This challenge will focus on how to use satellite data to improve the safety and security of all of us here on planet Earth. The Big Data Revolution helped our advancement in the field, now we want to take this a step further! Geospatial imagery offers an enormous amount of data that can help us assess security risks, detect and monitor national and personal threats and model emergency scenarios.
So, how can we use the advantages of remote sensing from satellites to detect terror activities? What new insights can we generate using satellite imagery? How can we combine different sources of data to reveal new information? How can this help us in strategical and tactical operations, combat missions, navigation, modeling, planning, monitoring and detecting threats?
Together with our expert mentors and partners, you will discover the power of data science and satellite imagery in the field of Home Land Security.
In all challenges we encourage you to
merge EO (Electro Optical) and SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) data
combine low and high resolution images
add relevant data from other reliable sources
Here we challenge you to use geospatial data for Auto detection, Monitoring and Comparison: Create an algorithm that can analyze key elements and objects in images and can create a detailed description of the area. Use satellite imagery to detect and monitor patterns and changes in patterns in strategic locations such as airports and parking lots and help uncover new information that can be used to lower and prevent homeland security threats.
