EFFORS

Status date: 23 September 2014

The aim of the present feasibility study is to develop an Enhanced Flood Forecasting System for Critical Infrastructures Protection in medium size Alpine catchments.The service is designed to address infrastructure located either on the river itself (e.g. bridge) or in the flood plan (e.g. a building).

GeoSHM

Status date: 22 September 2014

GeoSHM (GNSS and Earth Observation for Structural Health Monitoring) is a Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) system that integrates GNSS and Earth Observation technologies to offer an integrated solution for the maintenance of different types of asset. 

SENSA

Status date: 22 September 2014

The SENSA project aims at a collaborative platform supporting “sustainable & responsible tourism” in protected remote areas, such as natural parks, natural reserves and historical sites.

SatResponse

Status date: 11 September 2014

The SatResponse study is investigating how new technical, commercial and operational models can be used to more effectively deliver satellite communication bandwidth and other space-based application services (eg for enhanced situational awareness) to Disaster Responders.

LeCross

Status date: 10 September 2014
The LeCross study assessed the added value and feasibility of an integrated service solution to improve safety at railway level crossings through the use of added-value space-based technologies, systems and capabilities.

METSAR

Status date: 09 September 2014

The METSAR project will investigate the feasibility of developing and demonstrating a new concept to the Search and Rescue (SAR) community.

OWASIS-UK

Status date: 08 September 2014

OWASIS – UK is a Feasibility Study aiming at developing a sustainable service line improving the monitoring of water availability, quality and distribution by integrating satellite images and innovative terrestrial sensors and information technologies.

This study focuses on the UK market and it targets all types of user groups such as industrial users, public water authorities or regulatory organisms.

SATMODO

Status date: 08 September 2014

The SATMODO project is aimed specifically at the round-wood timber harvesting market, by facilitating ”live” monitoring of harvest processes. To date the SATMODO project addressed current harvesting issues in remote areas by utilizing both cellular and satellite transmission technology as a means of providing data transmission pathways for the live harvest data from the Harvester Machine. 

Lift Off

Status date: 08 September 2014

Internet penetration growth curve is still on the steeper side: people require more and more affordable and fast connection to the Internet, independently from where they are. The key characteristics of what is expected by an Internet connection are speed, affordability and reliability. In this sense the Lift Off Project tries to bring further the innovation brought by the recent satellites investigating on how DPI (Deep Packet Inspection) can be introduced by a Satellite Service Provider. The scope of this innovative “next step” on top of the KA-SAT is to optimize the existing services and to generate innovative market offers for satellite internet connectivity maximizing the user experience while improving the ratio cost/performances.
