European Space Imaging Celebrates 15 Years of Success

We are proud to announce our 15th year as the leading premium supplier to the remote sensing industry, offering the highest spatial resolution imagery currently commercially available.

Established and operated in Munich, Germany, European Space Imaging began in 2002. The concept of a European based satellite imaging company was born when Managing Director Adrian Zevenbergen sat down with GAF Founder Dr. Rupert Hayden, Space Imaging Middle East Managing Director Mohammed El Kadi and DLR Director Ground Station Dr. Kalus Reinigert over dinner at Franziskaner Brau in Munich. “It has been a win-win situation that has continued until today” Said Dr. Hayden.

With a focus on delivering quality imagery combined with expert and personalised customer support, the company has developed a reputation and unbeatable track record for supplying tailored very high resolution imagery solutions to meet the diverse projects and requirements of the industry.

From humble beginnings as a one man operation, the company has since grown to 37 employees and has achieved strength to strength as the years have passed.

Earlier this year the company made a significant multi-million dollar investment in the Constellation Direct Access Facility located at the German Aerospace Centre DLR. This investment allows the company to operate a multi-mission capable ground station and directly task the DigitalGlobe WorldView satellite fleet to offer comprehensive solutions to their customers across Europe, North Africa and the CIS countries. Currently European Space Imaging is the only European satellite data provider capable of this.

“It is an honour to be celebrating this milestone for the company. Through hard work and the dedication of all our staff members we have grown to be recognised as the leading satellite imagery provider in Europe. Every single employee is dedicated to serving the needs of our customers and providing innovative solutions to enable not only the company to succeed, but also our customers. We have come a long way over the last 15 years and I am excited to see what the future holds for the company” Said Adrian Zevenbergen, Managing Director at European Space Imaging.

Architecture of ResNet34-UNet model

UNet architecture for semantic segmentation with ResNet34 as encoder or feature extraction part. ResNet34 is used as an encoder or feature extractor in the contracting path and the corresponding symmetric expanding path predicts the dense segmentation output.

Architecture of VGG16-UNet model

UNet architecture for semantic segmentation with VGG16 as the encoder or feature extractor. VGG16 is used as an encoder or feature extractor in the contracting path and the corresponding symmetric expanding path predicts the dense segmentation output.

Architecture of ResNet34-FCN model

In this model, ResNet34 is used for feature extraction and the FCN operation remains as is. The feature of ResNet architecture is exploited where just like VGG, as the number of filters double, the feature map size gets halved. This gives a similarity to VGG and ResNet architecture while supporting deeper architecture and addressing the issue of vanishing gradients while also being faster. The fully connected layer at the output of ResNet34 is not used and instead converted to fully convolutional layer by means of 1×1 convolution.

Architecture of VGG16-FCN model

In this model, VGG16 is used for feature extraction which also performs the function of an encoder. The fully connected layer of the VGG16 is not used and instead converted to fully convolutional layer by means of 1×1 convolution.
