DEIMOS IMAGING S.L.U. (ES)
One of the advantages of constellations of EO satellites is the capability to observe areas or features of interest more often than a conventional satellite would allow.
However this usually requires rapid tasking of follow-on satellites based on information collected from a lead satellite.
This “Tipping and cueing” is critical to ensuring an effective monitoring response but there are a range of issues to be addressed if it is to be successfully implemented. Considerations as to what information is available compared to what is ideally required, what constitutes an optimized follow-up observation in different circumstances and how fast cueing is required are all dependent on the feature or target being observed.
This contract is testing a range of scenarios and assessing the effectiveness and utility of different tipping and cueing approaches.
