAR and SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) that can stay in orbit for up to five years with little to no debris on re-entry. But what is really a game-changer is the technology embedded in the processing of this sensor data. At Intuidex, we offer proprietary HO-LRL ™ (Higher-Order Low-Resource Learning) technology. Our technology processes and merges data from multi-source sensors and quickly identifies objects and events with high accuracy, even in situations where limited data is available to make decisions. This is periphery-based processing on board the picosats, which means detection, merging, and alerting of objects and events are fully performed on board the picosat within milliseconds, resulting in Alerts actionable in downlink systems in near real time. This is the same machine learning technology found in Intuidex’s Watchman Analytics ™ suite, a successful analytics platform that has been proven successful in the defense and public safety verticals. .
The upcoming launch is the very first picosat of its kind to be launched in the United States. According to Dr. Bill Pottenger, CEO of Intuidex, “The first in a long series, this launch opens up a new market for spatial data as a service.”
Dated: January 13, 2022. Vehicle: SpaceX Falcon 9. Mission: A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will launch the Transporter 3 mission, a carpool flight to a sun-synchronous orbit with numerous small microsatellites and nanosatellites for commercial and government customers.
Launch site: Cape Canaveral Air Force Base
