Employee Spotlight: Arnaud Quesney
For over 10 years, Arnaud Quesney has been a noteworthy leader in the Remote Sensing space. Although he is primarily known for his work as the Senior Remote Data Scientist at EarthDaily Agro, he is also known for many more contributions. He can be credited with contributing to daily monitoring from satellites to the EarthDaily Agro virtual constellation based on several satellites, to the quality improvement of imagery by using an accurate atmospheric correction and cloud/shadow masking, and to the development of several main analytics processed today in an operational framework at EarthDaily Agro.
Additionally, Arnaud applies his high-level scientific background and experience to value multi data sources, conceives innovative solutions using Artificial Intelligence, and designs analytics supporting the development of new analytics for EarthDaily Agro.
To add to his impressive track record, Quesney holds a Master of Applied Physics and a PhD in Remote Sensing from the University of Paris VII. He has been working on Earth Observation projects for 25 years with international space agencies such as NASA, ESA, and CNES.
“I enjoy working at EarthDaily Agro within a multi-disciplinary team. Each day, new challenges linked to customer requests arise, and we find solutions together with a lot of ideation, creativity, and pragmatism. At the end of the day, this company deals with projects using remote sensing observations with real applications for real people. That makes the difference. The coming EarthDaily constellation will open a new page in the Earth monitoring history. We will be able to catch slight changes in the fields and be more reactive, thanks to the daily revisit, the 5 meters, and the scientific grade quality of processed information. From the daily images, we will be able to make movies of the whole Earth at 5 meters and we will learn a lot from that,” said Quesney.
