VIDEO: Emeline Paat-Dahlstrom on the Virtual Incubation Programme, Airbus Data and Other FAQ's

Emeline Paat-Dahlstrom from Spacebase talks about the virtual incubation programme, the kind of data participants will have access to and covers other frequently asked questions.

What benefits do the participants accepted into the Challenge incubator program get?

Support from Challenge partners including but not limited to:

  • Airbus Sandbox platform and access to data

  • Mentorship through space and agritech specialists

  • Advice for conducting UA flight tests within recommended areas

  • Airways guidance and process for testing UA solutions

  • Use of SpaceBase collaborative online platform.

What data is available for testing our solutions?

Public and commercial sample data is now available on the resources section of the Challenge website or click here. You can also go on Airbus One Atlas toolkit and request for sample data directly.

For those selected to participate in the Challenge virtual incubator program, Airbus’s new platform Verde will be available to incubator teams.

Can we use any available satellite or UA data?

Yes. There is data already downloadable from the Challenge Resources page.

Or you can use any satellite or drones data that you have access to.

Do we need to use both satellite or UA technology?

Integrating both technologies would be one good way to address the problem but you can also use just satellite or UA data.  

Can applicants submit a full application without participating in the Challenge incubation program?

Absolutely! Applicants or teams can submit a full application up to 15 September, when full applications close.
