For decades, satellites have been collecting data about our planet. Yet complex global systems like agriculture, deforestation, water cycles, and many others, affect billions but are still poorly understood. Not only are these systems critical to understand for the good of humanity, they’re also important for businesses as they adapt to — and attempt to thrive in — an ever-changing environment.
With the price of satellites dropping from over a billion dollars to tens of thousands, new constellations with new sensor characteristics are coming online, producing ever more data. Combining multiple sources provides a far richer view than that of any single constellation. For organizations that want to harness this power and enable computation at global scale, it’s necessary to have a data refinery that combines data from multiple sources, cleans it up and makes it ready for science. That’s exactly what we’ve built at Descartes Labs.

In 2009, FieldAware was founded with the future of the field service industry in mind. Our founders began in the mobile space with telematics, the solution that allows a business to track a truck on maps and report statistical data. They soon recognized that providing vehicle tracking only addressed a small segment of the needs for customers. There were great inefficiencies due to the paper and white board systems that were in place as the primary method for dispatch, scheduling, work orders and invoicing. The answer was to create an all-in-one platform that included scheduling and reporting through automated, bidirectional, live communication between the field and the back office. We determined that such a system could increase the revenue for our customers by providing cues for up-sell and cross-sell opportunities, optimizing operations and service calls, improving productivity, and ultimately improving both customer and employee satisfaction. This is what we delivered.
