Observe the Earth’s with infrared and visible spectrum cameras and test AI and smart image downlink system.


The technical student society PolyOrbite from the university of Polytechnique Montreal in Québec, Canada is designing a nanosatellite mission with a homemade 3U CubeSat that will observe the Earth’s surface with the help of infrared and visible spectrum cameras.

These payloads will give information on aerosols and various surface temperature hotspots on earth. The CubeSat will be able to monitor cities, agricultural lands, wildfires, glaciers and more. The main goal would be to monitor Canadian grounds and work with scientists and students in various fields to help push knowledge about our planet.

Besides having a scientific purpose, the CubeSat will also be used for technological demonstration. Two innovative technologies for space missions will be tested: Artificial intelligence with on earth machine learning and model sampling, and compressed sensing.
