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.

SYMPA

Status date: 18 October 2018

Sympa: “All-around solution for the sustainable monitoring and control of Marine protected Areas”.Vitrociset Belgium, le Centre Spatial de Liège, and LaMMA joined in Consortium, developed a system for the supervision of the touristic and commercial traffic for the benefit of the Marine Protected Area and maritime authorities, by mean of providing added value location based services to tourists and integrating this information with AIS data.Sympa service offering is completed by the “Vessel Detection” facility that exploits the Sentinel images for target detection; and the “Water quality” monitoring which integrates earth observation into innovative biogeochemical and hydrodynamic models as support the for a sustainable and competitive tourism.

Curio Canopy

Status date: 11 October 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.

HiVaCroM

Status date: 11 October 2018

HiVaCroM uses a time series of Sentinel-1 SAR observations as the basis for generating field-level canopy cover measurements for high value potato crops on a national scale. The canopy cover measurements are required frequently, throughout the growing season, as input to yield models and to inform crop performance metrics. The yield model and crop performance metrics provided important information that growers use to manage crop-related risk during the growing season. 

GroWise

Status date: 02 October 2018

This demonstration project builds on previous work with radar carried out in the UK to develop crop growth models for a variety of arable crops. GroWise will see new models built which will give credit providers an accurate view of the crops in the ground.  It will also allow them to deliver agronomic advice, via a new app, to farmers – something which is currently lacking with small/subsistence farmers. By improving the crops of small-scale farmers it is hoped that credit providers have their loans repaid and they feel more confident in loaning greater sums, to more farmers than currently. 

River Nexus

Status date: 02 October 2018

River Nexus is a game changer for the life of millions of people in developing countries. We cover through a single infrastructure the essential needs for a sustainable development. It offers a productive use of clean energy, telecommunication and climate services based on space technology applications. Its operational model targets not only local, but also national and international value chains

RECIPE

Status date: 27 September 2018

RECIPE provides low cost 3D models of cultural assets through a COTS tool. Input data shall be EO satellite images and photos taken by tourists,  via mobile phone cameras.

SAVANT

Status date: 26 September 2018

SAVANT is an end-to-end analytics and insights service, generating and delivering bespoke products tailored to specific requirements of customers seeking information on the mining industry, with an initial focus on the copper mining sector.

ThermCERT

Status date: 24 September 2018

Fuel poverty is an increasingly large social problem in Great Britain, as well as in the rest of Europe. Aging building stock and rising fuel prices are pushing more and more households into fuel poverty.ThermCERT presents an opportunity to reduce the complexity and time spent for identification of potential customers eligible for Energy Company Obligation (ECO) support, allowing energy suppliers to deliver their obligation more efficiently and effectively than before.

SatCBRN

Status date: 19 September 2018

SatCBRN explores the use of satellite services for surveillance and hazard management of incidents involving release of chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear threat agents.  

Assure

Status date: 17 September 2018

Assure is a system designed to alert the care community of someone suffering from social isolation
