Space Detectives - Using satellite images as evidence

Air and Space Evidence - the World’s First Space Detective Agency - was founded in late 2014 to provide an investigatory service to clients by using Earth observation imagery from satellites, drones and aircraft as evidence. The Company’s origins lie in academic research undertaken at University College London, and we have an unrivalled blend of academic and military intelligence expertise in the legal, security and technical fields of Earth observation. We have received case enquiries from individuals, companies and governments in over thirty countries to date.

The company designs satellite monitoring programmes, and our key specialism is monitoring environmental crime. We are currently helping governments tackle the €90 billion problem of waste crime by launching a new satellite detection service called 'Waste from Space' As part of this service we have created a semi-automated model which can identify unlawful waste landfill sites. This service will enable successful early regulatory interventions (whilst problems are manageable), allowing Governments to catch criminals in the act and to drastically reduce costs and environmental hazards.

Fast Company listed us as one of their top 15 "World Changing Ideas" of 2015.
