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, and 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.
