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.

SatCare

Status date: 13 December 2019

SatCare aims to demonstrate two systems of remote diagnostics using a broadband managed communication system to include satcom.  The SatCare activity will allow for video rich data to transmit scans to an hospital from a vehicle on the scene of the emergency and en-route to the hospital. Enabling a robust clinical decision support system for prehospital patients has an impact on the health outcomes for patients and can improve the productivity and efficiency of the ambulance service. Through the addition of satcom we can broaden the coverage of this service to include areas where terrestrial broadband communication (LTE) is unavailable or over-subscribed. 

AgeSpot

Status date: 13 December 2019

AGESPOT is a completely new technological development based on satellite earth observation data offering services that allow access to precise data on WHERE and HOW MANY people, under consideration of their ages and socio-economic attributes, currently live and will likely live in the FUTURE.

EFFORS

Status date: 13 December 2019

A real-time flood forecasting system has been developed and is operated at the computational centre of the Austrian national weather service ZAMG.EFFORS brings together experts in the field of meteorology, hydrology, hydrodynamics and satellite communication. Within a coherent modelling chain, the EFFORS system couples the individual numerical models and provides relevant data about flood evolution on short time scales.

ThermCERT

Status date: 12 December 2019

Fuel poverty is an increasingly large social problem in the Great Britain, as well as in the rest of Europe. Ageing, inefficient building stock and rising fuel prices are pushing more and more households into fuel poverty.ThermCERT reduces the complexity, cost and time spent identifying households who may qualify for Energy Company Obligation (ECO) support, allowing energy suppliers to deliver their obligation more efficiently.

BFPaaS

Status date: 11 December 2019

The terrain profiles play increasingly critical role in the risk assessment of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) operations planning and related risk assessment.The BFPaaS service is aimed to create an automated system providing terrain profile (derived from the Sentinel-1 radar imagery and other data sources) along the pre-defined route.

SIITAg

Status date: 11 December 2019

Agriculture is comparatively the most important core industry in the world. For feeding the 9 billion people expected to inhabit the Earth by 2050, our agricultural production must increase by 75%. This is a major global challenge while the arable land is limited, and climate change is making its cultivation unpredictable. Moreover, farming is a time-critical process everywhere on the globe and that triggers Spacenus GmbH, an Agricultural Information Technology (AgIT) company, to develop tools based on satellite data and artificial intelligence to make farming more efficient and easier.

ThermCERT Feasibility Study

Status date: 11 December 2019

The European Commission established a long-term objective of decreasing the CO2-emission levels for the building sector by 27% by 2030.Every third building in Europe is in need of deep renovation (older that sixty years). People in these houses are overpaying for the heating many times. That is both economically and environmentally harmful. Buildings account for 40% of the EU's energy consumption, 36% of its CO2 emissions. Current annual building renovation rate in Europe is below 2%.The actual thermal performance of building stock is the critical element for situation awareness, impacting progress on energy efficiency measure uptake. Utilising Earth observation, satellite navigation and ground level data, ThermCERT represents a crucial aid in helping to understand the true thermal performance of the city built environment, highlighting the energy efficiency problematic areas and issues. 

B-SURE

Status date: 05 December 2019

B-SURE reduces disaster management response time.The main B-SURE service is rapid collection and bandwidth-efficient secure communication of operationally relevant field information. The baseline field platform is a smartphone, while information managers access data and interact with the field users via Web browsers online on secure servers. The field users cover professionals, civ/mil population and small UAV operators. 

Village Data Analytics

Status date: 02 December 2019

Village Data Analytics (VIDA) is a software-enabled service that automatically identifies remote villages and determines their suitability for a micro-grid installation using earth observation data and machine learning algorithms.VIDA can be scaled across large user-defined areas to find a portfolio of viable micro-grid sites. This data-driven knowledge de-risks projects, reduces time and planning costs and enables investment at scale.

TT-GSAT

Status date: 29 November 2019

The aim of TT-GSAT is to offer a test and trial environment for emergency personnel and industry where it is possible to touch, try out and play with real building blocks in order to creatively find and implement new solutions. These building blocks can be individually combined with each other in order to try out and test the interaction of different equipment in different deployment scenarios.
