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.

SURMON

Status date: 18 June 2015

The SURMON Demonstration Project targets airborne Geophysical Survey (GS) and oil  Pipeline Monitoring (PM) services based on the use of a Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS). Equipped with suitable sensors and making use of satellite communication and navigation, operation of the RPA beyond line-of-sight is enabled.

GeoSHM

Status date: 17 June 2015

GeoSHM (GNSS and Earth Observation for Structural Health Monitoring) is a Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) system that integrates GNSS and Earth Observation technologies to offer an integrated solution for the maintenance of different types of asset. 

TIM

Status date: 16 June 2015

Efficient asset management is required to meet increasingly stringent demands on safety and reliable performance of new and ageing infrastructure under varying and sometimes hazardous environments.  The Transport Infrastructure Management (TIM) Service is planned as a new generation of asset monitoring services that can be deployed across multinational organizations. The concept is based on the integration of location and mapping capabilities of space assets and ground local point sensor networks - delivering data in the most efficient manner.

INTOGENER

Status date: 12 June 2015

INTOGENER (INTegration of EO data and GNSS-R signals for ENERgy applications) Demo is a project aiming at demonstrating the operational capabilities of a water flow monitoring and prediction system aimed at hydropower production and water management organizations.

DG-TRAC feasibility study

Status date: 11 June 2015

The DG-Trac project addresses the tracking and tracing of dangerous goods in the medical sector integrating and using existing space technologies (navigational services, communication services) with GSM/UMTS and Internet.

ICWM for MED

Status date: 04 June 2015

ICWM for MED solution provides water quality monitoring and surveillance of coastal areas by integrating information from: Earth Observation, Navigation and Communication satellite assets; in situ measurements; crowdsourcing information. It intends to address the current limitations from both Earth Observation based and traditional at sea measurements methods in order to support the duties of environmental agencies and coastguard authorities.

SIS-SREM Feasibility Study

Status date: 03 June 2015

The SIS-SREM (Safety and Information Systems for Ski Resorts in Emerging Markets) feasibility study investigates and assesses the technical feasibility and commercial viability of a sustainable service which will support the management of ski resorts (development, operation, maintenance) in order to reduce the operational cost and services which support safety and enjoyment of their visitors.

DDM

Status date: 03 June 2015

The Dam and Dike Monitor (DDM)  is an innovative tool that aims at providing better information (in near real time) for dam and dike maintenance and flood management. An on-line interface is provided to the users showing the actual risks of dam and dike failures, based on dam and dike monitoring techniques and flood forecasting. As the Dam and Dike Monitor is internet based, there is no need to develop ad-hoc software and hardware infrastructure.

InsureApp Service - The hazard control room for the insurance Industry

Status date: 19 May 2015

 The objective of this project is to demonstrate a web-based Water Control Room which improves the efficiency of insurance claim management and water management before, during and after weather-related hazards. The key service offered is the Flood and Rain Report Generator which automatically generates reports for specific flood or rainfall events based on information from satellites, radars, gauges and crowdsourcing

IAP-Copernicus

Status date: 08 May 2015

The IAP-Copernicus study addresses the use of space assets, combined with terrestrial « web2mobile » technologies, in the provision of reliable, ad-hoc information to all stakeholders involved in the monitoring of risks and mitigation of hazards impacting people.  The study focuses on the development of an economically sustainable « Business Services Platform » for two use cases: public safety in Belgium and food security in Senegal.
