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.

JERICHO VDE

Status date: 17 October 2017

Feasibility study, performed by a Polish team, providing a comprehensive overview of the VDES technology future maritime applications potential. Analysis regards two of the most interesting services, i.e. MSI (Maritime Safety Information) exchange, with particular emphasis on polar regions, and SAR (Search and Rescue) operation coordination – on-scene search patterns exchange.

DOCS

Status date: 16 October 2017

A novel sub-orbital constellation concept to provide high spatial & temporal resolution EO data using commercial aircraft: a most ecological constellation re-using the most reliable platform

SBS-RailS

Status date: 16 October 2017

Space Based Services for Railway Signalling feasibility study shall assess technical feasibility and economic viability of an integrated satellite navigation and satellite communication solution complementing Level 2 European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS).Satellite navigation systems can be integrated with the on-board and wayside signalling systems to guarantee the required level of safety (SIL4) that is today provided by the existing train detection systems, while satellite communication systems can complement or even replace terrestrial communications.

CapeOutdoors3D

Status date: 10 October 2017

CapeOutdoors3D conceptualises a mobile application for tourists planning outdoor activities in Nature Reserves and National Parks in South Africa. The project links the space technologies Earth Observation and Satellite Navigation with the aim to provide a 3D virtual reality planning tool for tourists. In addition, Earth Observation products are designed to support protected area authorities in their fire management activities.

ConnieAI

Status date: 10 October 2017

ConnieAI is an AI based platform to guide tourists in cities and touristic venues. Through a common smartphone app and a web-based backend, the solution allows to easily create digital guides and provide visitors with touristic content and services.

WAMMO (AMMO CCN#1)

Status date: 06 October 2017

The WAMMO project, a continuation of Ascend XYZ’s AMMO project, aims to expand the service with ground radar data. Airports will be able to visualize bird activity and identify the associated areas of interest. Radar data and correlated EO data from multiple airports will be used to produce statistical models for airports not equipped with a radar and with similar habitats.

International Satellite Derived Shallow Water Bathymetry Service

Status date: 04 October 2017

A web-based service to provide immediate, off-the-shelf, online access to shallow water depth data derived from very high resolution satellite imagery.

SPOTTITT

Status date: 20 September 2017

Spottitt is the new brand name for the SEWISS service delivered by the project consortium. Spottitt has been conceived to support onshore wind developers, turbine manufacturers and energy providers with the complex, expensive and time consuming process of screening and selecting the most suitable greenfield sites for development, without the need for initial travel to sites of interest.

SatApps

Status date: 19 September 2017

Internet of Things/IoT – M2M – industry 4.0 – these headlines are representing large user groups which have an urgent need of a globally available, low-cost, secure data service, dedicated to very small data volumes per sensor and for use also in remote areas. The objective of the study is to perform an in depth  requirements analysis on 2 focus pilot user groups:  railway transportation and container/waste management.

ASSIST WRM

Status date: 18 September 2017

According to the outcomes of the forerunner feasibility study, there is a potential market landscape for high-end services supporting the winter road maintenance. Intercepting then the real needs of users and stakeholders involved in winter maintenance, the follow-up ASSIST demonstration project intends to address these opportunities by providing a set of advanced space-based services, specifically deploying a multi-sites pilot-demonstration over four different European countries during the 2016-2017 winter season.
