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.

JACKSON (AMAZON CCN#1) Temp

Status date: 09 October 2019

This project is based on several ESA-backed projects, which resulted in the successful development of a set of telemedicine systems for civilian, military and commercial aviation applications. Since they were launched onto the market, the Tempus IC and Tempus Pro patient monitoring systems have been commercially successful in a range of pre-hospital care applications in Europe and North America. This new project targets the development a range of products to allow wider implementation of telemedicine and patient data sharing through easily to install technology and to access larger market segments through cardiac electro-therapy solutions.

DateGIS Demo

Status date: 12 February 2019

DateGIS Demo is the follow-on demonstration project from the ARTES 20 DateGIS feasibility study completed in 2016.DateGIS is an integrated Geo-information System (GIS) for Date Palm precision agriculture. Objective of DateGIS is to provide information products and services on date farms and palm trees for:Government institutions, specifically for the following needs:Date farm and palm registration service;Regional / national Red Palm Weevil control management program;Date sector (farmers), specifically for the following needs:Increase yield, productivity and quality of date farming;Reduction of date farm losses due to Red Palm Weevil infestation.Currently the main threat for the global date sector is the Red Palm Weevil plague, so the first focus of DateGIS is on service items 1.b and 2.b (the most urgent needs), with a clear and sustainable long-term growth model for service items 1.a and 2.a.The key asset of the DateGIS is information supply chain management (“from big data to farm information”) which includes building a strong network of remote sensing data suppliers, aerial survey service providers, knowledge partners and local network / sales channels.

PRIIMA

Status date: 08 February 2019

PRIIMA serves the need for high-resolution sea-ice forecasts in the Arctic and Antarctic maritime sector. It converts static satellite images into real-time information and even into animations showing the future drift of sea-ice over the next hours and days, while the resolution of the images is being conserved. 

NARWHALS

Status date: 05 February 2019

NARWHALS objective is to realise a feasibility study of a service capable to provide high accuracy positioning by monitoring and mitigating the ionospheric impact on GNSS navigation in the Arctic environment. Istituto Superiore Mario Boella (ISMB) and SpacEarth Technology (SET/INGV) propose a possible solution by combining their expertise in low power hardware and managing ionospheric data.

POINTSAT

Status date: 01 February 2019

POINTSAT enables professional remote collaboration services of support, instruction and training in challenging conditions for the maritime, offshore, and energy industry sectors. The project integrates satellite infrastructure and augmented reality technology into a smart and reliable solution for all technical collaboration needs.

ALBA-TROSS

Status date: 30 January 2019

Alba Orbital is working to develop satellite applications which utilize each aircraft’s unique ‘Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast’ (ADS-B) signature. ADS-B signals contain data on flight path, and flight weather conditions, and can be used to enhance global weather forecasts, verify aircraft carbon emissions, and aid in Mayday scenarios, especially when fused with other satellite and ground based data-sets. 

ARCtic Sea-ice and CleAN monitoring

Status date: 17 January 2019

The project brings solution for a systematic and automatic detection of sea ice (including the identification of ice and marginal ice zone) and oil slicks in the Arctic from Sentinel-1 images. Based on Machine Learning (Support Vector Machines), it permits to process automatically thousands of images with high accuracy.

NITREOS

Status date: 16 January 2019

NITREOS is a service platform that serves organic farmers, as well as conventional, in carrying out daily activities in a more efficient, profitable and sustainable way, as compared to the practices they used until now.NITREOS provides the following services to farmers and agricultural consultants: i) Irrigation Scheduling; ii) Variable Rate Fertilization; iii) Crop Growth Monitoring; and iv) Yield Estimation.

Satellite data analytics for (re)insurance

Status date: 16 January 2019

Geospatial data analytics for (re)insurance

Wild boar project

Status date: 14 January 2019

The key product/service is to provide a monitoring of damages to agricultural and environmental areas caused by wild boar (Sus scrofa) using remote sensing data. The technical key idea is to upscale from the investigation of local areas via high resolution aerial images to larger areas via satellite data.
