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, and standardised datasets for coastal change/flood monitoring
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.
OirthirSAT features a novel Dragsail design to deorbit the CubeSat after the mission duration, making it a sustainable mission by minimising Space Debris.
