Orbit Logic adds augmented reality to SpyMeSat

by | Aug 30, 2021

Orbit Logic's award-winning SpyMeSat mobile app (available on the Apple App Store and Google Play) now includes an augmented reality (AR) interface to increase awareness of flying image satellites.

The AR view overlays the orbits and positions of satellites that can image your current location, giving you a better understanding of the satellite view's geometry and potential obstacles. For example, to find out if the image taken by that satellite at your location is hidden by trees or buildings.

The AR interface also displays relevant information about the satellite and its capabilities, such as path timing and dynamic geometry, and the resolution that can be achieved by satellite sensors.

In addition to real-time image satellite recognition, SpyMeSat provides on-demand access to recent archived satellite imagery and the ability to request new tasks directly from your mobile device. Multiphenomenology data (optical, infrared, synthetic aperture radar, etc.) is available through a simple in-app process of previewing, selecting, paying, and delivering, and can be completed in seconds. Quickly provide archived satellite imagery anywhere. on demand.

When archived images are inadequate and new data is needed, users can see available satellites, better understand the data collection environment through the AR interface, and purchase tasks based on cost, responsiveness, and capabilities. I can do it.

While standard SpyMeSat enables market interaction between public and commercial satellite imagery providers, Orbit Logic is custom to improve situational awareness and facilitate data access / tasks to support specific missions. We also develop mobile applications. The new AR interface enhances the effectiveness of these users' missions by giving them a better understanding of how data collection is affected by surrounding terrain and other spatial factors.

Examples of custom SpyMeSat deployments include government versions for government assets and versions for recognizing satellite communication opportunities for contact scheduling, data transfer, and command uplinks.
