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.

EASY

Status date: 26 November 2015

Together with traditional chartering, new business lines like yacht brokering, manufacturing assistance, luxury cruising are emerging asking for the availability of innovative services on board. These new businesses require a higher grade of liability towards their customers, hence forcing the providers to put more emphasis on systems and services in order to increase the safety and availability of information during the cruise.

VICOMESTRA

Status date: 30 October 2015

This project is a critical step to the introduction of HD media streaming services from mobile terminals in 2015. The solution is proposed to demonstrate dynamic video transmissions using the latest HEVC video codec running on a portable encoder combined with the latest Inmarsat BGAN HDR and GX satellite services.

MAPP

Status date: 23 October 2015

The increase in piracy incidents in areas such as the Gulf of Aden and the Gulf of Guinea threatens life at sea and causes substantial cost to the shipping industry and governments as vessels transit through the High Risk Areas. 

LMS

Status date: 07 October 2015

In compliance with European and national regulations, the GNSS based livestock transport online monitoring system as well as the related service elements allow the online control of (especially long distance) livestock  transports as well as simplify livestock transport documentation. The solution can be integrated with other vehicle subsystems and transport information such as fuel consumption, temperature conditions, water level control, etc.

OWASIS-UK

Status date: 02 October 2015

OWASIS – UK is a Feasibility Study aiming at developing a sustainable service line improving the monitoring of water availability, quality and distribution by integrating satellite images and innovative terrestrial sensors and information technologies.This study focuses on the UK market and it targets all types of user groups such as industrial users, public water authorities or regulatory organisms. 

iVOICE

Status date: 17 September 2015

This study evaluates improvements to existing voice analysis technology. It is coupled with high fidelity communications signal and GNSS data, aiming to detect situations of mental strain and fatigue in operators. With the aim of offering a new technology – iVOICE, integrated VOIce analysis via satellite Communications Embedded in time and safety-critical environment. It also investigates the potential to develop services linked to high-risk and high-stress environments or dislocated domains, including heavy equipment operation, ground and air transportation for private and commercial use, as well as applications for future use in distributed health care for remotely living populations and peace-keeping communication and navigation services.

SAPI&NS

Status date: 16 September 2015

The SAPI&NS study aims to improve the effectiveness of Search And Rescue operations for civil and military operators (so-called dual use). With satellite communication and satellite navigation, the involved personnel and vehicles (esp. helicopters and boats) can be tracked and status information can be collected.The solution is conceived to be used across different scenarios (air, ground, sea) and will next to tracking services also offer tools for management and coordination of operations.

Status date: 16 September 2015

Feasibility study on new electricity infrastructure management services using space assets

WATERLENS

Status date: 04 September 2015

Feasibility study for new water infrastructure management services using space assets.

SharperSat

Status date: 31 August 2015

With the support of ESA, Finnish company Sharper Shape Ltd is developing innovative services for the improvement of maintenance and recovery of high voltage electricity transportation infrastructure using SatEO, GNSS data and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.
