Embrapa's Space Technology to Map Aquaculture in Brazil

Technology testing will be conducted by Embrapa Territorial with an application developed by the Brazilian Concert Space

The Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (Embrapa) plans to test satellite imaging technology to remotely map aquaculture in Brazil, increasing the agility in identifying producing regions. The test will be conducted by Embrapa Territorial as part of a technical-scientific cooperation agreement for automatic detection of excavated ponds for aquatic crops.

The application is being developed by the Brazilian company Concert Space. The satellite with the application will be placed in orbit by the Canadian Galaxia Mission Systems during the Möbius Mission, scheduled for 2025. The official signing to continue the partnership will take place this Wednesday (22) at the headquarters of Embrapa Territorial in Campinas (SP).

According to Lucíola Magalhães, deputy head of research and development, the expectation is that the technology will facilitate the annual updating of nurseries excavated in all municipalities in Brazil. The availability of data on the segment can also contribute to the promotion of public policies and sector statistics, says the researcher.

The project will use a technology called SDS (Software Defined Satellite), which allows missions to be changed during the operation. Today, traditional satellites perform a single function throughout their lifetime.

This change should allow the use of equipment for more diverse applications, reducing costs, among other advantages.

Satellite constellation

The Möbius mission intends to launch several SDS-type satellites for imaging, communication and cloud computing. The launch with Embrapa will be the first in the series and will serve as a proof of concept for another space program – Bifrost –, from the Brazilian Concert Space, which intends to launch three SDS satellites into low Earth orbit (LEO) for remote sensing.

Satellites are built to be low-cost, quickly manufactured and have an average lifespan of around five years. The constellation architecture, the companies say, allows for business models that optimize investment and maintain a permanent flow of manufacturing and launches, enabling the Satellite as a Service business model, in which a mission can be shared by multiple users.

“The constellation can be used in different ways and in different industries, such as communication, information technology, agribusiness and others, enhancing the ability to meet the demands of the national and international market”, says the CEO of Concert Space, Rafael Mordente.

Concert is a Brazilian operational technology (OT) company with more than 40 years of experience in the energy and aerospace sectors. Customers include large energy concessionaires, such as Cemig and Light, as well as the Alcântara Launch Center, in Maranhão.
