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.

Services enabled by HAPS (Thales Alenia Space)

Status date: 14 November 2019

The need for effective surveillance covering large surface areas around the world is expected to boost the market for HAPS.The study objectives are:to define services where HAPS can play a key role in the short-term, mainly for maritime and border surveillance, support to ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Recognition) activities and emergency response applications,to technically and economically assess and characterise the previous applications and services complemented by satellites.

NG-RMP

Status date: 14 November 2019

The Next Generation Recognised Maritime Picture (NG-RMP) provides a real time marine solution for the monitoring of vessels, complemented with advanced decision support. The system provides for risk determination from the viewpoint of either navies and the security of countries EEZ or insurance organisation to determine risk exposure of their marine vessel portfolio in real time worldwide.

IoT4Verticality

Status date: 08 November 2019

IoT4verticality is a decision support solution to improve the current inspection procedures and enable condition-based maintenance of critical infrastructures; it monitors the verticality of structures, which is particularly important in tall structures such as flanged poles and guyed poles/towers.

Careview

Status date: 08 November 2019

Careview is a web-app that uses GNSS positioning to improve the accuracy of outreach and door-knocking to identify socially isolated residents in a city, helping councils save money. This improves the statistical chances of finding socially isolated residents. Careview was the only non-clinical solution to win an NHS Innovation Award in 2017.

3TIMS

Status date: 08 November 2019

The project “3TIMS” focuses on the on-board monitoring of the completeness of freight trains, because the lack of electrical power supply at its wagons prevented a safe solution so far. 3TIMS involves rail stakeholders and investigates fusion of three technologies (GNSS with IMU, Brake Pipe monitoring, M2M radio links), to establish the design and consolidating it by a proof-of-concept analysis.

ADS-B Xplore

Status date: 08 November 2019

ADS-B Xplore elaborates innovative service ideas targeting:Big data applications based on air traffic surveillance dataA global communication solution accessible for every aircraft to support safety and flight route optimizationSafe coexistence of manned and unmanned air traffic

SOLAR3

Status date: 08 November 2019

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 realisation of large-scale diagnostics of vegetation for precision farming. 

Smeeth

Status date: 08 November 2019

SMEETH designed to supports health researchers handling a large database on atmospheric composition, meteorological data, and correlated geo-referenced medical records, in a web-based Geographic Information System (GIS) environment. The final goal of SMEETH is to determine the plausibility of providing early warning of outbreaks of respiratory diseases using satellite measurements.

ASTROCAST

Status date: 08 November 2019

Astrocast is developing an advanced Nanosatellite network for the Internet of things (IoT). 

AMTRACK2

Status date: 07 November 2019

The AMTRACK service aims at filling the gaps between terrestrial AIS service and SAT-AIS (Satellite AIS) service. Both services provide ship positions but the first is limited because of the limited VHF range of coastal stations, typically 25-30 nautical miles, while the second is limited in areas of high ship densities (Asia, Golf of Mexico, Europe…).
