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.

AMTRACK : Advanced Maritime Tracking

Status date: 07 January 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…).

MOWGLI

Status date: 03 January 2019

MOWGLI is a solution that provides a set of services for optimal microgrid planning, designing and operational and maintenance (O&M) applications in urban and rural areas of developing countries, with particular focus on India user case. The activities are described in the A08891 tender, supported by India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA) and European Space Agency (ESA).

Space4Microgrids – India

Status date: 03 January 2019

Space4Microgrids – India The Space4Microgrids – India project focuses on supporting the implementation and operations of microgrids in India. The overall aim is to determine the feasibility of viable and sustainable operational satellite based services that can subsequently be developed and demonstrated. These services will aim at resolving various challenges related to deployment of sustainable microgrids for remote, isolated and emerging areas in India. Our services will assist in planning, design, operational and maintenance stages.  

Services Enabled by HAPS (Unisphere)

Status date: 26 December 2018

Within the context of satellites, terrestrial infrastructure and Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS), HAPS are a new platform offering unique advantages, but also complement existing services. A roadmap to European driven HAPS program and economically sustainable business cases is covered in this project.

Services enabled by HAPS (Thales Alenia Space)

Status date: 26 December 2018

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.

WONDER

Status date: 21 December 2018

The targeted solution is an automated, cloud-based digital service for water quality monitoring which could be utilized globally. The solution builds on earth observation, global positioning, crowd sourcing, internet of things (IoT) and predictive analysis. 

AIR-Portal

Status date: 20 December 2018

AIR-Portal aims to provide extremely local (100m resolution) accurate air quality monitoring and forecasting, delivering actionable insight for citizens, governments and industry.The delivered historical, real-time and expected air quality data is based on a unique down scaling algorithm which integrates satellite data, local sensing, land use data, meteorological models, and dispersion modeAIR-Portal aims to provide extremely local (100m resolution) accurate air quality monitoringAIR-Portal aims to provide extremely local (100m resolution) accurate air quality monitoring and forecasting, delivering actionable insight for citizens, governments and industry.The delivered historical, real-time and expected air quality data is based on a unique down scaling algorithm which integrates satellite data, local sensing, land use data, meteorological models, and dispersion models. and forecasting, delivering actionable insight for citizens, governments and industry.The delivered historical, real-time and expected air quality data is based on a unique down scaling algorithm which integrates satellite data, local sensing, land use data, meteorological models, and dispersion models.ls.

Watch Out!

Status date: 19 December 2018

While wearable tracker gadgets become mainstream, they fail to provide a solution for elderly fall prevention. This new algorithm from Gait Up empowers existing wearables with smart fusion of GNSS and IMU for simple and accurate activity metrics related to elderly falls, like gait speed. The algorithm is implemented in a smartwatch application, satisfying requests from national healthcare institutions.

SBS RailS Phase 2.1

Status date: 19 December 2018

SBS RailS Phase 2.1 aims to design, build and test the first European Demonstrator of Train Control System based on the ERTMS L2 standard operating with satellite navigation and a satcom multi-bearer telecom service. The demonstrator will be tested on the Pinerolo-Sangone pilot line in collaboration with RFI that in the meantime has activated the certification process with the safety agencies.

ESA-IoT

Status date: 19 December 2018

The study intends to understand the future of a satellite-based IoT solution and the market for related products in multiple industries that require monitoring and in particular the monitoring of assets in remote areas. Through the study we engaged with major industrial companies providing them with a small demo of the proposed IoT product to validate business opportunities.
