LSBC sights a Smart Luxembourg: Dear Moon is a boon to Humanity!
Our radar is tuned to economic, scientific, security, and social prosperity. Consequently, the Space Academics, Space Agencies, and Space Companies are an assortment of actors with technical inclinations for Space and Technology. In fact, assorted actors are proposing Lunar Gateway Missions, and Lunar Surface Exploration Missions with a sight of a ‘Smart Moon Colony’. At the Luxembourg Slovenian Business Club (LSBC), the Author brightly believes that humanity can manage our ubiquitous urban and remote rural areas more efficiently. Living in Luxembourg, the Author realizes the opportunities in a Smart Luxembourg. So, the LSBC invites influencers with innovative ideas to embark on one of the fastest-growing sectors in Luxembourg, the healthy heart of Europe.
As shown in Fig. 1., a ‘Smart Moon Colony’ with sustainable lunar activities could exist if humanity realizes the concept of a connected city. The Luxembourg Space Agency (LSA) avidly announced its four (4) values as Expertise, Funding, Innovation, and Skills. Consequently, these values remarkably reflect on using highly advanced, innovative, and pioneering technology for implementing an invigorating infrastructure of a connected city – Smart Luxembourg. A connected city, that is to say – a smart city, hones interactive infrastructure to optimistically offer a wide range of high-quality services (Stimmel, C. L., 2016). As a matter of fact, a successful smart city infrastructure involves incredible interactions between several systems marvelously managed by different opportunistic organizations within a Smart Luxembourg. Thus, the Author aims to focus on ‘International Cooperation (Sustainable Moon, 2019)’ while introducing the concept of a ‘Sustainable Earth’.
SAR Polarimetry – Vast Cast of Future
In our last research work ‘LSBC envisions Valued Vessels: Experience a Trip by a Ship!’, we concluded that humanity should consider waste as a resource for the life cycle because humanity is responsible for protecting our mother planet Earth. In fact, waste as a resource contributes to honing a smart environment. Also, a robust requirement for an exceptionally efficient city is to optimize the resources of each synchronous system (Dasari et al., 2016). Indeed, the Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data can be utilized to exploit the available resources for introducing infrastructure and planning a Smart Luxembourg (Alberga, V. et al., 2008). Thus, a vast cast of future is realized with Earth Observation data.
Concept and Application
Globally, dynamic designers in connected countries use Earth Observation (EO) data for scientific research and development of space applications and technology. In fact, the EO data is remarkably required as a supportive source of information for determining the unique state of the terrain. Indeed, the dynamic designers, distinctive developers and engaging entrepreneurs within the space community face the continuous challenge of evaluating the prodigious potential for adding dashing dimensions of efficiency (Lee, J. S., and Pottier, E., 2009). Earlier human settlements have acquired intellectual intelligence to engage civil society by observing life. Also, the importance of eco-friendly livelihood is understood with rising awareness for the protection of the environment with effective use of rich resources. Consequently, the Author fundamentally focuses on ‘Sustainability for Society’ to drive socio-economic growth of humanity. Hence, the LSBC steadily stands to coordinate interdisciplinary business aspects and collaborate to help entrepreneurs explore their ideas.
Humanity solemnly sights an engaging envelope of ambient atmosphere surrounding our mother planet Earth. Consequently, the habit to inhabit precious planet Earth helps humanity to explore. Humanity follows the roadmap to explore our natural neighbor Moon, planet Mars, and beyond in outer space. As a result, we are responsible to use the Earth Observation data to address societal challenges and augment global environmental sustainability.
