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.

SAQM

Status date: 30 October 2018

The project aims to test the feasibility of providing accurate and high resolution global air quality modelling services using vehicles extracted from very high-resolution earth observation imagery.  Providing detailed air quality modelling for a large number of cities will improve decision making, enable efficient and cost effective urban growth and reduce the air pollution impact on human health.

TELEKAIROS®

Status date: 29 October 2018

TELEKAIROS® Fintech is a tool for financial and (re)insurance contracts that derive value from an underlying asset such a traditional stock, a bond or stock index. TELEKAIROS is capable to manage different kinds of risks, for example by increasing the efficiency of the underlying market because they lower unforeseen costs of purchasing an asset outright.

Earthcube

Status date: 29 October 2018

Every year, millions of financial contracts whose value is indexed on hard commodities prices are traded on financial markets. Australia and Brazil represent 54% of the global supply, while China and India combined represent more than half of the global demand in hard commodities. It is thus key for investors to be able to forecast outputs and inputs in these countries where opacity remains high. Earthcube leverages satellites to tackle this issue.

TALED

Status date: 24 October 2018

TALED is an innovative integrated SATCOM/EO/GNSS platform to cope in RT/NRT with all kind of Fire incidents in outdoors: Forest fires, Waste fires and Hazmat Fires. The system will guarantee better technical and economical performances of the service. TALED has been integrated in the DSS of Campania Region, operated by SMA, the official service provider and TALED’s team partner.

TTSat

Status date: 24 October 2018

The successive and recurring epidemiological crisis in developing countries have evidenced the need for more efficient organisation in terms of diseases early detection and warning as well as global emergency response capacity.There is a clear opportunity to provide an integrated information system delivering real time data collection and alert from/to all sites in a territory where no telecommunication infrastructure is available in remote sites.Built upon the epiSat business solution by Telemedicine Technologies S.A.S. and leveraging satellite terminals by CLS (Collecte Localisation Satellites), the TTSat service will be deployed in collaboration with UNFPA (United Nations Population Fund) in three countries, Benin, Guinea and Senegal.

CountFloors

Status date: 22 October 2018

CountFloors (CF) is a service designed to collect and analyse GNSS-geocoded images of buildings acquired at street level together with Sentinel data. CF automatically retrieves ground-level and satellite images on urban areas of interest, and uses a machine learning approach to extract risk-relevant characteristics of buildings depicted in the images. These features are sought after by risk modellers and insurance companies; yet they are of interest also in the real estate market and to the municipalities for their planning.

IoTrees

Status date: 18 October 2018

Forests cover 30% of the Earths land area and provide a vital role by converting atmospheric carbon into oxygen as part of the growth process. Forests are essentially the ‘Lungs of the Earth’. Determining the rate of forest growth is an essential indicator of the health of a forest and also a key indicator to estimate future growth performance. Climate Change is a major concern to humanity and many countries around the globe have established national forest inventories to determine forest growth and health. Treemetrics through the Internet of Trees (IoTrees) project has developed a vision and plan to revolutionise the way trees and forests are measured and monitored by utilising latest Satcom and IoT technologies.

SYMPA

Status date: 18 October 2018

Sympa: “All-around solution for the sustainable monitoring and control of Marine protected Areas”.Vitrociset Belgium, le Centre Spatial de Liège, and LaMMA joined in Consortium, developed a system for the supervision of the touristic and commercial traffic for the benefit of the Marine Protected Area and maritime authorities, by mean of providing added value location based services to tourists and integrating this information with AIS data.Sympa service offering is completed by the “Vessel Detection” facility that exploits the Sentinel images for target detection; and the “Water quality” monitoring which integrates earth observation into innovative biogeochemical and hydrodynamic models as support the for a sustainable and competitive tourism.

Curio Canopy

Status date: 11 October 2018

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.

HiVaCroM

Status date: 11 October 2018

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 use to manage crop-related risk during the growing season.
