Five finalist start-ups will have the chance to pitch their pioneering project in front of Airbus Executives and selected stakeholders. The challenge winner will receive a voucher worth €50,000 for satellite data as well as coaching for the development of their start-up, the second winner will be rewarded with satellite data vouchers worth €20,000, the third €15,000, the fourth €10,000 and the fifth will get €5,000. Participating in this challenge will also include the opportunity of being integrated to the Airbus BizLab, the global aerospace business accelerator.

The following Airbus imagery, data and services will be provided to participants:

  • Very large imagery datasets available online or for download: City of Sao Paulo, City of Toulouse, State of California
  • Machine Learning datasets: planes and ships signatures and imagery
