Satellites out there in space take snaps of our earth and send in back to us for some spectacular applications like maps, street views etc... We, technological addicts, have witnessed our earth in images as this far. But EarthNow, a private firm is planning to end that scenario of watching earth through images. Instead of images, they advising for a real-time video experience of earth.
EarthNow patched up with some funding firms like Soft Bank group, Bill Gates, Airbus and Greg Wyler to complete the first stage of the process of getting actions of the earth in live streaming. The CEO of EarthNow promised for Earth's real-time images and videos that could last for minutes, hours and even for days from space.
One can easily view any corner of the earth in online that would lead us to understand our earth even more clearly.
Russell Hannigan, the CEO of EarthNow said that the firm is preparing to deliver the real-time videos of earth commercially to governmental and also for personal customers. He said that the EarthNow will help to locate hurricanes and storms before they evolve, even forest fires, volcanic eruptions, illegal fishing, and conflict zones across the world.
EarthNow can track the migration of whales, stunning images and videos of earth that could be assessed from mobile phone and tablets. This will serve as an important application to humans to get connect with earth visually and to make forwarding steps towards pouring some ultimate care for the earth.
For this ultimate idea, the EarthNow uses a constellation of satellites that possess some high number of CPUs than the ordinary commercial satellites that orbiting the earth currently. The EarthNow had also aimed to deliver videos with less than one-second latency, for that the firm decided to install some high-performance compression hardware in the satellite.
Of course, there is a need of some dozens of satellites to make the above possible hence the advanced production line of Airbus stood out to manufacture some earth observatory satellites.
Apart from the real-time experience, this application will help us, humans, to feel the impact that we created on the earth.
