According to the press release by Neuraspace, Dragonfly Aerospace, a commercial leader in satellite imaging technology, has announced a strategic partnership with the company. The partnership ensures Dragonfly Aerospace utilises Neuraspace’s Space Traffic Management (STM) platform to enhance the capabilities of the Earth observation satellite (EOS SAT-1). This includes leveraging the platform for conjunction analysis, obtaining manoeuvre recommendations and advancing space sustainability efforts.

EOS SAT-1 is the world’s first agriculture-focused satellite and the first in a seven-satellite constellation, providing the agriculture and forestry industry with high-quality data and analysis. In addition, by integrating the Neuraspace STM platform, EOS SAT-1 can autonomously perform manoeuvres and avert potential collisions with other space objects. This protects the satellite and contributes to the overall reduction of space debris, a growing concern in space.

“The partnership between Dragonfly Aerospace and Neuraspace represents a crucial step forward in our commitment to sustainable space exploration. “We are excited to leverage the Neuraspace STM platform to ensure the safety and increased operational efficiency and longevity of EOS SAT-1”,  stated Bryan Dean, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Dragonfly Aerospace.

Furthermore, the CEO stated that Neuraspace’s STM platform was constructed to meet the ever-changing demands of satellite operators, promote responsible space practices, and safeguard the future of space-based missions. 

According to Chiara Manfletti, Director and Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Neuraspace, “The collaboration with Dragonfly Aerospace marks a significant milestone in deploying sustainable space practices. Our STM platform is a critical tool for ensuring the safe and sustainable use of space, and we are eager to witness its support for the EOS SAT-1 satellite. Furthermore, this partnership underscores the significance of cooperation among industry leaders in promoting space sustainability. The Neuraspace STM platform is poised to revolutionise satellites’ operation in the Earth’s increasingly crowded orbital environment. By providing AI-based space traffic management solutions, Neuraspace enables satellite operators to ensure the safety and longevity of their missions while contributing to a more sustainable space ecosystem.”
