As it stands today, 90% of monitoring resources are spent on non-issues, while only 10% is spent on tackling actual problems. Orbital Sidekick’s low-cost/high-fidelity objective remote sensing solution seeks to invert that ratio and allow the industry to focus its resources where they really matter.

  • Regulatory Compliance
  • Leak Detection
  • Product Speciation
  • Pipeline and Facility Security
  • Intrusion Detection
  • Right-of-Way Health Monitoring

Surveying And Extraction

Rapid and global-scale surveying of existing and future extraction sites has never been more simple, affordable, and precise.

  • Oil & Gas
  • Rare Earth Elements (Lithium, Cobalt, etc)
  • Industrial footprint
  • Mineral identification
  • Site monitoring
  • Surface content


Inefficient monitoring of infrastructure has led to safety and budgetary headaches on regional and national levels.

  • Pavement health
  • Bridge conditions
  • Rail line health
  • Inland waterway conditions
  • Corrosion
  • Bathymetry

Environmental Monitoring

Objective monitoring of our shared resources is unlocked with the power of Orbital Sidekick’s Spectral Intelligence™ platform.

  • Atmospheric health
  • Water pollution
  • Air quality
  • Land pollution
  • Water resource management
  • Hazardous material detection
  • Environmental monitoring


Precision agriculture is booming, and with it brings uncertainty in which technologies and methods to trust and invest. With 100x more vegetative indices at our analysts’ fingertips by way of hyperspectral datasets when compared to existing remote sensing solutions, we can provide confidence in our objective results to aid this growing industry.

  • Soil health
  • Soil content
  • Crop health
  • Evapotranspiration
  • Crop identification
  • Invasive species monitoring
  • System stress
  • Water management
  • Protein content
  • Forestry


Hyperspectral technology can provide plume, camouflage, and target detection, along with space situational awareness which is especially useful in denied areas of access. Hyperspectral data sets can be utilized to detect chemical weapon signatures, identify military resources and troop movement, and aid with relief efforts.

  • Camouflage detection
  • Plume detection
  • Target identification
  • Material classification
  • Space Situational Awareness
