This year’s challenge is with Atos at the heart of a number of activities in space, including:
- Satellite imagery data processing and analytics
- Satellite operating systems
- Satellite monitoring systems
- Providing IT services to Space Agencies
- Involvement in special projects such as the experiments performed by Rosetta’s Philae Lander on comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko.
There are a wide range of topics that could be explored within this theme, including simulation, communications, analysis of existing data (both imagery and from radio telescopes), object tracking, rocketry, astronomy, astrophysics and more. Earth Observation satellite data is available from a number of sources, including the Sentinel Hub, the Copernicus Open Access Hub, Amazon Web Services and we encourage competition participants to explore the Atos Mundi Web Services Platform with Very High Resolution Satellite Imagery.
Data of this nature, acquired from space, can be used for projects on planet Earth – supporting agriculture, geographic and topological analysis, meteorology and, increasingly importantly, addressing climate change through decarbonisation.
The application of a variety of technologies and techniques can support student team investigations such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, analytics, image analysis, APIs, and platforms.
We are looking for student teams to develop a mobile or web application in the theme of space that will be of benefit to society at large.
Set up a team from 2 to maximum 4 students.
Any students enrolled at university or in an engineering school during the academic year 2021-2022 can participate!
