Based on user needs and industry skills, the evolution of customized solutions and the establishment of innovative services is accomplished through project activities. Focusing on various thematic areas, relevant information on the project activities is provided below.

FAMOS

Status date: 08 August 2017

The objective of the FAMOS project is to improve the claim management, loss adjustment and sales capabilities for forest and agriculture damage insurances. The service also covers the needs of additional stakeholders from the forest domain. Combining earth observation, IT technology and GNSS, the service supports target users by improving the efficiency of existing business processes. 

GridWatch

Status date: 08 August 2017

The present project is intended to equip owners of High Voltage power infrastructures with: a) a continuous monitoring and alarming system to support the inspection and maintenance procedures, and b) a management system providing crucial information to support the dispatching of electrical energy (cfr. Dynamic Line Rating).

SISMA

Status date: 07 August 2017

The scope of SISMA is to investigate the potential for new markets in the field of animal monitoring, the feasibility of establishing new services for Health and Diseases, Livestock management, and Ecosystem services including animal conservation.2 business cases are analysed:In Russia, for domestic and wild reindeers and their interaction between husbandries,In France, for the study of birds migration potentially carrier of Avian Influenza. 

PLIMM

Status date: 07 August 2017

The PLIMM service provides ground motion mapping across the Greater London area by combining multiple datasets such as GNSS and InSAR using ‘big data’ pattern analysis. The output is presented through a custom API enabling a better understanding of infrastructural assets, increasing the efficiency of the service and implementing a condition-based maintenance which reduces costs to the asset owner. 

Nostalgeo

Status date: 04 August 2017

Nostalgeo is a location-based platform to preserve & experience the streetview of the past. The interactive tool allows users to explore, compare, upload & fit old streetviews in relation to the streetview of today. A location-based API service allows other users/developers to access historical streetview data over whole Europe and integrate it into their own (touristic) applications.

Uam®

Status date: 27 July 2017

e2E intends to offer more affordable data communication services into niche markets currently underserved from existing infrastructure or where traditional satellite delivery is too expensive. The core of the service concept builds on two key technologies that have been developed with small airborne IDP networks in mind that incudes RPAS, HAPS and small satellites.

MULDIARCOS

Status date: 21 July 2017

The MULDIARCOS project will implement and demonstrate a cohesive end-to-end delivery chain of satellite and metocean data. The focus is on maritime operations in harsh Arctic regions. Such operations often have a need of fast and regular Earth Observation and weather information. Streamlined and effective ordering, delivery procedures and user-interfaces are a necessity in the operations due to limited and expensive communication channels to the vessels.

High Precision Navigation System for Trucks

Status date: 21 July 2017

The project analyses the feasibility of an assistance service for drivers of truck-trailer combinations while reverse parking. This is a challenging maneuver because of the complex dynamics and difficult tilt determination between truck and trailer. The service provides GNSS-based information about position, headings and tilt angle of trucks and trailers, steering wheel guidance and predicted trajectory visualization in images from satellites and a rear-mounted camera.

EFFORS

Status date: 20 July 2017

The aim of the present demonstration project is to develop an Enhanced Flood Forecasting System for Critical Infrastructure Protection in medium size Alpine catchments. The service is designed to address infrastructure located either on the river itself (e.g. bridge) or in the floodplain (e.g. a building).

KORE

Status date: 13 July 2017

KORE helps farmers and agronomists manage their crops and exploit new precision agriculture techniques to increase crop yields. To achieve this, KORE augments an already successful agronomy service, EssentialsMap. Remote sensing and satellite navigation techniques are used to easily survey fields. This provides farmers and agronomists with cost effective information on crop growth and crop health.
