Satellite Vu will use Orbit Logic’s collection planning software for the operation of its planned constellation of high-resolution thermal imaging satellites, the two companies announced June 21. Orbit Logic will deliver software and engineering services including software configuration, training, and custom model development.

Orbit Logic’s Collection Planning & Analysis Workstation (CPAW) and Order Logic software products will be configured for the Satellite Vu constellation. These products will generate operational-fidelity imaging schedules and related downlink plans for use in pre-launch constellation design, analysis, and on-orbit operations.

CPAW uses high fidelity system modelling and advanced scheduling algorithms to generate valid and optimized imagery collection plans for use in spacecraft operations and analysis.

“We are delighted to add Orbit Logic’s collection planning software to our state-of-the-art thermal monitoring satellites as we continue to count down the days to launch. The space industry is at an exciting stage and our satellites are a part of that, poised to make a significant difference in the fight against climate change by providing governments and businesses with the data they need to identify energy wastage and minimise carbon emissions, as well as contributing to preventing fire spread and reducing water pollution,” Anthony Baker, CEO of Satellite Vu, said in a statement.
