Cudos & Sfera Technologies Collaborating for Cloud-Based Computing for the Ground-Based Space Industry

By Crypto Guys | Navid Ladani | 20 Jan 2022

Cudos, a decentralized computing network has paired up with Sfera Technologies in a strategic collaboration to cater for the emerging hyper-scale computing demands of the ground-based space industry and to support Sfera’s newly decentralized data infrastructure Ephemeris. The alliance will simplify complexities and significantly lower costs in the space industry.

The Ephemeris consists of a multichain protocol powered by Sfera Technologies. The purpose of this decentralized data infrastructure is to assist in delivering integrated satellite data delivery and process management systems through the blockchain and eliminate the need for manual data processing. The partnership is said to eliminate the loopholes in Earth Observation (EO) satellite data and the computing demands for storing, processing, and delivering it. This collaboration will pave the way for many revolutionary projects in the upcoming years.

What This Collaboration Is About?

Both the platforms want to deliver innovation and uniqueness to computing and data delivery systems. Sfera Technologies is aiming to settle the foundation of its ground station network on top of Ephemeris to smoothly operate it and to provide smart contracts and oracles to its clients.

The system will not only replace the existing paperwork which is often linked with struggle but will also assist its users in providing timely ground segment services. This data infrastructure is targeting three main areas to facilitate its users with:

  • Enabling Ground Station Network access
  • Accessing an array of storage, computation, and dissemination services
  • Creating the first-ever decentralized satellite data ecosystem

The number of consumers of EO data across multiple economic sectors is increasing rapidly and there is a lack of proper and potent infrastructure for storing, processing, and delivering this data. CUDOS, on the other hand, plays a crucial role by providing enough computing power to Ephemeris to utilize raw Earth Observation (EO) data from multiple satellites into commercial imagery products. Reorganizing all the rigid legacy services like the satellite ground segment with a direct attachment into Web3 territory.

Cudos Mainnet

The power of cloud computing offered by Cudos is stress tested and ensures that it is up to the task. The testnet has been undergoing stress tests for some time now, with more than 20,000 developers working on it.

The successful testnet has been noticed by major players across the world, resulting in a slew of different partnerships with Cudos. Collaborations include Tingo Holdings, GameFi platform Cornucopias, and now Sfera Technologies.

The mainnet is all set to launch in the next month (February 2022), which will pave the way for extreme scalability and low latency for all users. This is especially good for the ground-based space company as it means it can avoid the use of centralized and siloed computing power and data storage that is expensive, costs a lot to maintain, and eats into the budgetary requirements.

The use of cloud computing negates these and with Cudos’ mainnet, Sfera Technologies will become a leading EO data processor.
