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.

HV-SATPROTEC

Status date: 16 September 2015

Feasibility study on new electricity infrastructure management services using space assets

SAPI&NS

Status date: 16 September 2015

The SAPI&NS study aims to improve the effectiveness of Search And Rescue operations for civil and military operators (so-called dual use). With satellite communication and satellite navigation, the involved personnel and vehicles (esp. helicopters and boats) can be tracked and status information can be collected.The solution is conceived to be used across different scenarios (air, ground, sea) and will next to tracking services also offer tools for management and coordination of operations.

WATERLENS

Status date: 04 September 2015

Feasibility study for new water infrastructure management services using space assets.

SharperSat

Status date: 31 August 2015

With the support of ESA, Finnish company Sharper Shape Ltd is developing innovative services for the improvement of maintenance and recovery of high voltage electricity transportation infrastructure using SatEO, GNSS data and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.

GIRP

Status date: 25 August 2015

Subsidence due to clay shrinkage is the largest ground instability issue affecting residential property in the UK (75% of all valid insurance claims) with rectification costs averaging £250m (295m Euro) p.a.  Research by the insurance sector (Swiss RE and Lloyds of London) indicates that the extent of subsidence both in the UK and Europe will worsen in line with climate change forecast.  The insurance sector equally recognizes the need for significantly improved profiling and predictive tools to identify and target risk mitigation management.The Ground Instability Risk Profiler (GIRP) service is planned to enable an accurate and predictive ground stability risk profiling service to the insurance industry in a range of flexible formats through the integration of property data sources and satellite information.

EFFORS-FS

Status date: 25 August 2015

The aim of the present feasibility study is to develop an Enhanced Flood Forecasting System for Critical Infrastructures Protection in medium size Alpine catchments.The service is designed to address infrastructure located either on the river itself (e.g. bridge) or in the flood plan (e.g. a building).

Low Cost Hybrid Terminal Triple Play Solution

Status date: 18 August 2015

The aim of the project is to develop a low cost end-to-end solution for satellite based triple-play services. The platform uses existing infrastructure to enable TV, telephone and IP communication. Satellites are used for downlink communication and different terrestrial media are used for the return traffic.

Mimir 2.0

Status date: 18 August 2015

The project will continue the development of the Mímir server, Forsway’s solution for satellite hubs providing one-way Internet over satellite. The product will be extended to be a usable component in all types of one-way Internet over satellite deployments, covering deployments from small ISPs with a few hundred users to the largest operators with high performance multi-transponder services covering several million users.

Forsway S2

Status date: 18 August 2015

The objective of this project is to develop a Satellite modem for Internet access in rural areas using DVB-S2 technology. The product is intended to complement existing ADSL terrestrial based solutions. Where it is too expensive and /or too time consuming to get a terrestrial infrastructure for broadband, the Forsway modem offers a cost effective, easy to use solution to access the Internet based on satellite DVBS2 distribution associated with a multi-standard terrestrial return link.

TransparentForests (FS)

Status date: 14 August 2015

Forest products such as paper, wood and composite materials are used in everything from construction to news distribution and energy generation, yet they may represent considerable environmental and social impacts. Today, knowing the origin and life cycle of product constituents is important for both retailers and consumers. Major corporations do not like to be associated with poor forest management: it is bad for business and for customer relations.
