ABSTRACT
<p>Onboard, intelligent event detection and product generation represents a significant application area for AI in space&#x2014;timely delivery of remotely sensed data products to enable management of natural hazards and ecosystem concerns. High-payoff applications include volcano monitoring, wildfire detection and rehabilitation tracking, vegetation and ecosystem tracking, flood monitoring, snow and ice tracking, oceanographic applications, and dust storm detection and monitoring. An operational concept under consideration for the HyspIRI Earth Observing mission being considered for launch later this decade uses AI techniques both for onboard processing and mission planning on the ground.</p>
