Airbus announces finalists of Multi-Data Challenge within Copernicus Masters 2018

Toulouse, 24 September 2018 – Airbus Defence and Space announced today the names of the three finalists of the Airbus Multi-Data Challenge organised as part of the Copernicus
Masters 2018.


The Copernicus Masters is an international competition that awards prizes to innovative solutions, developments and ideas for industry and society based on Earth observation data. Annually, different prize categories tackle global challenges with revolutionary competition entries amongst others in the fields of deep learning, IoT, big data analytics, smart mobility
and industry 4.0.


Launching on 1 April, the Airbus Multi-Data Challenge looked for solutions that use both Sentinel and Airbus Earth observation data to deliver value-added services for specific communities and markets, such as Smart Cities, Maritime, Defence & Security, Forestry and Agriculture. The selected participants got access to datasets via the OneAtlas Sandbox
Platform, in order to elaborate solutions both technically feasible and commercially viable.


Amongst the numerous projects specifically submitted for the Multi-Data Challenge, three
have been selected for the Airbus award (alphabetical order):

  • AgroApps PC, which proposes ACTEON, a solution allowing Agriculture Insurance companies to design their products and assess the impact of natural disasters at pixel level, enabling them to verify the occurrence of a calamity and to predict future perils.

  • Channel Logistics LLC, which proposes a maritime GEOINT (Geospatial Intelligence as a service, allowing identification of nefarious activities and potential asymmetric threats, thanks to artificial intelligence and predictive analysis applied to maritime, satellite and governance data.

  • Klokan Technologies GmbH, which proposes an alternative to Google Maps API powered by open data, providing ads-free personalised maps, protecting the privacy of users and running offline.

 The winner will be announced on 4 December by the Copernicus Masters 2018 organisers during the European Space Week. He will receive a voucher worth € 100,000 towards the ordering of Airbus satellite data and benefit from both technical and business coaching.
