Edinburgh / Zug, 22 December 2021. – Swiss start-up Dotphoton and ESA have signed their second contract and will continue the development of a metrologically correct image compression technology for space applications, Dotphoton announced.

The aim of the new contract is to further develop, test and apply Dotphoton’s quantum-inspired compression technology. The product will reduce Earth Observation (EO) image data processing and storing costs. Improving scalability and reliability of AI-based analysis of EO data will also reduce CO2 emissions by about 5 times.

Dotphoton combines the highest quality of lossless image formats with the flexibility and speed of lossy formats, the company said. The firm will continue working with ESA under the General Support Technology Programme, supported by ESA’s participating states.
