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.

TRISS

Status date: 20 July 2016

Humans spend energy and money to plant and manage trees in their habitat. Tree information is essential to enable rational management: Tree numbers, their position, height, crown size, health, habitat condition and species are relevant to professionals managing both urban and rural environments. This feasibility study focused on satellite based services providing or updating tree information. 

Improving the Efficiency of Loss Adjustment and Claims Management in the Insurance Industry

Status date: 13 July 2016

The study analyses the feasibility and viability potential of an earth-observation based service for supporting the claims management process in the forest insurance industry. A main aspect is loss adjustment after large-scale disasters with a focus on storm events and forest fires.   

BIOSCOPE FS

Status date: 05 July 2016

BIOSCOPE investigated the technical and economical viability of a vegetation monitoring system based on the integrated use of satellites and Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS).

BIOSCOPE

Status date: 05 July 2016

Agriculture is becoming more and more data driven and farmers are in demand of relevant, fresh information about their crops for location specific treatment. BIOSCOPE sets up a unique service based on satellite imagery when possible and drone imagery as backup when clouds prevent an undisturbed view.

HAMS

Status date: 01 July 2016

Using Satellite applications in conjunction with terrestrial sensors to better monitor and understand heritage assets. The nature of maintaining a large portfolio of heritage assets provides a large opportunity to use remote sensing techniques to deliver a more efficient method for monitoring distributed assets.

FLARE

Status date: 10 June 2016

FLARE is an integrated software package and data service which supports the global forestry insurance industry in asset estimation, risk management and loss adjustment. This feasibility study analysed the operational, technical and economic viability of a FLARE system/ service providing Earth Observation and Global Navigation Satellite System data and mapping products, within a simple software interface. 

3INSAT

Status date: 07 June 2016

3InSat demonstration project developed, tested and verified a new satellite-based subsystem, based on the Ansaldo STS ERTMS solution, for allowing the SIL4 train localization function at Signalling System Level by using GNSS. 3InSat also implemented an integrated solution based on the combination of SatCom, 3G/4G systems and TETRA to realize the link between the on board train control system and wayside signalling infrastructure. 

WIMS

Status date: 02 June 2016

Using a variety of space applications to improve and streamline the maintenance and monitoring regimes of the water industry within the UK.

Project U

Status date: 20 May 2016

Project U is about a new generation software/hardware platform and services that enable an enhanced User-centered learning experience combining together physical and digital presence, promoting active participation versus passive presence.

SatSoHoAfrica

Status date: 20 May 2016

SatSoHoAfrica is allowing the provision of competitive broadband internet services to Small-office-Home-office (SoHo) users in Sub-Saharan Africa.
