Your Excellency stated that under this agreement, Bayanat will operate a platform that will be developed using the latest artificial intelligence technologies to analyze data and benefit from results that improve human life and advance the knowledge-based economy component.
Hassan Al Hossani says:Our partnership with the UAE Space Agency is the start of a roadmap that will find solutions to various challenges in the space ecosystem within the framework of our strategic objectives to leverage our technologies to enable innovation and leadership, the field has a lot to explore. “
He continued: “Advances in space applications and space information will undoubtedly help improve our daily lives and provide valuable data to track and monitor natural hazards and risks. From this perspective, we will continue to work with the UAE Space agencies to ensure improvements and further support the development of local and global space ecosystems.”
A Globally Competitive Space Economy
The geospatial analysis platform of the Spatial Data Center will help meet the main requirements of the transformation project announced by the UAE government, as part of its efforts to embody the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister Part ruler of the UAE and Dubai, focused on creating the most dynamic and best economy in the world.
Through the platform, the UAE Space Agency aims to facilitate access to satellite data for scientists, researchers, government and private institutions, start-ups and community members to develop solutions to support national and global challenges in the form of spatial data applications and value. Additional Services (VAS). In addition to its role in promoting international cooperation and partnerships.
The geospatial analytics platform will include a “marketplace” that allows start-ups, SMEs and entrepreneurs to design, develop and commercialize spatial applications and value-added services. The platform is expected to be fully operational by the fourth quarter of 2023.
The UAE Space Agency is keen to strengthen and increase the participation of the private sector in the development of the space sector in the United Arab Emirates, as these efforts are in line with the strategy of supporting national industry and transferring knowledge to achieve a knowledge economy based on innovation and advanced technologies.
