Mercury

Status date: 18 August 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.

MAPP

Status date: 18 August 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. 

Salt Water Surface Water Monitoring

Status date: 18 August 2014

BlueLeg Monitor (BLM) from the Netherlands investigates the use of its proprietary remote sensing technology for water quality monitoring in aquaculture. In particular Hazardous Algal Blooms create serious damage to aquaculture by incidentally suffocating fish and the release of toxins. This tendency is expected to increase as a result of global warming and nutrients run off into surface water, as well as by transport of invasive species of algae due to the release of untreated ballast water from ocean ships.

HV-SATPROTEC

Status date: 14 August 2014

The HV-SATPROTEC project aims at proving the technical, economic and non-economic feasibility of a future integrated system/service combining relevant space (EO, SATNAV, SATCOM) and non-space assets (UAVs and in-situ data, Weather predictions and monitoring, Data processing technologies, GIS) for applications related to electricity transport systems risk monitoring, anticipation and damage assessment.

Amazon

Status date: 13 August 2014

The objective of this project is the development and validation of a tele-assistance service, using multiple space assets, for professional clinical users in remote locations using a compact device for vital-sign monitoring and remote diagnosis. It is based on a previous ESA-backed project, which resulted in the deployment of a telemedicine system for commercial aviation applications (TEMPUS)

XcitID

Status date: 04 August 2014

The Xcit'€™ID project is dedicated to design, develop and validate a pre-operational integrated service platform aiming at significantly improving the management of the transport supply chain of temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical goods.

SafeSki

Status date: 04 August 2014

SafeSki is a feasibility study aimed at creating an innovative concept for user-friendly information services, which support the operators of ski resorts in the management while increasing safety, the portfolio of services offered to skiers, snowboarders, etc., and reducing operational costs.

VGTropics

Status date: 01 August 2014

In many African countries, livestock farming is an important source of revenue that improves the quality of life and strengthens the development of the economy. Animal health not only has an impact on animal production and its economic consequences, but zoonoses may also have an important impact on public health.  Real time surveillance and prompt actions are paramount in diminishing the impact of epizootics on livestock. For this reason, early detection and shortening the time between detection, reporting and providing measures to contain an outbreak is crucial.

AAF

Status date: 22 July 2014

Snow avalanches kill people and damage infrastructure in mountainous regions worldwide. Avalanche warning services base their products mainly on numerical weather prediction outputs, networks of automatic stations and observers in the field. Presently many European networks are not dense enough and observations by people in the field are hindered by bad weather conditions or high avalanche danger.

NAVITOUR

Status date: 21 July 2014

N@VITour project, by integrating Telecommunications, Earth Observation and Navigation satellite assets, aims to set-up a service that allows:

  • managing the resources of natural parks;
  • supporting tourists during tours in natural parks.
