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.

SAQM

Status date: 27 November 2019

The project aims to test the feasibility of providing accurate and high resolution global air quality modelling services using vehicles extracted from very high-resolution earth observation imagery.  Providing detailed air quality modelling for a large number of cities will improve decision making, enable efficient and cost effective urban growth and reduce the air pollution impact on human health.

Cerberus

Status date: 26 November 2019

BlackShore’s crowdsourcing platform Cerberus reinforces developing country economies utilizing satellite imagery amplifying sustainable food production while preserving the environment. This is achieved through the power of satellites, socially conscious gaming and the power of the crowd.

Earth Rover

Status date: 19 November 2019

Earth Rover is developing integrated crop scouting and laser weeding. We are targeting the high value vegetable market, and are currently testing commercial prototypes of tractor-mounted crop scouting with UK’s largest organic brassica farmer.

IoT4Verticality

Status date: 18 November 2019

IoT4verticality is a decision support solution to improve the current inspection procedures and enable condition-based maintenance of critical infrastructures; it monitors the verticality of structures, which is particularly important in tall structures such as flanged poles and guyed poles/towers.

DroSecMa

Status date: 15 November 2019

“The fence no longer defines the perimeter.” Exponential increase in capability and reduction in cost has made drones a truly disruptive technology. Their capabilities may be leveraged for significantly improved surveillance and data collection but that also represent a significant and evolving threat. DroSecMa leverages the capabilities of drones while providing real-time threat mitigation.

TreeTops

Status date: 15 November 2019

Treetops use high-resolution images from Satellites, UAVs and Airplanes, to facilitate the use of remote sensing in the forest industry. This online tool analyse forest Canopy Cover and Single Tree Detection. Compared to traditional measurement methods, this new solution enables more reliable analysis for forest monitoring and estimation of the forest assets.

NG-RMP

Status date: 14 November 2019

The Next Generation Recognised Maritime Picture (NG-RMP) provides a real time marine solution for the monitoring of vessels, complemented with advanced decision support. The system provides for risk determination from the viewpoint of either navies and the security of countries EEZ or insurance organisation to determine risk exposure of their marine vessel portfolio in real time worldwide.

Services enabled by HAPS (Thales Alenia Space)

Status date: 14 November 2019

The need for effective surveillance covering large surface areas around the world is expected to boost the market for HAPS.The study objectives are:to define services where HAPS can play a key role in the short-term, mainly for maritime and border surveillance, support to ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Recognition) activities and emergency response applications,to technically and economically assess and characterise the previous applications and services complemented by satellites.

Smeeth

Status date: 08 November 2019

SMEETH designed to supports health researchers handling a large database on atmospheric composition, meteorological data, and correlated geo-referenced medical records, in a web-based Geographic Information System (GIS) environment. The final goal of SMEETH is to determine the plausibility of providing early warning of outbreaks of respiratory diseases using satellite measurements.

SOLAR3

Status date: 08 November 2019

SOLAR3 leverages core space assets including navigation, earth observation and satellite communication, as well as the recent advances in solar-powered unmanned flight and hyperspectral imaging technologies towards the realisation of large-scale diagnostics of vegetation for precision farming.
