Pinkmatter Solutions introduces an updated FarEarth for SmallSats service. This service offers new SmallSat entrants a user friendly, fast, and cost-effective means of receiving and processing imagery. The enhanced service offering follows the entire life of sensor; from pre-launch calibration to processing of the final image.

The service begins with pre-flight sensor modelling prior to launch. Post-launch in-flight calibration is performed by imaging calibration sites, utilizing publicly available sensors for cross-calibration. Both radiometric and geometric corrections are performed on the imagery. Pinkmatter Solutions remains a partner throughout the life of the SmallSat and offers periodic calibration. The FarEarth Acquisition System allows the received imagery data to be automatically uploaded to a cloud pick-up point for further processing. The service offering is provided as a complete cloud solution, allowing users access to the processed products which are securely stored in an archive. The imagery is easily accessed via a convenient catalogue which offers advanced image search, preview and download functionality.

Pinkmatter Solutions creates intelligent software which makes an impact and connects people to advanced Earth Observation science and technology. For new satellites, Pinkmatter Solutions develops custom sensor models, performs full calibration and validation of imagery data and provides information extraction applications.
