SPACEDGE is a space ecosystem implementing the concept of Satellite asa-Service. It is composed by satellites and a ground market place and all the ground and in-orbit resources are made available to the users through blockchain based mechanisms. In this way satellite data are immediately converted into useful information by reducing both costs and barriers to access to space in line with the concepts of the “NewSpace Economy”. Users can choose to use a customized set of Spacedge™ components by configuring the best possible value chain in terms of cost/benefits, i.e. defining the best acquisition and processing workflow for each specific application scenario. By SPACEDGE™ it is possible to test and apply artificial intelligence algorithms in real operational scenarios of Earth Observation, being able to make them available to the community in the SPACEDGE™ market place.
