The VANTAGE platform

Where satellite video meets AI

VANTAGE is a cloud-based online environment where users can analyse videos acquired from Earth Observation satellites, and extract value for their own research and business purposes.

It offers an archive of videos acquired from satellites, including data from the Earth-i Vivid-X2 satellite that was launched in 2018, plus a wealth of still images from the Sentinel and Landsat satellites.

Alongside the data is a rich repository of tools to process these videos and extract value from them – including derivation of 3D models, detection of objects of interest in the videos (such as maritime vessels in a port), extraction of movement vectors, and building up cloud-free composite images.

The value of satellite video

Capturing video from Earth Observation (EO) is one of the most exciting innovations to hit the remote sensing world in recent times. High-resolution, full-colour EO video is enabling fundamental and disruptive changes for the Geospatial Intelligence and Earth Observation industries.

EO Video provides several advantages over still imagery, for example:

• It enables faster and more accurate object recognition using AI and machine learning;
• It enables 3D models to be created to much higher precision than from a single stereo pair;
• It provides more contextual information to analysts and researchers, by capturing movement;
• It allows for more accurate change detection including detection of 3D changes over time;
• It provides the ability to mitigate patchy cloud and haze in a scene to derive a clear image.

Even richer use cases emerge when one combines EO video analytics with complementary geospatial information sources to generate information products for end users.

Earth-i is a geospatial intelligence company using machine learning, artificial intelligence and Earth Observation data to provide unique and relevant insights, derived from diverse geospatial data, that deliver clear decision advantage for businesses, governments and other organisations.Earth-i provides advanced analytics using automated interpretation of a range of geospatial Earth Observation data sources including colour imagery, colour video, infra-red and radar from a range of sources including satellite, drone, aerial and ground-based sensors. This data is fused with additional data sources to extract factual understanding and generate predictive insights across a range of markets such as commodities, supply chain, agriculture, infrastructure and defence.



CGI provides services to the earth observation sector. CGI has a 40 year heritage of working with the space industry from the UK, Germany, Netherlands and Estonia.

We are achieving this by exploiting the innovation potential in the UK industrial and academic communities, by being a focal point where small and medium enterprises, large industry and end users can work together with researchers to challenge barriers, explore and develop new ideas, and bring these to commercial reality.




The European Space Agency (ESA) is Europe’s gateway to space. Its mission is to shape the development of Europe’s space capability and ensure that investment in space continues to deliver benefits to the citizens of Europe and the world. ESA provided funding and sponsorship, culminating in the release of the SAVANT product.
