Building the world’s most advanced machine learning platform for Earth-observing satellite data and geospatial information.

The amount of Earth Observing (EO) data that has been collected by government and non-government organizations is astounding. More than 200 petabytes of unique EO data have been gathered since 1972, when the first Landsat satellite was launched. Each day, more than 50 terabytes of new data are added. For comparison, the entire Library of Congress comprises about 20 terabytes of information. Embedded in this data are answers to some of the world's most intractable problems as well as new insights into how the complexity and interdependency of natural and human systems work. At the nexus of machine learning, big data computing, and EO satellites, Astraea is a software company developing cutting-edge technology to solve complex planetary problems. Due to the reduced cost of satellite technology and the availability of new sensor technologies, there is an explosion of EO data waiting to be leveraged. Astraea is empowering corporations, organizations, and individuals to easily access, analyze, and extract actionable insights about our planet.
