GSIF – GMSPAZIO Satellite Imaging Forecast

GSIF – GMSPAZIO Satellite Imaging Forecast

GSIF is a toolset aimed to offer end-users the possibility to know immediately which satellite, one or a constellation of them, from a predefined user’s list, is/are able to image an user area of interest.

With few clicks the end-user is able to get:

  • First Imaging Function: calculates the first available opportunity of imaging for a user defined target or a list of them
  • Revisit Time Function: calculates the revisit time for a user defined target or a list of them

Data about satellites orbital positions are daily updated from two international database (AGI™-Satellite Database & CelesTrack© Database) into the local end-user database on the way to propagate and evaluate with the highest accuracy as possible each satellite position over the time.

Satellite acquisition capabilities are fully evaluated, also in presence of tiltable satellites (satellites able to point their cameras to acquire a side target), this is obtained introducing the concept of Real sensor swath width, inside a Virtual satellite acquisition capabilities.

Built mainly upon one of the leading simulation engine, it features the same advanced 2D and 3D interfaces and it’s fully compatible with OpenGL standards.

GSIF provides information related to remote sensing satellite missions of user interests using a preloaded satellite database containing also the specification of satellite sensors as per the following parameters:

  • Satellite name
  • Mission provider
  • Sensor name
  • Sensor type (Optical/Radar)
  • Model name
  • Resolution (Ground Sample Distance)
  • Etc

It is to be remarked that GSIF functionalities allow also to consider the pointing capabilities of a tiltable satellite, thus giving the customer the possibility to evaluate which kind of inclined image he can acquire and to which extent the viewing angle can perform.

This feature, together with the capability to evaluate many missions results simultaneously, offer the end-user the capability to interact better with satellite image providers to produce realiable answers in very short time.

Users may modify the database inserting new missions/satellites or deleting existing ones. GSIF show the results of query into a 2D and 3D maps plus in report format available to be exported for further usages.
