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.

Electronic Offender Monitoring

Status date: 27 April 2016

Electronic Monitoring (EM) is used by several judicial government bodies worldwide to track offenders on probation or subjected to other forms of legal liberty constraints. This Feasibility Study analysed the technical feasibility and economic viability of an EM system/service featuring Galileo, the European Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) and using enhanced cartography and imagery obtained through Earth Observation (EO).

VGTropics

Status date: 22 April 2016

In many African countries, livestock farming is an important source of revenue that improves the quality of life and strengthens the development of the economy. Animal health not only has an impact on animal production and its economic consequences, but zoonoses may also have an important impact on public health.  Real time surveillance and prompt actions are paramount in diminishing the impact of epizootics on livestock. For this reason, early detection and shortening the time between detection, reporting and providing measures to contain an outbreak is crucial.VGTropics is the result of the “Predict” feasibility study which was successfully concluded in 2012. 

ARCTICSAT

Status date: 22 March 2016

The objective of this feasibility study is to assess and validate the requirements for space technologies in support of optimising situational awareness in the Arctic. The major focus is on two application areas – shipping (e-Navigation in the Arctic) and oil & gas (Arctic oil spills).

GridWatch FS

Status date: 22 March 2016

The solution intends to provide owners of High Voltage power infrastructures with useful information for supporting the management of both procedures for inspection and maintenance, and dispatching of electrical energy.

EO Crowd

Status date: 22 February 2016

Over 90% of our seas are unsurveyed. EO Crowd uses crowd sourcing, EO data and open data to fill this data gap.

Com4Offshore

Status date: 17 February 2016

The objective of the feasibility study is the assessment of the technical feasibility and commercial viability of an integrated communication system, enabling a multimodal usage of communication infrastructure and services for offshore wind park construction. The interactive applications of such innovative system include a simplified, reliable and cost effective exchange of voice, video data and positioning information between the contractual partners of offshore construction activities during a complete wind farm project.

InsureApp Service

Status date: 11 February 2016

The objective of this demonstration project is designing, developing and pre-operating a web-based platform for improving the efficiency of insurance claim management with focus on weather-related hazards. The key service offered to the insurance companies is the Flood Claim Report Generator which will automatically generate reports for specific flood or rainfall events based on the best available information.

VeriSpace

Status date: 09 February 2016

VeriSpace was an ESA-funded feasibility study that seeks to identify how space assets, such as Earth Observation (EO), Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and communication technology, can be used to enable business benefits to insurance companies and loss adjusters when managing insurance claims. During the study, the VeriSpace Consortium specified two sustainable, user-driven services that utilise these space-based technologies to meet the needs of those businesses involved in claims management.The VeriSpace feasibility study showed that space assets can contribute to providing services that can help the insurance industry in a number of business processes within the overall insurance claims process, which can ultimately provide efficiency savings to the insurance industry.

GeoNavCon

Status date: 09 February 2016

The objective of the study is the concept preparation for the development of integrated services based on satellite navigation, satellite communication and earth observation technologies to improve availability, accuracy and integrity of position determination, data communication and geo-information for users in remote and constrained environments in the forestry domain. 

SaMoLoSa FS

Status date: 28 January 2016

The Ovinto SaMoLoSa study addresses the use of satellite technology for the reduction of transport risk, security enhancement and optimisation of logistic operations by the tracking and monitoring of extremely dangerous goods in unpowered, mobile transport units such as rail tank cars and intermodal tank containers.
