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.

SHM Telecom Towers

Status date: 02 July 2014

The project “SHM for Telecom Towers” aims at developing a remote monitoring service to support the assessment of the structural integrity of assets, as the towers for Radio-TV Broadcasting or other metal infrastructures, in order to increase safety and optimize the maintenance procedures and promote the transition from a time-based maintenance to a condition-based one.

ISABELIA

Status date: 27 June 2014

The ISABELIA Feasibility Study specified and validated the sustainability of services and that would provide users at sea with near real time information on dangerous ice situations, indicators of collision risk and on risk of grounding, thereby improving the safety of vessels in the Baltic Sea. 

Earth Rider

Status date: 12 June 2014

The Earth Rider concept, conceived and developed by Space Synapse Systems Ltd, attempts to educate, enlighten, and engage end users with environmental and space awareness issues by:Sharing the personal experiences of space travel by astronauts;Producing high-quality planetarium shows;Creating an effective immersive experience that allows end users to “experience “the awe of spaceflight; andDisseminating downstream Earth Observation satellite applications. 

WIAP

Status date: 26 May 2014

This study aims to identify and realise the benefits that can be brought to the wind power service industry by integrating new and/or improved space capabilities. The study focusses on the users/stakeholders of the wind industry to understand their needs, with the aim to identify a potential gap in the infrastructure.

TalkingFields

Status date: 09 May 2014

TalkingFields aims to increase the efficiency of agricultural production via precision farming by means of geo-information services. It integrates space and ground-based assets to achieve this target. The TalkingFields Demonstration Study is the result of a feasibility study which was successfully concluded in 2009.

CAESAR

Status date: 02 May 2014

The CAESAR feasibility study, finished in March 2014, focused on a service able to provide detailed and timely information on the weather and marine conditions to the maritime Search and Rescue (SAR) coordination centres, with the aim of reducing the risks and improving the efficiency of SAR operations.

REACT

Status date: 14 April 2014

The REACT project involves the project consortium working with the Irish Dublin Fire Brigade to develop a system that will ensure constant and reliable communication for exchange of real-time information between deployed emergency response personnel and its relevant command centre during a crisis or disaster situation.

PREDICT

Status date: 10 April 2014

The objective of the PREDICT (Prevent and Respond to Epidemics and Demonstrate Information and Communication Technologies) feasibility study was to define sustainable new services for animal health surveillance and early warning. The combination of Earth Observation and state-of-the-art Information and Communication Technology enables to improve early reporting and rapid response and contributes to limit the spread of epidemics.

MATIST

Status date: 09 April 2014

The MATIST services provide ground motion information to operators of alpine transportation infrastructures such as railway companies, institutes representing the national roads and companies from the energy sector. 

SAMBA

Status date: 07 April 2014

The objective of SAMBA is to establish feasibility of space-based services for maritime emission monitoring. SAMBA will achieve its objective by combining AIS/GPS-based maritime emissions with remote sensing-based atmospheric pollution monitoring into maritime emission compliance monitoring and information provision service.
