BROWSE PROJECTS

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.

Tourism Impact Monitoring Service

Status date: 05 March 2018

Realise and monitor sustainable tourist destinations using Earth observation satellites.

WJETSS

Status date: 22 February 2018

WJETSS enables transportable, consumable and perishable “Things” or dangerous cargo (IoT) to “tell” their Whole-Journey Experience (WJE) from production to consumption, through sensor data monitoring and collection (“SenSourcing”) from all freight legs.

SatBAMS

Status date: 21 February 2018

The Battery Array Management System automates the storage and distribution of power. Unlike existing battery arrays, the BAMS will maintain better Security of Supply, ensure that the reserve does not loose capacity over time and extends operation of batteries by 50%-100%.

High Precision Navigation System for Trucks

Status date: 20 February 2018

Autonomous driving and reverse parking of truck-trailer combinations are very attractive for the transportation and logistics industry to reduce the transportation costs and to avoid accidents. 

LiveLand

Status date: 20 February 2018

Transport operators across the UK face significant challenges in monitoring and detecting landslides and subsidence across their networks.  LiveLand supports asset owners and operators to assess and monitor high-risk areas of their transport network providing improved geological hazard information at regional, network and local levels using integrated data from Earth observation satellites and GNSS. 

WILDWEGO

Status date: 16 February 2018

WILDWEGO (in the WILDLERNESS WE GO)is an innovative Augmented Reality (AR) ecotourism game fostering biodiversity conservation in wilderness areas by tourists “on the go” in parks and by their family, friends and social networks contacts “remotely”.

Profumo

Status date: 15 February 2018

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.Acquired data is used in the Profumo service center to produce reliable high resolution meteo-marine forecasts and nearly real time information, allowing the provision of helpful route optimization and navigation services also in a complex and constrained basin as the Mediterranean one.To satisfy the demand of commercial customers, Profumo has conceived innovative services expressly for the middle short routes.Dynamic Routing at Mediterranean scale.The service provides pre-voyage route planning and updated information for optimal re-routing for vessels. This is possible due to the Profumo’s integrated approach involving weather observations, forecasts and optimal route computation through the modeling of ship’s characteristics, for predicting the vessel’s specific response to weather phenomena, in terms of seakeeping and fuel consumption.Moreover, the system provides frequently refreshed meteo information allowing in-route corrections, therefore optimizing speed and course.Navigation assistanceBy using the navigation assistance service, the crew is fully supported in the route decision and planning. Profumo, integrating real time meteo-marine conditions, increases the safety and the navigation comfort through the application of the most recent guidelines for avoiding dangerous situations in adverse weather and sea conditions.High definition weather productsThanks to the cooperative meteo data injected in high resolution, local-scale forecasts, Profumo provides detailed predictions with a native (not rescaled) resolution of few kilometers.

HumaNav-Next

Status date: 08 February 2018

HumaNav Next demo project addresses the Aid & Development community’s urgent need to increase the security of humanitarian missions. It will develop a fully integrated and reliable vehicle on-board solution, providing:• Geo-location, fleet monitoring, management and security• Telecommunications: voice, messaging and dataThe solution will provide seamless world-wide coverage and full service regardless of the lack of any local infrastructure, by using Iridium satcom and GNSS location. It will be adapted to humanitarian vehicles deployed in field missions in underdeveloped regions and conflict areas. All services will be available while driving.

GrazingSpace

Status date: 19 January 2018

GrazingSpace is a satellite based information service that supports dairy farmers that want to keep their cows grazing in pastures instead of indoor feeding.The service supports optimizing the grazing management by delivering timely information to the farmer on where to graze his cows and when to move them to another field. Biomass information determines the estimated size of the strip/field, and the cow movement tracks, translated into grazing behaviour data indicate if cows are still efficiently grazing or have to be moved.

i-FishSAT

Status date: 17 January 2018

Intelligent Integrated Information System for Sustainable Fisheries Management via Satellite (iFishSAT) has developed a range of solutions that exploit space assets (Communication, Earth observation and GNSS satellites) to streamline the fresh seafood value chain by allowing fishermen to sell produce to customers whilst still at sea thus, providing direct linkage to a broader customer base and without geographical limitations as well as reducing waste through discard of produce that is desirable in the local market. This new model for the seafood industry transforms it from a local or regional activity to a Europe-wide open marketplace where profit for fishermen is enhanced whilst also ensuring that retailers and consumers get the best quality produce at prices that are not unduly inflated by agents’ fees.
