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.

SIMONA

Status date: 17 November 2017

The aim of SIMONA project is to provide an information platform that based on the integration of satellite and terrestrial data can both complement and enhance existing Maritime situation awareness services operated by Italian Coast Guard and Navy over a wide area of the Mediterranean Sea and at the same time provide space-based services bringing functional advantages to private stakeholders like Merchant ships Insurance Companies and leisure boat users.The technological key is represented by the integration of services from Earth Observation sensors (mainly Cosmo SkyMed Copernicus Landsat and WorldView) Satellite Communications (Orbcom or Iridium) Satellite Navigation (GPS EGNOS Galileo in the future) along with information andor operational services coming from other Institutional (AIS Cadastral Data) andor Private assets (Merchant Ship databases Port Info databases).

High Precision Navigation System for Trucks

Status date: 17 November 2017

Autonomous driving and reverse parking of truck-trailer combinations are very attractive for the transportation and logistics industry to reduce the transportation costs and to avoid accidents. 

SENSE

Status date: 16 November 2017

The preservation of safety and information distribution in the maritime transport market is currently enabled by systems, which already show signs of overload, such as AIS. SENSE is a feasibility study to analyse and assess the use of space assets for maritime navigation systems. The project aims at developing a viable system services concept closing the information gap between ship and shore.

RECIPE

Status date: 14 November 2017

RECIPE provides low cost 3D models of cultural assets through a COTS tool. Input data shall be EO satellite images and photos taken by tourists,  via mobile phone cameras.

DART

Status date: 09 November 2017

The DART service aims to offer affordable medium distance transportation capabilities to Polish professionals as primary target market. DART will be based on the use of light aircraft located all over the country, by exploiting GNSS-based approach procedures and remote AFIS services. It ambitions to be much cheaper and flexible than current air-taxi like services.

Tourism Impact Monitoring Service

Status date: 08 November 2017

Realise and monitor sustainable tourist destinations using Earth observation satellites.

aircheckr

Status date: 25 October 2017

aircheckr provides detailed outside air quality information and tools needed to effectively reduce your exposure to air pollution. It empowers people to actively or passively make better decisions and take actions in order to breathe better air. People are no longer defenceless. Improving the air at home/office or car, or reducing your exposure during biking or exercising is now possible. Together with its partners, aircheckr is working hard to integrate air quality information into a wide range of services, applications or devices.

POINTSAT

Status date: 19 October 2017

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.

SOLAR3

Status date: 19 October 2017

SOLAR3 leverages core space assets including navigation, earth observation and satellite communication, as well as the recent advances in solar-powered unmanned flight and hyperspectral imaging technologies towards the realization of large-scale diagnostics of vegetation for precision farming. The project delivers high-precision diagnostics of widely experienced biotic and abiotic crop stresses to facilitate farmers’ decisions in applying appropriate treatments.  

MARVELOWS

Status date: 18 October 2017

The project objective is to identify and specify new services using VDES (VHF Data Exchange System), so leveraging robust ship-to-ship, ship-to-shore and shore-to-ship communications that this technology makes available. Starting from e-navigation Maritime Service Portfolio (MSP) as defined by IMO e-navigation strategic implementation plan, two services have been identified that mostly match the Contractor business opportunities: dematerialisation and towage.
