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.

ALEEGO

Status date: 13 January 2020

ALEEGO online platform is for demanding companies caring for data safety and integrity wishing to inspect their assets using UAV technology, in a simple way.

InsSAT

Status date: 13 January 2020

The InsSAT project delivers a fully functional and operational system of automatic processing and analysis of satellite, meteorological and if needed also aerial data, focused on providing tools for assessment and settlement of insurance claims in the agricultural sector. The project is a CCN to the ASAP (“Advanced Sustainable Agriculture Production”) Demonstration Project that was completed in 2018.

S4CI – Support for Critical Infrastructure

Status date: 13 January 2020

A monitoring service that provides Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) asset owners and operators with resilience against problems associated with structural health through the use of Earth Observation data and in-situ devices. 

GPS Triggered AR System

Status date: 10 January 2020

Imagine you’re walking along Hadrian’s Wall. Your phone vibrates. You pause, hold up your phone and scan the landscape around you. The ghostly figure of a Roman soldier appears on your screen and begins to tell his story...We have developed a new GPS Triggered AR Module that makes it easier and more cost-effective for organisations to engage audiences.

FertiSat

Status date: 09 January 2020

The aim of FertiSat project is to provide farmers with site-specific application maps for nitrogen fertilization of cereal crops. Since absorption of nitrogen by plants is influenced by weather and moisture conditions, those variables are taken into account when determining precise doses of the fertilizer. The service is based mainly on multispectral, high resolution satellite imagery.

Human Switch

Status date: 07 January 2020

Automotive electrification will change the way energy is produced and consumed across the globe due to the resulting increase in local capacity of mobile battery storage.The Human Switch enables increased update and utilisation of EV technology along with improved load balancing to support increased utilisation of renewables, helping to improve air pollution and CO2 issues.The transition from fossil fuel to Electric Vehicles (EVs) will have a seismic impact in the utility, automotive and oil and gas markets as petroleum supply and infrastructure is replaced with power supply and storage. Recent research has modelled the scale of these potential revenues, combining both the need for storage and V2G capabilities, where many EV owners can be aggregated into one, and their energy loads traded on the power exchanges. This research has proven that over £300 per annum of new revenues to owners of EV’s is possible, stretching up-to £1,500 where spare battery discharge can be traded through power exchanges.  This is all balanced against typical usage patterns of EV owners. The complexity of dealing with mobile storage in EV’s vs fixed storage is that you can’t enforce connectivity – the owner can unplug at any time.  In addition, to access the V2G value pool through the power exchange markets, understanding and managing the availability of storage, rate of discharge possible and disconnection risk is central to solving the challenge.   By taking the aggregated load of many EV’s under dynamic management, these issues can be overcome. 

EUROPORT

Status date: 07 January 2020

Ports are fundamental and main part of inter-modal global transport in the world. The growth in freight transport stresses the existing infrastructure to its limits. There are already considerable signs of congestion in the European transport system, e.g. on the roads and in harbors. Congestion will have a negative impact on the costs and time of transportation, which affects the prices and the quality of products.EUROPORT aims to optimize the synchronization between the several transportation modes reducing the downtime in the logistic chain.

miBeez

Status date: 07 January 2020

Development and demonstration of a Integrated Precision Apiculture System including management, monitoring and decision support modules. Development of monitoring devices for installation in beehives and development of management software platform (desktop and mobile app) for use by beekeepers.

IFTRAINING

Status date: 07 January 2020

Virtual reality training is revolutionizing the way we train employees by allowing them to learn by doing. They are more engaged, better prepared and develop new skills faster with data-driven insights. In this project we explore how to use satellite communication to enable virtual training anywhere and space weather to adapt the virtual training according with outdoor conditions.

KORE

Status date: 07 January 2020

KORE improves UK and international agronomists’ and farmers’ crop management by exploiting new precision agriculture techniques to target inputs and increase crop yields.KORE utilises remote sensing and satellite navigation techniques to survey fields easily and cost-effectively.KORE provides simple interpretations of complex information on crop growth and crop health.KORE replaces a successful, proven on-line agronomy service, EssentialsMap.
