Vision Egypt News: - Intel helped launch PhiSat-1 in sun-synchronous orbit on September 2 to begin its journey around Earth's orbit.

(PhiSat-1), a new small satellite that contains a super-spectrum thermal camera (HyperScout-2), and also includes a vision processing unit (Movidius Myriad 2).

The vision processing unit, found in everything from cameras to drones, provides data-processing capabilities aided by artificial intelligence.

The artificial intelligence on board PhiSat-1 is testing ways to reduce the bandwidth load required to send images and information to researchers on the ground.

One of the challenges scientists face is separating useless images - such as images of clouds - from valuable content.

Once this data is captured and saved and the journey from space to planet Earth is made, researchers are then forced to spend a long time reviewing and deleting the useless images.

Intel expects PhiSat-1 to lay the groundwork for advanced artificial intelligence satellites in the future.
