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.

COHABIT

Status date: 12 September 2018

COHABIT monitors and assesses in real-time the whereabouts of large wild animals and dynamically generates geo-fenced alerts for visitors to avoid dangerous encounters and for farmers to protects their crops and livestock. Wildlife – human cohabitation is made possible through the use of data analytics, image-recognition, animal tracking and space technology.

SWAIR

Status date: 11 September 2018

The aviation industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the GNSS-based technologies, at the same time being aware of its vulnerabilities, including those originating from Space Weather. SWAIR responds to that reality with a system providing GNSS and Space Weather monitoring and performance assessment products, compliant with international regulations and recommendations.

FAMOS

Status date: 10 September 2018

The objective of the FAMOS project is to improve the claim management, loss adjustment and sales capabilities for forest and agriculture damage insurances. Combining earth observation, IT technology and GNSS, the service supports target users by improving the efficiency of existing business processes. 

ALBA-TROSS

Status date: 10 September 2018

Alba Orbital is working to develop satellite applications which utilize each aircraft’s unique ‘Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast’ (ADS-B) signature. ADS-B signals contain data on flight path, and flight weather conditions, and can be used to enhance global weather forecasts, verify aircraft carbon emissions, and aid in Mayday scenarios, especially when fused with other satellite and ground based data-sets.

Blue SIROS

Status date: 04 September 2018

The project investigates the technical feasibility and commercial viability of an operational system for marine route optimisation, which integrates modelling/forecasts of ocean currents based on near-real time satellite altimetry data services. The service supports commercial users in the maritime community with respect to fuel savings, competiveness and port logistics as well as ship safety.

VIRTUAL CLINIC DIRECT

Status date: 04 September 2018

Trauma to the tibia or other bones leave patients needing extensive rehabilitation over many months. However, a combination of too few hospital beds and the patient’s preference to recover at home means that monthly trips to the hospital predominate the rehabilitation pathway. The frequency of the visit is suboptimal from a care perspective with the risk of complication and readmission a constant issue. The journey is likely to be inconvenient and expensive for the patient. The need for a service that provides daily, remote measurement of rehabilitation variables is needed for the benefit of all stakeholders. Hospitals, Insurance companies, employers, communities, patients and their families want more effective and efficient rehabilitation which is available to everyone, no matter where they live.  Virtual Clinic Direct leverages the integration of Satellite Assets (Satcom and GNSS) with an intelligent medical device architecture (sensors, microprocessors, smart phones, machine learning, Bluetooth Low energy, 3G & 4G etc.) to create a ubiquitous service that measures and tracks:  Healing rate of fractured boneLevel of behavioral compliancePatient progress against benchmarkRisk of complication and readmissionVirtual Clinic Direct leverages the integration of Satellite Assets (Satcom and GNSS) with an intelligent medical device architecture (sensors, microprocessors, smart phones, machine learning, Bluetooth Low energy, 3G&4G etc.) to create a ubiquitous service that measures and tracks:  Healing rate of fractured boneLevel of behavioral compliancePatient progress against benchmarkRisk of complication and readmission

SmartCARE

Status date: 04 September 2018

SmartCARE is an ICT platform of advanced e-health services where physicians and patients meet and manage daily activities, within a therapeutic process, in a collaborative way enabling an optimization of healthcare rehabilitation at home. SmartCARE IHC (Integrated Home Care) services will assure a constant verification of the therapeutic process without requiring the on-site presence of medical staff.

dYbydX

Status date: 04 September 2018

Routing information to navigate the urban environment in accordance with users’ personal mobility needs.

WAMCam

Status date: 03 September 2018

Developed by Archangel Imaging, WAMCam is an innovative solution integrating satellite communication and machine learning technologies to radically improve wildlife monitoring and population studies. Researchers and conservationists working in remote regions can deploy AI-enabled cameras to remotely monitor animal traps and study areas. Receiving prompt notifications of the wildlife identified by the cameras revolutionizes the effectiveness of conservation studies.

SolumScire (SC)

Status date: 31 August 2018

SolumScire makes soil data more valuable and useful. This service is based on better referenced and new spatial soil data and combines this with plant condition data to get better information on soils and plants as well as their important interactions. The data base improves modelling for precision farming to increase yield and to lower emissions.
