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.

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. 

International Satellite Derived Shallow Water Bathymetry Service

Status date: 15 January 2018

A web-based service to provide immediate, off-the-shelf, online access to shallow water depth data derived from very high resolution satellite imagery.

Dively

Status date: 19 December 2017

Dively is the first mobile application that supports a safe experience for underwater sports fans. Thanks to a powerful combination of environmental data and 3D underwater views, planning your next experience will be a breeze. Designed by divers for divers, Dively presents complex earth observation data and bathymetry in a visual, easy and user-friendly way, with the aim of enhancing your experience while boosting your safety.

CapeOutdoors3D

Status date: 19 December 2017

CapeOutdoors3D prototyped a web-based (and conceptualised a mobile) application for tourists planning outdoor activities in Nature Reserves and National Parks in South Africa. The project linked the space technologies Earth Observation and Satellite Navigation with the aim to provide a 3D virtual reality planning tool for tourists. In addition, Earth Observation based fuel condition maps were developed to support protected area authorities in their fire management activities.

KosmoMed

Status date: 19 December 2017

KosmoMed realized a solution for an integrated system of e-Health applications and services supporting the Health Institutions in order to have extensive access to healthiness data exchange and create a multidisciplinary platform to provide professional e-Healthcare services. 

SPOTTITT

Status date: 19 December 2017

Spottitt is the new brand name for the SEWISS service delivered by the project consortium. Spottitt has been conceived to support onshore wind developers, turbine manufacturers and energy providers with the complex, expensive and time consuming process of screening and selecting the most suitable greenfield sites for development, without the need for initial travel to sites of interest.

B-LiFE

Status date: 18 December 2017

The ESA IAP-ARTES 20 “Biological Light Fieldable Laboratory for Emergencies” (B-LiFE) Demonstration Project is the follow-on of the B-LiFE Feasibility Study and deals with a new service providing biological analytical capabilities with integrated space assets for emergency response during health crises and epidemics.

KATOUM

Status date: 18 December 2017

KATOUM is a project dedicated to the setting up of tailored EO-based services and products for the sustainability of investments in the Mediterranean karst regions. Are targeted the areas affected sinkholes, landslides and subsidence associated with a sharp local base level/water table level drop. The latest will occur more frequently with the increase of heat waves in summer time.

BLUE DISCOVERY

Status date: 18 December 2017

BlueDiscovery is an innovative and powerful technology platform designed to provide an efficient and low-cost Access Control and Visitor Information System to Marine Protected Areas (MPAs)and Tourist Ports, and at the same time to provide to them the capability to efficiently offer a rich set of added-value services to visitors.
