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.

AIR-Portal

Status date: 02 November 2016

The economic and technical feasibility of AIR-Portal, an air quality dashboard for European cities, was shown in this study. The consortium developed in a demand driven development the requirements of three major European cities into a working proof of concept. With this proof of concept the technical feasibility was proven, furthermore a business case was developed proving the economic feasibility.

ISSWIND

Status date: 02 November 2016

This project consists on a study to define Supporting Services for the Wind Power Industry, having in mind the possible use of space technology, assets or products and its added value, gaps and possible improvements.

DateGIS -

Status date: 22 October 2016

DateGIS is an integrated Geo-information System (GIS) for Date Palm precision agriculture. Objective of DateGIS is to provide information products and services on date farms and palm trees for:a)   Provide date farm management information to increase date production, quality and yield;b)   Development and management of a national RPW control program;c)    Reduction of farm financial losses caused by RPW infestation;d)   Improve water use efficiency, irrigation and fertilizing management.

XcitID

Status date: 17 October 2016

The Xcit'€™ID project is dedicated to design, develop and validate a pre-operational integrated service platform aiming at significantly improving the management of the transport supply chain of temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical goods.

Saltwater

Status date: 05 October 2016

Saltwater is a service for aquaculture companies using Earth Observation and hyperspectral in situ instruments for the monitoring of harmful phytoplankton. Monitoring results are provided on a high spatial and temporal resolution. When combined with other environmental data the users can predict the movement of harmful phytoplankton, thereby reducing loss of stock and increasing feeding days.

PROTECT

Status date: 28 September 2016

The PROTECT project aims to exploit existing systems and infrastructure in conjunction with applicable space based assets to provide cost-effective added-value technology centred services that provide improved situational awareness to both on-board and shore based stakeholders, based on real-time innovative integration of piracy and sensor information/data.

I-PORT

Status date: 07 September 2016

The I-PORT demonstration project involves creation and demonstration of IT services for optimisation of inter-modal container transport in Ports. The project is a collaboration between AIMES, Avanti Communications Group plc, ContainerPort, exactEarth and Atlantic Containers Ltd and involves deployment of systems within the UK and also in Germany, in collaboration with The Institute of Shipping Economics and Logistics (ISL) and DBH.

Profumo FS

Status date: 02 September 2016

Profumo proposes novel weather-based services for the Mediterranean navigation with the aim of granting fuel saving, pollution reduction and improving safety for passengers, crew, goods and ships’ instruments. The idea is to establish a cooperative schema (between commercial vessels) where meteo-marine data is collected from standard and non-standard on-board instrumentation and used to  produce innovative high resolution meteo-marine products, and to provide route optimization and navigation services.

PIMSIS

Status date: 01 September 2016

To demonstrate the added value of space assets for the monitoring of the integrity and safety of gas & oil transmission pipelines. 

agriloc FS

Status date: 24 August 2016

agriloc targets significant improvements in agriculture through automation. For this purpose a thorough user survey was carried out to identify current problems and needs of farmers. Projected agriloc systems and services were then validated in a user workshop. The solutions are aimed at supporting farming processes through integration of highly accurate Guidance, Navigation, and Control, reliable communications utilising communication satellites, weather and satellite data, and automation of farm management and process planning.
