This image of the artificial Palm Islands on the coast of Dubai was captured by the DubaiSat-2 Earth observation satellite.

The Emirates Institution for Advanced Science and Technology (EISAT) promoted a remote sensing applications competition to use imagery from DubaiSat-2 and received 20 concepts. Now the concepts are being further developed for presentation to a panel of judges that will assess their benefits, creativity and innovation.

The competition has drawn a good response from students in the United Arab Emirates from schools such as the Khalifa University of Science, Technology and Research, United Arab Emirates University, American University of Sharjah and University of Wollongong in Dubai.

Explained EISAT Director General H.E. Yousuf Al Shaibani, "The competition is primarily aimed at raising awareness among the young generations of Emiratis, introducing them to new advancements in the space field within the UAE, through the use of state-owned remote sensing satellites, and how these smart applications and systems can serve governmental sectors in various fields.”

The applications cover several application areas, such as change detection in infrastructure, water and vegetation as well as monitoring Earth systems. The projects will be displayed and the winners announced at the Global Space and Satellite Forum, taking place in Abu Dhabi from May 26-28, 2015.
