Orbit Logic today announced that British satellite company Seen by satellite has selected Orbit Logic’s collection planning software to operate its planned constellation of high-resolution thermal imaging satellites. Orbit Logic will provide software and engineering services including software configuration, training and custom model development beginning in May 2022.

Orbit Logic will provide its industry-leading CPAW (Collection Planning & Analysis Workstation) and Order Logic software products configured for the Satellite Vu constellation. These products will generate operational fidelity imagery programs and associated downlink plans for use in pre-launch constellation design, analysis and in-orbit operations. Plans generated by CPAW are output for order generation and to Order Logic for plan inspection and 3D visualization and animation.

CPAW uses high-fidelity system modeling and advanced planning algorithms to generate valid and optimized image collection plans for use in spacecraft operations and analysis. CPAW planning capabilities include contact planning and recorder management, power management and antenna modeling, imaging platform attitude/rotation planning, system availability, time constraints and sensor imaging mode modeling, as well as the resolution and optimization of associated collections.

Order Logic will also provide order management, collection feasibility, an API for integration with external software, and a secure multi-user web browser interface for operators, managers, and customers. Configurable permissions ensure that each user logging into Order Logic only has access to the data and functionality needed for their job.

“We are thrilled to be part of the Satellite Vu team developing such an innovative spatial thermal data solution to help build a more sustainable world.” said Alex Herz, president of Orbit Logic.

Anthony Baker, CEO of Satellite Vu, said, “We are excited to add Orbit Logic’s collection planning software to our state-of-the-art thermal monitoring satellites as we continue to count down the days to the launch. The space industry is at an exciting stage and our satellites are one of them, ready to make a significant difference in the fight against climate change by providing governments and businesses with the data they need to identify energy waste and minimizing carbon emissions, as well as helping to prevent the spread of fires and reduce water pollution.
