HumaNav-Next

Status date: 08 February 2018

HumaNav Next demo project addresses the Aid & Development community’s urgent need to increase the security of humanitarian missions. It will develop a fully integrated and reliable vehicle on-board solution, providing:• Geo-location, fleet monitoring, management and security• Telecommunications: voice, messaging and dataThe solution will provide seamless world-wide coverage and full service regardless of the lack of any local infrastructure, by using Iridium satcom and GNSS location. It will be adapted to humanitarian vehicles deployed in field missions in underdeveloped regions and conflict areas. All services will be available while driving.

Curio Canopy

Status date: 07 February 2018

Combining analysis of satellite imagery with crowdsourced data, this urban tree montioring platform connects communities and urban forestry professionals. It provides an open data service that drives improved understanding of urban trees and access to better information in order to: i) increase tree planting and tree care; ii) improve environmental conservation management and planning; iii) support educational and communication resources for learning and knowledge-sharing.

EOMST

Status date: 06 February 2018

The EOMST system developed by 21Net enables Internet services on board high-speed trains. The system uses multiple communication technologies to access the internet: cellular, WiFi and satellite. A Mobile Access Router manages the links  depending on their availabilities. 

i-FishSAT

Status date: 17 January 2018

Intelligent Integrated Information System for Sustainable Fisheries Management via Satellite (iFishSAT) has developed a range of solutions that exploit space assets (Communication, Earth observation and GNSS satellites) to streamline the fresh seafood value chain by allowing fishermen to sell produce to customers whilst still at sea thus, providing direct linkage to a broader customer base and without geographical limitations as well as reducing waste through discard of produce that is desirable in the local market. This new model for the seafood industry transforms it from a local or regional activity to a Europe-wide open marketplace where profit for fishermen is enhanced whilst also ensuring that retailers and consumers get the best quality produce at prices that are not unduly inflated by agents’ fees. 

International Satellite Derived Shallow Water Bathymetry Service

Status date: 15 January 2018

A web-based service to provide immediate, off-the-shelf, online access to shallow water depth data derived from very high resolution satellite imagery.

POINTSAT

Status date: 21 December 2017

POINTSAT enables professional remote collaboration services of support, instruction and training in challenging conditions for the maritime, offshore, and energy industry sectors. The project integrates satellite infrastructure and augmented reality technology into a smart and reliable solution for all technical collaboration needs.

SPOTTITT

Status date: 19 December 2017

Spottitt is the new brand name for the SEWISS service delivered by the project consortium. Spottitt has been conceived to support onshore wind developers, turbine manufacturers and energy providers with the complex, expensive and time consuming process of screening and selecting the most suitable greenfield sites for development, without the need for initial travel to sites of interest.

Dively

Status date: 19 December 2017

Dively is the first mobile application that supports a safe experience for underwater sports fans. Thanks to a powerful combination of environmental data and 3D underwater views, planning your next experience will be a breeze. Designed by divers for divers, Dively presents complex earth observation data and bathymetry in a visual, easy and user-friendly way, with the aim of enhancing your experience while boosting your safety.

CapeOutdoors3D

Status date: 19 December 2017

CapeOutdoors3D prototyped a web-based (and conceptualised a mobile) application for tourists planning outdoor activities in Nature Reserves and National Parks in South Africa. The project linked the space technologies Earth Observation and Satellite Navigation with the aim to provide a 3D virtual reality planning tool for tourists. In addition, Earth Observation based fuel condition maps were developed to support protected area authorities in their fire management activities.
