In addition to its own constellation, through a strategic partnership with the Chinese national Earth observation operators, HEAD has access to a wide portfolio of Chinese civilian on-orbit Earth observation (EO) satellite. Through a data fusion approach of EO and AIS data, HEAD will provide commercial value-added services to various sectors including maritime, IoT, agriculture, finance, etc.
