Dassault Systèmes announced that space tech startup GalaxEye is using its 3DEXPERIENCE platform. GalaxEye will bring unique datasets to businesses and government agencies that will enable strategic decisions directly linked with the Indian economy such as national policies associated with disaster management, energy, mining, defense and the marine sector. Leveraging the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, GalaxEye aims to build India’s first commercial multi-sensor constellation of satellites, equipped with their patent-pending Drishti sensor, which is expected to launch in 2023. The constellation is expected to be in orbit within five years to provide “data as a service” to commercial customers.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform will be used to develop technology and monitor earth in a more efficient and effective manner. The space-based geospatial technology and data-collection techniques will allow GalaxEye to rely on meticulous information gathering on ocean currents, soil moisture, air quality, and several other phenomena to predict changes on earth. This data will be critically important to businesses as well as government agencies working to set policies and monitor compliance. Through the platform, GalaxEye is developing technologies to deliver meaningful data from space such as details of an area of interest on Earth. This dataset will enable advanced image processing products and processes such as data fusion and cloud removal to further help provide insight at any time of the day or night, regardless of weather conditions.
Deepak NG, Managing Director India, Dassault Systèmes, said, “The commercial space industry, driven by organizations like GalaxEye, are making giant leaps in space infrastructure, exploration and satellite technology. Together we can fuel disruptive innovations in the overall ecosystem and support multiple core industries across India. GalaxEye is part of our ongoing endeavors to support startups with innovation and research capabilities, for development of the country. The synergy between Dassault Systèmes’ powerful 3DEXPERIENCE platform and GalaxEye’s proprietary space technologies will help in solving various real world problems across industries.”
Suyash Singh, Co-founder, GalaxEye, said, “There is immense potential in space tech, which can be harnessed to transform the efficiency and efficacy of different industries and sectors. We are excited and encouraged to join hands with Dassault Systèmes, to create solutions that can have positive, tangible impact of massive scale in various core-sectors contributing to India’s growth and economy.”
GalaxEye was founded in 2020 by a team of five students and alumni of Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. Their vision is to develop technologies that work in space, monitoring both earth and outer space, while accelerating the growth of space infrastructure. They are moving fast towards their ambition to launch a constellation of advanced earth observation satellites capturing the most meaningful dataset from space.
Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a collaborative environment that empowers businesses and people to innovate in entirely new ways and create products and services using virtual experiences. The platform provides a real-time view of a business’ activity and ecosystem, connecting people, ideas, and data, allowing everyone involved to interact and work together.
