PRESS UPDATE: European Space Imaging signs contract with Maxar to sell SecureWatch and EarthWatch

European Space Imaging today signed a contract with Maxar Technologies, a trusted partner and global innovator in Earth intelligence and space infrastructure, to offer SecureWatch and EarthWatch to customers based in Europe, North Africa and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS countries).

The innovative and industry-leading products are subscription-based services that provide customers online and offline access to global content layers through one interface. The products provide instant access to Maxar’s WorldView satellite imagery and geospatial data while empowering customers with the flexibility to only pay for content that they consume via a per gigabyte price model. Customers can select fit-for-purpose geodata, whether they need the latest image, a time series, or mosaics, from anywhere in the world with no concurrent user limit.

Commercial and civil government customers subscribe to EarthWatch for use cases like monitoring changes of assets like structures and pipelines, and proactively preparing for and managing emergency situations with the best information commercially available. Defence and intelligence customers use SecureWatch to access and analyze geospatial information in support of national security. SecureWatch also provides access to MDA’s RADARSAT-2 synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data for all weather location monitoring.

“We are very pleased to be able to add these diverse and industry leading products to our portfolio” said Adrian Zevenbergen, Managing Director European Space Imaging. “We strive to continue to be the European leader of VHR optical satellite imagery, providing rapid delivery to our customers. The addition of EarthWatch and SecureWatch further enhances our ability to do this.”

“SecureWatch and EarthWatch provide users with an easy way to access and extract insights from Maxar’s industry-leading imagery and geodata,” said Jeff Culwell, Maxar’s Chief Product Officer. “We are pleased that our long-time partner European Space Imaging will be incorporating our products to help their customers make critical decisions.”

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 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.
