The Danish Ministry of Defence has contracted with Danish companions for improvement and deployment of a synthetic intelligence-based surveillance satellite tv for pc for monitoring of the Danish arctic areas. Terma offers the AI mannequin for the satellite tv for pc. The satellite tv for pc has just lately accomplished the Preliminary Design Evaluation (PDR). The Danish Defence has an essential and rising problem in relation to surveillance and intelligence gathering within the Arctic space. A significant process for the Danish Defence is detection of various kinds of land, maritime and aerial exercise within the space. The monitoring of exercise within the three domains from area can help the Danish Defence within the process of imposing sovereignty and contribute to different operational duties, e.g., Search and Rescue, in addition to present enter for the day-to-day operational planning.

Terma has entered a collaboration with a number of nationwide in addition to worldwide companions. The undertaking can be initiated as a joint mission composed of the efforts of Terma, House Inventor, Gatehouses SatCom and the Technical College of Denmark (DTU). The undertaking is a satellite-based system for superior on-orbit picture and sign evaluation. The undertaking is named BIFROST and could have the principle goal of demonstrating AI primarily based surveillance from area with the purpose of creating a platform in area to achieve additional expertise in AI-based surveillance and sensor fusion utilizing a number of on-board sensors. The mission will have the ability to present info on utilized AI in area for earth statement missions in addition to detecting ships, oil spills and rather more because of the versatile payloads on-board.


The AI mannequin used for the system can be supplied by Terma. The satellite tv for pc may even take a look at technique of communication instantly between totally different satellites to attain real-time entry to the intelligence knowledge, thereby demonstrating the feasibility of Tactical Earth Statement. It will show that the presence of a selected exercise may be detected and reported to the operational floor controller in real-time. Terma believes the undertaking has the potential to kind a broad nationwide basis for the area know-how wanted to assist Danish Defence sooner or later and can be a steppingstone in the direction of a future worldwide cooperation relating to space-based surveillance actions of frequent curiosity. The satellite tv for pc mission contains evaluating the potential of adjusting AI fashions through the mission lifespan, which makes it attainable for the substitute intelligence core to study the traits of recent topics of curiosity thereby continuously including to the capabilities of the surveillance system.

Lately, the undertaking has achieved a milestone with the completion of the Preliminary Design Evaluation (PDR). The PDR is a part of the method guaranteeing that the technical design meets the set necessities for a excessive performing AI satellite tv for pc supporting operational actions within the Arctic Area. The following step is the Important Design Evaluation (CDR) the place the AI fashions are developed, and the detailed design of the payload and the spacecraft itself are accomplished. The satellite tv for pc is deliberate for launch in early 2024. The Denmark primarily based high-tech Terma Group develops merchandise and techniques for protection and non-defense safety purposes; together with command and management techniques, radar techniques, self-protection techniques for plane, area know-how, and aerostructures for the plane trade.
