Lockheed Martin's First Smart Satellites are Tiny with Big Missions - Mar 20, 2019
LM50 SmartSat is a new 6U cubesat based modular bus chassis for smallsats, with software defined features. Or a fancy way of saying the onboard computer is now powerful enough to do full SDR and run a hypervisor for VM's and containers, courtesy of SHREC.

Japanese government sponsored remote sensing data repository/platform, sorta open to the public. Geospatial data from three or so sats. Accessible via a Jupyter python notebook now. Suitable for deep/machine learning input. Not really OpenData though, and the notebook is pretty locked down, plus you need a login... Probably the data is locked down due to Pasco...

Uh, the only way you can do this is with a hardcore constellation of VLEO sats with stupid large antennas, something similar to the proposed sat design by Tethers Unlimited which builds it's antenna in space.
