METI Journal, a public relations magazine of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, reported that Polar Star Space succeeded in identifying anomalous trees affected by diseases in demonstration experiments at oil palm plantations in Malaysia and banana plantations in the Philippines. »
Polar Star Space has joined the "Space ICT Promotion Forum" established by the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) in collaboration with the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). »
In the Strategic Fundamental Technology Advancement Support Project (Supporting Project), the "Development and Sales of Agricultural Disease Extraction and Distribution Service System" project in which Polar Star Space participates was adopted. »
At the "2018 Entrepreneur Expo" sponsored by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications and the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT), Polar Star Space received the "Judges' Special Award" and the sponsoring company's Special Award, "AWS (AWS). Received "Amazon Web Services) Award" and "Panasonic Award". »
Polar Star Space received the NICT Award at the "No Maps NEDO Dream Pitch" with Entrepreneur Expo, sponsored by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry's Hokkaido Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry and the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO). »
Nowadays, information about space exploration is being broadcast on a daily basis.
In Japan as well, the environment for private companies to enter the space business is being set up.
One of the tailwinds is that the "Space Activity Law" was approved by the Cabinet.
Until now, satellite remote sensing, which has not been put into practical use, has finally become a reality as the development of microsatellite progresses.
In collaboration with Hokkaido University and Tohoku University, the spectral information obtained from microsatellite will be one of the best in the world.
We will develop a space-scale IOT business
by multiplying these observation data with the data obtained from ground equipment (drone, smartphone integrated spectrometer).
Polar Star Space Co., Ltd.
CEO Takahiro Nakamura
Polar Star Space is a business company founded for the purpose of provision data-driven problem-solving services
in fields such as agriculture, fishery, resources / energy, and disaster prevention,
based on the technologies of Hokkaido University, Tohoku University, and Shiga University of Medical Science, as a venture from Hokkaido University,
In the global $ 200 billion space industry market, commercial use of remote sensing is a promising area for future expansion.
The realization of global daily measurement using multiple microsatellite by US satellite company Planet Labs means that
the door to new satellite utilization competition has opened against the heavy and long conventional satellite competition.
We aim to operate multiple microsatellite equipped with LCTF cameras
as a unique strategy to realize "problem-solving", "on-demand" and "flexible" satellite observations required for commercial use of satellites.
Initially, it will provide value in the agricultural field, which is closely related to population explosion and global environmental problems
and requires scientific control of harvesting.
Specifically, we will discover lesions based on soil and leaf spectrum measurements using our proprietary smartphone spectrometer and drone-mounted LCTF camera,
and support optimization of fertilization and pesticide use.
Through these efforts, we will establish a spectrum library that derives accurate measurement results even in spectrum measurement
with a certain angle to the earth's surface, which will lead to the realization of spectrum remote sensing on microsatellite in the future.
Achieving accurate spectral measurements with angles can be a source of strong competitive advantage in satellite observations.
The purpose of this project is to realize the world's first solution to all possible problems on the ground
through spectral remote sensing and to contribute to the solution of problems on a global scale.
