High Precision Navigation System for Trucks

Status date: 23 October 2014

The project analyses the feasibility of an assistance service for drivers of truck-trailer combinations while reverse parking. This is a challenging maneuver because of the complex dynamics and difficult tilt determination between truck and trailer. The service provides GNSS-based information about position, headings and tilt angle of trucks and trailers, steering wheel guidance and predicted trajectory visualization in images from satellites and a rear-mounted camera.

Mercury

Status date: 21 October 2014

Project Mercury aims to establish and prove the commercial viability of a new satellite based communications service that will end the isolation of Mobile Breast Screening Units deployed across the UK as part of the National Health Services (NHS) breast cancer prevention and detection programme.

VECMAP

Status date: 21 October 2014

Mosquito-borne diseases such as Malaria, Chikungunya, Dengue and West Nile fever are a persistent public health concern in many European countries. VECMAP is a service assisting national  public health agencies and regional mosquito controllers in predicting  vector-related health risks and in reducing spread of disease.

MAPP

Status date: 21 October 2014

The increase in piracy incidents in areas such as the Gulf of Aden and the Gulf of Guinea threatens life at sea and causes substantial cost to the shipping industry and governments as vessels transit through the High Risk Areas. 

ASSIST

Status date: 21 October 2014

The “Advanced Snow plough and Salt spreader based on Innovative Space Technologies“ (ASSIST) project aims to deliver a comprehensive feasibility study on the technical and economic sustainability of a winter road maintenance system based on space technologies. 

ASSIST proposes a concept developed along with the improvement and integration of two main assets: Satellite Navigation (and related augmentation systems) and Earth Observations to get additional digital information about roads and weather forecasts.

SharperSat

Status date: 20 October 2014

With the support of ESA, Finnish company Sharper Shape Ltd is developing innovative services for the improvement of maintenance and recovery of high voltage electricity transportation infrastructure using SatEO and GNSS data.

FarmingTruth

Status date: 14 October 2014

FarmingTruth is a precision agriculture service that furnishes end users (e.g. farmers, growers, agronomists, agricultural consultants, etc.) with a web-based soil and crop information system to enable the optimisation of land production for increasing yield at reduced input cost.

BIOSCOPE

Status date: 14 October 2014

BIOSCOPE investigated the technical and economical viability of a vegetation monitoring system based on the integrated use of satellites and Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS).

NG-RMP

Status date: 08 October 2014

The Next Generation Recognised Maritime Picture (NG-RMP) project aims to provide a system to the Irish Naval Services (INS) which generates an advanced Recognised Maritime Picture (RMP) using emerging Satellite Automatic Identification System (S-AIS) technology. In addition novel inputs such as CCTV and external database sources will be integrated. Data mining and advanced visualisation techniques will be applied to the gathered information for presentation to personnel within the INS HQ.

SARONTAR

Status date: 08 October 2014

The SARONTAR (Situational Awareness and Command & Control of Rescue Forces in Alpine Regions) project comprises the demonstration and pilot implementation of a satellite-based operations control system for a more effective and a more coordinated proceeding of the rescue forces in alpine rescue missions.
