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.

Salt Water Surface Water Monitoring

Status date: 16 July 2015

 BlueLeg Monitor (BLM) from the Netherlands investigates the use of its proprietary remote sensing technology for water quality monitoring in aquaculture. In particular Hazardous Algal Blooms create serious damage to aquaculture by incidentally suffocating fish and the release of toxins. This tendency is expected to increase as a result of global warming and nutrients run off into surface water, as well as by transport of invasive species of algae due to the release of untreated ballast water from ocean ships. 

Arctic IAP

Status date: 08 July 2015

Telespazio VEGA UK are developing a range of value-added services using layers of geo-information and commercial data that can be customised to the needs of specific operators. The services include primarily satellite derived imagery VMS (24/7 Vessel Monitoring System) from the Telespazio Group, AIS (Automatic Identification System) provided by Canadian consortium  member exactEarth Europe Ltd, and low bandwidth high fidelity image transfer system AnsuR, a Norwegian company.Maritime expertise and access to the market through Marine South East and additional maritime data layers are provided by Stevenson Astrosat and HR Wallingford.This solution presents a viable Arctic Integrated Situational Awareness Service building upon existing operational or semi-operational services provided by consortium members, and adding additional features believed to be of value to the user community that will help to differentiate and ensure the success of the service.

Peat Spotter

Status date: 07 July 2015

Peat Spotter was conceived by Rezatec Ltd. as a potential data service to provide cost-effective information for sustainable peatland management.  Our intent is that Peat Spotter will reduce the amount of expensive field work required to gather information on peatland location, intactness and carbon content over time.

SATForM 3D

Status date: 06 July 2015

A tremendous opportunity exists for the global forest industry to capture the combined benefits of cutting edge technologies in the areas of satellite remote sensing technology, ground forest measurement, data analytics and cloud computing. The goal of the SATForM 3D project has been to design and develop a web-based application -Forest Mapper- integrating different satellite Earth Observation (EO) and aerial LiDAR with an innovative ground-based Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS) forest measurement technique and data analytics, to provide better management and more efficient utilisation of our global forest resources.The project had the support of the main forest owners and forest managers in Ireland, who have collaborated in defining and validating the Forest Mapper features so that it now provides an innovative solution to their current needs. 

ASSIST WRM (FS)

Status date: 06 July 2015

The “Advanced Snow plough and Salt spreader based on Innovative Space Technologies“ (ASSIST) project aims to deliver a comprehensive feasibility study on the technical and economic sustainability of a winter road maintenance system based on space technologies. ASSIST proposes a concept developed along with the improvement and integration of two main assets: Satellite Navigation (and related augmentation systems) and Earth Observations to get additional digital information about roads and weather forecasts.

SARONTAR

Status date: 19 June 2015

The SARONTAR (Situational Awareness and Command & Control of Rescue Forces in Alpine Regions) project comprises the demonstration and pilot implementation of a satellite-supported operations control system for a more effective and a more coordinated proceeding of the rescue forces in alpine rescue missions.It is based on GNSS for positioning and navigation. Topographic maps and high resolution orthophotos form the basis for geoinformation. As communication techniques, terrestrial and satellite communication is used to provide a high level of reliability and thus seamless communication between rescue forces, mission controllers and emergency management centres.

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.
