Spacept – Artificial Intelligence for Space Data Analytics to Tackle Climate Change and Save Lives
Spacept is a software platform with specialised computer vision systems that process Earth observation satellite data on infrastructure to enable safer, more efficient, and sustainable operation and maintenance. The mission is in line with Sustainable Development Goals 9 (Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure) and 13 (Climate Action).
Thanks to European (Copernicus) and American (Planet and Digital Globe) satellite data providers, analyses can be delivered anywhere on the planet at a quarter of the price of existing solutions.
The Spacept solution saves lives and eliminates CO2 emissions while also radically reducing the time and costs involved in infrastructure inspections.

In addition to using Copernicus data and other Earth observation satellite data, participants are encouraged to supplement their ideas with other sources of data, such as information generated by crowd-sourcing, social media or in-situ measurements. Ideas should support professionals working in these areas, inform the public, or empower public authorities to take action and solve issues on a local, national, or global scale.
Areas of particular interest to DLR are:
