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.

SASISA FS

Status date: 13 June 2013

SASISA assesses and validates a new service that enables emergency and disaster relief organisations to exploit overhead remote sensing during the most critical initial response phase for improved situational awareness.

DeSIRE

Status date: 30 May 2013

The DeSIRE (Demonstration of Satellites enabling the Insertion of RPAS in Europe) demonstration project is a joint ESA-EDA initiative aimed at demonstrating the safe insertion of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) in non-segregated airspace using satellites capabilities for RPAS command and control, ATC communications and Mission data transfer to ground, in order to satisfy the needs of potential user communities. The demonstration will be carried out in Spain through several flights using a RPAS (Heron 1) providing airborne maritime surveillance services to the Spanish Users involved in the project.

TWIM

Status date: 29 May 2013

Two Way Information Management (TWIM) is a Feasibility Study to assess the added value of receiving information regarding incidents, public safety issues, criminal behaviour etc. from the general public via their smartphones or other mobile devices, in support of operations of Civil Protection Services (Police, Fire Brigade, Ambulance Service etc).

SEMAFORS

Status date: 22 April 2013

SEMAFORS, the Ship Efficiency Monitoring, weAther Forecasting and Optimised Routing Service is a user focused project in support of the shipping industry.SEMAFORS will investigate, establish and demonstrate through sea trials a concept to improve ship fuel efficiency by providing the means to better planning, avoiding of adverse weather and by making better use of ocean currents. 

ASSIST

Status date: 26 March 2013

Healthcare is facing increasing quality and resource challenges, which telemedicine services hope to solve. But will this make healthcare more efficient or safe? Can satellite communications add value to such services? A newly launched study - ASSIST - will aim to answer these and other questions.

FAAPS

Status date: 19 March 2013

Floods affect more people and cause more property damage than many other natural hazards. FAAPS (Fully Automatic Aqua Processing Service) proposes to support emergency management professionals with the provision of flood extent maps even in rain conditions and over large areas.

eHSA Regulatory

Status date: 20 February 2013

Partnering with Africa to help strengthen health service delivery is a key driver of this project. The goal of the eHSA programme is to develop pan-African eHealth services enabled by satellite to benefit the sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) region. These services focus on providing various types of eHealth services to benefit citizens and health workers.

EASY Feasibility Study

Status date: 12 December 2012

The objective of the EASY feasibility study has been to carry out an analysis of the technical feasibility and commercial viability of "one-stop-shop" services to the high value leisure yachting market mainly but not limited to the Mediterranean Sea, integrating various space assets (Satellite Communications, Satellite Navigation, Earth Observation). The integrated system and associated services shall provide enhanced services in order to render yachting more reliable, safe and "easy", thereby attracting a wider spectrum of potential users.

Blue Belt

Status date: 01 November 2012

Embedded into the SAT-AIS context, this IAP Demonstration Project aims to support the EMSA Blue Belt project. Providing space-based AIS data, it seeks to complement the terrestrial AIS data and provide an added-value source of information for Customs Authorities interested in maritime situational awarenees for vessels and geographical focus areas.

UASatCom

Status date: 04 October 2012

The UASatCom project targets airborne geophysical survey and oil and gas pipeline monitoring services based on an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS). Equipped with suitable sensors and making use of satellite communication and navigation, operation of the UAS beyond line-of-sight is enabled.
