NOAA Grants Remote Sensing License to Sidus Space Ahead of Satellite Launch

Cape Canaveral, Florida-based Sidus Space has announced a Tier 1 remote sensing license from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to perform panchromatic and shortwave infrared imaging on LizzieSat satellites.

The NOAA clearance allows LizzieSat satellites to collect and distribute satellite photos and data for the public and private sectors, Sidus said Wednesday.

Onboard artificial intelligence processors are expected to combine the PAN and SWIR imagery with automated information systems and GPS data to provide near real-time status updates on marine traffic trends, illegal fishing and methane emissions.

The first LizzieSat is scheduled to enter orbit through SpaceX’s Transporter-10 mission in March to collect data for four years.

In December, Sidus said it installed an autonomous hardware and software suite on LizzieSat. Co-developed with NASA, the Autonomous Satellite Technology for Resilient Applications system is expected to allow the agency to send commands to an onboard flight computer to perform satellite operations.
