WHAT IS ESPER

Esper Satellite Imagery is an Australian start-up company working with hyperspectral imagery to gather intricate data about our earth from above. With the extensive analytical data collected by our imagers, Esper Satellite Imagery is paving the way to a more efficient and thus more sustainable future, especially for the world’s mining and agricultural industries.

THE ESPER TECHNOLOGY

Esper Satellite Imagery is developing a constellation of small satellites (CubeSats) loaded with hyperspectral imaging capabilities. From space, these satellites can provide regular, extensive data on a global scale. Hyperspectral imagery is able to capture an incredible number of wavelengths of light, and analyse them to a minute degree. Interpretation of this data can tell us about material composition, ore deposits beneath the earth’s surface, water quality, gas concentration, fire damage, and even plant stress.

APPLICATIONS

Agriculture

Agriculture

  • Regulate fertiliser usage
  • Optimise irrigation paths and schedules
  • Determine harvest period
  • Detect plant disease at an early stage
Mining

Mining

  • Manage and track daily commidity extraction
  • Detect new mineral deposits and hotspots by quantity during prospecting
  • Complete extraction in an enviromentally sustainable and efficient manner

WHO IS ESPER?

ESPER is a young, vibrant, multidisciplinary start-up company located in Melbourne, Australia. Esper Satellite Imagery began with a small team with a big dream: to help fight climate change, using space as our resource. Formerly known as Saturn Space, the team won first place at the 2019 UNIHACK Hackathon and has since incorporated to become Esper Satellites. We've been hard at work launching small, local projects and establishing working relationships. A full-realised ESPER will provide cross-industry accessibility, feasibility, and opportunity to businesses world-wide to strategize their business activities in benefit of the planet as well as themselves.

OUR VISION

We believe that sustainability shouldn’t have to come at a cost, and not becoming sustainable could cost us the world. We are developing a satellite constellation capable of hyperspectral imagery. We aim to collect, analyse, and sell that data to businesses to strategize the sustainable use of the earth's resources. Our assembly and use of satellite data can be used to streamline mining and agricultural processes to make them more efficient, to help industries become more environmentally sustainable without sacrificing profits.

OUR MISSION

To help fight climate change from space, using satellite technology.
