Australia's first earth observation mission
As Featured In
Esper is going above and beyond to deliver data that no one has seen before with our in-house developed system, we can paint a clearer picture of the earth’s surface. Capturing more information to guide you to make better decisions.
We’re advancing Earth observation by collecting data across a wider spectral range and in a higher spatial resolution than standard satellites. Our cameras capture reflected light across 217 bands producing an information rich data set known as the Hypercube that can be used to determine material composition.
Sustainability shouldn’t come at a cost. Esper is creating a better future for the earth, by capturing data from space.
We deliver detailed information about our planet daily to industry leaders to increase efficiency, cut down costs and minimise environmental impacts. See the world as you’ve never seen it before with Esper’s hyperspectral imagery. With Esper’s data, you can track and identify a wide range of materials around the earth.
Methane is one of the main contributors to global warming. It is even more potent than carbon dioxide, warming the earth 80 times more over the first 20 years in the atmosphere. Tracking methane emissions is crucial in mitigating climate change and it has never been easier with hyperspectral imaging. Hyperspectral imaging enables monitoring the amount of methane around the earth’s surface which helps identify super-emitters. Super-emitters are infrastructures and equipment that emit the gas at high rates. Esper’s data can locate, down to facility scale, points of interest allowing quick action to limit emissions from the source.
Global data, universal applications.
Esper’s satellite imagers can measure the most minute parts of our planet – from testing water quality and plant health for fruitful farming, to locating ore deposits for more mindful mining, to tracking the effects of climate change for future generations.
The flexibility of our data allows you to acquire information to suit your specific needs.
With 80 times the warming power of carbon dioxide, invisible methane leakages from oil and gas fields drive unnecessary climate change.
Exploratory activities for green minerals behind climate-friendly technologies, such as copper, lithium, and gold, often require large-scale excavations.
Carbon capture in forests and farms is difficult to monitor, as current data collection methods rely on manual observations. With a global appetite to shift economies into carbon markets, accurate and large-scale emissions data is a key requirement.
