OIRTHIRSAT

The nanosatellite competing for
UK Space Agency funding
to monitor coastal change

 

PROPOSAL

The OirthirSAT mission ('or-hear' being Scottish Gaelic for 'coast') aims to provide rapid and simplistic measures of coastal change, arming decision-makers with the best tools to identify and support vulnerable coastal communities.

ONBOARD PROCESSING OF COASTAL IMAGES

OirthirSAT will automatically process EO images captured and extract shoreline boundaries onboard, to rapidly provide coastal researchers access to processed, standardised datasets for coastal change/flood monitoring
and modelling.

VEGETATION BOUNDARY EXTRACTION

Different types of vegetation will help the onboard processing capability to extract edge data from the images captured by the Multispectral Imager.

DRAGSAIL DEMONSTRATOR

OirthirSAT features a novel Dragsail design to deorbit the CubeSat after the mission duration, making it a sustainable mission by minimising Space Debris.
