Observing Emissions from Space (Low-Earth Observation ("LEO"))

Encino has entered into a joint venture (JV) with a space technology company – providing advanced optical payloads for LEO applications. Multi-spectral science incorporated within the optical device provides high-resolution imagery with extremely low minimum detectable limits (MDLs) which enable customers to "screen" critical assets with high-frequency revisitation (12 passes per day). This system creates a network of feedback loops which allow customers to quickly respond to emissions events (e.g., greenhouse gases (GHGs)) and identify reduction opportunities. EmSAT™ emissions data is collected though a proprietary system and analyzed by our team of data professionals. Both pre- and post-processed data can be ingested into any enterprise resource planning (ERP) platform through configuration of an application programming interface (API).

Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI)

In the world of remote sensing, resolution (and sensitivity) is directly proportional to the quality and performance of the optical package. While the optics utilized in Earth observation (from Space) are optimized through material selection, milling, and performance testing – they are subject to "noise" relating to subspace and atmospheric interferences (radiative transfer). To compensate for the physical limitations of space-based optical sensing, SATLANTIS has developed ML, AI, and embedded logic at the edge to further enhance image processing and emissions insights.

Key capabilities include:

  • Detection and quantification of methane emissions and point-source carbon dioxide;
  • Marine ecosystem monitoring and detection of plastics/floating debris along coastlines and within oceans;
  • Agility – ability to follow/track non-linear systems such as pipeline infrastructure and coastlines;
  • Maritime surveillance (multispectral analysis techniques are not subject to spectral contamination (e.g., water vapor, nitrogen compounds, etc.);
  • Forestry and agriculture monitoring (foliage health monitoring and forest fires);
  • Infrastructure monitoring (critical assets such as pipeline systems and utilities); and
  • Basic and thematic cartography.

Encino and Satlantis are aligned to create a vertically integrated emissions monitoring and quantification "ecosystem" which enables customers to develop, enhance, and/or augment their current GHG Emissions and Sustainability Program. Through the democratization of space technology, industry now has access to high-quality satellite data in real, or near-real time. Due to the lower costs associated with the deployment and operation of microsatellites (as compared to geo-stationary or mid-orbit), the Encino and SATLANTIS Team believe that "satellites as a service" can be delivered efficiently – providing a cost-effective option for remote sensing and GHG surveillance.

To Compliance and Beyond!

Encino Satlantis Joint Venture

Encino has entered into a JV with SATLANTIS to bring satellite coverage to North America and the Energy Sector. We are excited about this relationship and the opportunity to provide high-resolution GHG detection and quantification solutions to our customers. With the satellite offering, Encino is positioned to offer industry the ability to go beyond compliance.
