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.

UASatCom

Status date: 04 October 2012

The UASatCom project targets airborne geophysical survey and oil and gas pipeline monitoring services based on an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS). Equipped with suitable sensors and making use of satellite communication and navigation, operation of the UAS beyond line-of-sight is enabled.

Integrating Space Assets for UK Civil Resilience

Status date: 24 September 2012

The project is aimed at integrating space assets in a manner that will better serve the UK resilience community during crisis response. The goal is to provide a service that enhances the responder and decision maker tool-kits through the integration of existing space capabilities.

SAFEDEM Feasibility Study

Status date: 27 August 2012

Nowadays landmines and Explosive Remnants of War (ERW) still represent a danger for civilians, even long after conflicts. In addition, both dramatically hinder the recovery of economies impacted by a conflict, because resources located within areas such as arable land, infrastructure and water suspected of mine contamination cannot be exploited. In the SAFEDEM project, innovative methodologies based on well suited space assets will be exploited for an integrated end-to-end demining assistance service.

FruitLook

Status date: 17 August 2012

Water is a critical resource in South Africa, which challenges the agricultural sector to reduce irrigation water consumption while keeping production sustainable. Adequate information on the crop water, growth and nutrient status is crucial to improve water management.The FruitLook pre-operational service demonstrates to Western Cape grape and deciduous fruit farmers the benefits of integrated satellite technologies in their daily water and farm management.

SAVEWATER

Status date: 07 August 2012

The Savewater Project conducts a feasibility study for integrated Satellite - AUV (autonomous underwater vehicle) applications in the field of water management. The proposed application integrates satellite services (earth observation and navigation) and mobile platform services (in situ measurements and visualization of water characteristics).

VECMAP Feasibility Study

Status date: 30 July 2012

Hitchhiking on international trade and travel, foreign species that act as vectors of disease (e.g. mosquitoes, ticks) may establish themselves in new environments world-wide if conditions are favourable. VECMAP aims at assessing the feasibility of developing a tool and associated service for automated mosquito mapping and forecasting.

Gulliver

Status date: 03 July 2012

The GULLIVER feasibility study aims at assessing the added value of space assets in securing the delivery of pharmaceutical goods. For that purpose, Novacom Services has fostered the creation of a wide community of experienced users covering the end-to-end distribution chain.

SADA

Status date: 22 June 2012

The SADA projects aim to improve the socio-economic impact of land release activities in Mine Action. Three parallel feasibility studies have been evaluating the use of space assets to assist the Mine Action community, with a broad scope, covering activities such as risk and impact analysis, planning, resource management, field operations and reporting.

INSA

Status date: 15 June 2012

The project utilizes satellite images, in situ data and historical data dericing technical conclusions helping decision makers in their tasks of land prioritizing and allocating the use of mine action resources to improve socio-economic impact as well as avoiding unnecessary deployments of clearance activities in non-contaminated areas. Navigation and satellite communications help to streamline field activities, logging and shared database access, as well as to support collection and georeferencing of airborne data.

IRISS

Status date: 14 June 2012

The IRISS feasibility project has identified the applications and requirements for an integrated information, communication and navigation gateway within the rail transport sector, designed and developed a solution and performed a proof of concept activity.
