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.

SSFIS

Status date: 02 April 2019

Smallholders are underserved by credit providers as lenders are unable to assess their risk. Sensonomic’s system uses predictive and prescriptive simulations to assess system effects of credit deployment and open the market. With its dynamic data consumption, and iterative and reactive simulations, the service provides a continually updated prediction of how robust the credit providers portfolio is.

EUROPORT Demo Project

Status date: 01 April 2019

Ports are fundamental and main part of inter-modal global transport in the world. The growth in freight transport stresses the existing infrastructure to its limits. There are already considerable signs of congestion in the European transport system, e.g. on the roads and in harbors. Congestion will have a negative impact on the costs and time of transportation, which affects the prices and the quality of products.EUROPORT aims to optimize the synchronization between the several transportation modes reducing the downtime in the logistic chain.

SiriusInsight

Status date: 29 March 2019

Sirius Constellation Ltd is developing ‘SiriusInsight’, a Situational Awareness platform using pioneering techniques in Artificial Intelligence including ‘Explainable Artificial Intelligence’. The fully developed system will have applications in many commercial and governmental areas.

NG Aviation – Smart Airports

Status date: 28 March 2019

Proposed system serves as a platform for Airside area management based on ICAO and EUROCONTROL legislative as a support for satellite navigation.AIME Aeronautical Information Management Environment software platform enables to create and share digital aeronautical data including the temporal warning messages (Digital NOTAM) in AIXM 5.1 format.

Meandair

Status date: 25 March 2019

Every day, pilots have to take difficult decisions about their flight routes avoiding adverse weather and safeguarding fuel-efficiency of their flights. Meandair helps to quickly determine the safest and most fuel-efficient routes for general aviation flights with respect to the ever-changing weather.

European Space-based Information Management System for CBRN (EuroSIM CBRN)

Status date: 22 March 2019

The aim of this project is to investigate the feasibility of developing the next generation of CBRN information management system through the provision of a web-based service model which enables a wide user community to have access to the type of advanced CBRN IM technology already available to the military in the UK, the USA and NATO.

CERASAT

Status date: 20 March 2019

CERASAT aims to provide reliable, real-time and global rainfall measurement services. It extracts the rainfall information from the signalling data generated in satellite communication (SatCom) networks by employing advanced machine learning and signal processing techniques. CERASAT can complement existing rainfall measurement solutions e.g. rain gauges and weather radars.

OWASIS-NL

Status date: 20 March 2019

The lack of proper information on water availability is one of the most challenging obstacles for water management practices. To fight this challenge, OWASIS-NL uses space assets in two innovative water availability services that support effective water resource management in the Netherlands and South Africa.

HiVaCroM

Status date: 18 March 2019

HiVaCroM uses a time series of Sentinel-1 SAR observations as the basis for generating field-level canopy cover measurements for high value potato crops on a national scale. The canopy cover measurements are required frequently, throughout the growing season, as input to yield models and to inform crop performance metrics. The yield model and crop performance metrics provided important information that growers and supply chain can use to manage crop-related risk during the growing season.

CSP-FoSyS DP

Status date: 14 March 2019

Concentrating solar thermal power plants with an electricity production of up to 250 MW have to be integrated into the electricity grid. Both day-ahead and intra-day forecasting of the production and therefore direct solar irradiance forecasting is needed.The demonstration project investigates a production forecasting system using numerical weather prediction and satellite-based nowcasting. The project includes the setup of a demonstration solar production forecast system for the La Africana power plant in Spain.
