Tridge summary

The Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (Embrapa) is set to test advanced satellite imaging technology in a cooperation with Brazilian company Concert Space and Canadian Galaxia Mission Systems. The technology will be used for remote mapping of aquaculture areas, allowing for more efficient identification of productive regions in Brazil. This could facilitate the updating of excavated nurseries across the country. The technology will be launched in 2025 as part of the Möbius Mission, which aims to reduce costs and offer a wide range of applications through its Software Defined Satellite (SDS) technology. The constellation of SDS-type satellites will have a useful life of around 5 years and will be used in various industries, including agribusiness.

The Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (Embrapa) plans to test one of the most advanced satellite imaging technologies. The test will be conducted by Embrapa Territorial as part of the technical-scientific cooperation agreement for automatic detection of excavated ponds for aquaculture. The application is being developed by the Brazilian company Concert Space and the satellite with the application will be placed into orbit by the Canadian Galaxia Mission Systems, through the Möbius Mission, scheduled for 2025. The technology could give remote aquaculture mapping greater agility in identifying producing regions in Brazil. According to Lucíola Magalhães, deputy head of Research and Development, the expectation is that the new technology will facilitate the annual updating of excavated nurseries, not only for the municipalities already mapped by the Embrapa Territorial team, but for all municipalities in Brazil. In addition to its relevance for research in aquaculture, the ...
