Maxar invests in Blackshark.ai to create 3D replica of Earth

Maxar invests in Blackshark.ai to create a 3D replica of Earth

 

What happened?

Maxar Technologies, a space and earth imagery company, has made a strategic investment in Blackshark.ai, a startup that specializes in creating digital 3D replicas of the planet. The size of the investment was not disclosed, but the arrangement will see Blackshark use Maxar's global cloudless satellite imagery base map called Vivid to create more immersive digital 3D maps. With this investment, Maxar is looking to bring in additional 3D capabilities for broader products.

 

 

Why is this important?

The digital twin concept is becoming increasingly popular as a way to manage and understand complex systems. By creating an accurate digital replica of Earth, Maxar and Blackshark will be able to offer new insights and solutions for a wide range of industries and applications. Aside from that, we will have a real-time feedback loop to let us know about the health of our planet if we have a true-time digital twin of Earth. It will assist people in treating the environment with greater care.

 

What's next? The digital replica of Earth created by Maxar and Blackshark will be an ongoing project that will continue to evolve and become more accurate over time. It's an ambitious undertaking, but one that could have a profound impact on the way we understand and manage our planet. We'll be watching closely to see how it develops. For now, we'll be keeping a close eye on Maxar and Blackshark as they continue to push the boundaries of digital mapping. Do you have any thoughts on this story? Share them in the comments below!
