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.

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.

EuroPORT

Status date: 11 June 2012

The objectives of this feasibility study are to assess the technical feasibility and commercial viability of an integrated solution and associated services which support the optimization of freight transport through ports (e.g. routing and scheduling), based on a better understanding of users and stakeholders needs and transport conditions, and better information exchange. 

Pims

Status date: 11 June 2012

Pipeline integrity management is a key concept in the gas and pipeline industry. This concept involves the definition of a Pipeline Integrity Management System (PIMS), which describes all activities to ensure that the pipeline system is safe and operational 24/7.

iTRAQ

Status date: 25 May 2012

iTRAQ is a project to develop a dynamic traffic management system for optimising use of the road network whilst meeting growing demands to sustain high standards of air quality in urban environments.
