Their smart software, which is tested on NASA's EO-1 satellite, can be used on all kinds of spacecrafts. This software has three components: an image formation module, a science algorithm module, and a continuous planning module. This onboard planner reschedules what to film in conjunction with what the scientific algorithms have detected. This software has already detected floods in Australia and will be adapted to also detect volcano eruptions and changes in ice fields.
In a next stage, it will be used in space, for instance to watch Jupiter's moons. More details and references are available in this overview, including images of the flood detected by this smart software.
