Automatic Detection of Parking-Lot Space With Satellite Data Challenges and Points of Improvement for the Joint Project by Sakura Internet, akippa, and Ridge-i

During a talk session on August 4, it was announced that Sakura Internet, akippa, and Ridge-i are working together to develop an algorithm that uses satellite data to find space that can be rented out for parking cars, so we decided to talk with them about the challenges they face whilst developing this service, and the success they have made using Sharp's super-resolution technology.

This is the forefront of the SAR image! Viewing images taken by ICEYE on Tellus!

One of the big up and coming technologies in the space industry right now is SAR (synthetic-aperture radar), and the global company on the forefront of this technology is a company stationed in Finland called ICEYE. This company recently made headlines when they achieved a SAR resolution of 25 cm.

Introduction

Structural Classifications Using SAR Polarimetry (Polarimetric Decomposition)

In today's article, we will be testing out whether or not you can use polarimetric decomposition to differentiate between natural and man-made objects.

Introduction

Do Smaller Antenna Really Correlate With Higher Resolution? Thorough Examination of One of SAR’s Mysteries Without Using any Formulas!

This time, we are speaking with a broad group of people who are interested in SAR images, including an engineer who processes them, to a business developer, obsessed with the SAR industry, to learn what determines the resolution of SAR images from top to bottom.

Using Lightning Observation Data for Free! Learning About the Science Behind Different Types of Lightning

A long long time ago, lightning used to be feared. Even today, it still has a large impact on our everyday lives in the form of power outages and lightning surges. Lightning observation data allows us to understand when and where lightning will strike. Today, we will be looking into what causes lightning, and getting to learn how to use Tellus' lightning data.
