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.

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.

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.

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).

KABALIST

Status date: 13 July 2017

The project is focused on the set up of reliable and cost effective distribution of  live video feed of non-mainstream sport events into the Internet. The context and the proposed pilot service is tailored to the Serie C Italian football league. The novelty introduced with this pilot project is the adoption of uplink in Ka-band using inexpensive and semi-permanent installations to the stadiums, supported by a set of features to ensure compliance with the targets in terms of availability, quality, accessibility and costs.  

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.

NG-RMP

Status date: 13 July 2017

The Next Generation Recognised Maritime Picture (NG-RMP) project aims to provide a system to the Irish Naval Services (INS) which generates an advanced Recognised Maritime Picture (RMP) using emerging Satellite Automatic Identification System (S-AIS) technology. In addition novel inputs such as CCTV and external database sources will be integrated. Data mining and advanced visualisation techniques will be applied to the gathered information for presentation to personnel within the INS HQ.

SatCare

Status date: 13 July 2017

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. 

Curio Canopy

Status date: 13 July 2017

Combining analysis of satellite imagery with crowdsourced data, this urban tree montioring platform connects communities and urban forestry professionals. It provides an open data service that drives improved understanding of urban trees and access to better information in order to: i) increase tree planting and tree care; ii) improve environmental conservation management and planning; iii) support educational and communication resources for learning and knowledge-sharing.

WONDER

Status date: 30 June 2017

The project aims at developing an automated, cloud-based digital service for environmental monitoring which could be utilized globally. The solution builds on earth observation, global positioning, crowd sourcing, internet of things (IoT) and predictive analysis.

TIKKA Service

Status date: 29 June 2017

The TIKKA's service is dedicated to support forest users during their operational task inherent to the development of timber logging plans. The service benefits from the integration of LIDAR, SAR and GNSS technologies. The project output (the maps, analysis and reports)  will be published and available for all the authorized person via the web geoportal.
