The challenge

Earthcube’s initial idea came as Arnaud and Renaud discussed the potential to use satellite imagery to monitor extended critical infrastructures such as oil & gas pipelines. Arnaud used to work in the energy industry and was aware of the need for appropriate monitoring solutions. With Renaud, a former Airbus DS engineer, they combine a strong expertise on industrial asset monitoring and earth observation.
Earthcube developed in 2016 with the support of Lionel Moisan, an expert globally recognized in change detection, a proprietary solution to automatically detect anormal changes in time series of satellite images. The technology we developed combines deep learning and computer vision technics. 

The solution

We decided to focus our development at first on two types of industries : the oil and gas industry and the security & defense industry. This second type of customers represent the largest share of today’s satellite imagery market and they are in need of increasing analysis automatization.
Additionally, we believe we can leverage the technology we developed for our current customers  to other market segments such as economic intelligence. We decided to focus our development at first on two types of industries : the oil and gas industry and the security & defense industry.
