P3.13 Aquawatch Pathfinders: Earth Observation Sensor Design Testbed (End to End Simulator)

Next Generation Earth Observation Data Services

Dr Arnold Dekker, SatDek Pty Ltd

This project is the first in a three-stage process to establish a simulation and optimisation capability to support the design of new satellite sensors and associated ground sensor networks. Stage 1 will involve initial prototyping and demonstration sensing applications for aquatic and marine targets. Stage 2 will extend the simulator to include terrestrial environments, and Stage 3 will include the satellite to on-ground/water/air sensor integrated networks of in-situ sensors (on ground or in water) with EO sensors (on aircraft or satellites).
