Profumo

Status date: 16 February 2015
Profumo proposes operational weather routing services for the maritime community, based on cooperative collection of meteo-marine data from commercial vessels.
The idea is to establish a cooperative schema where meteo-marine data is collected from standard and non-standard on-board instrumentation.  Acquired data is used in the Profumo service center to provide enhanced meteo-marine forecast and nowcast capabilities on a local scale.

SARONTAR

Status date: 16 February 2015

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.

TIM

Status date: 09 February 2015

Efficient asset management is required to meet increasingly stringent demands on safety and reliable performance of new and ageing infrastructure under varying and sometimes hazardous environments.  The Transport Infrastructure Management (TIM) Service is planned as a new generation of asset monitoring services that can be deployed across multinational organizations. The concept is based on the integration of location and mapping capabilities of space assets and ground local point sensor networks - delivering data in the most efficient manner.

SaMoLoSa

Status date: 03 February 2015

The Ovinto SaMoLoSa study addresses the use of satellite technology for the reduction of transport risk, security enhancement and optimisation of logistic operations by the tracking and monitoring of extremely dangerous goods in unpowered, mobile transport units such as rail tank cars and intermodal tank containers.

CyMonS

Status date: 02 February 2015

The consortium led by surface water quality specialist BlueLeg Monitor (BLM) from Sneek, the Netherlands has executed a contract with the European Space Agency (ESA) under the Integrated Application Promotion (IAP) program to develop services for the monitoring of blue green algae or cyanobacteria under the project acronym CyMonS: cyanobacteria monitoring services. 

 

GeoNavCon

Status date: 30 January 2015

The objective of the study is the concept preparation for the development of integrated services based on satellite navigation, satellite communication and earth observation technologies to improve availability, accuracy and integrity of position determination, data communication and geo-information for users in remote and constrained environments in the forestry domain.

eHSA, Study on Sustainability, Liability & Business Aspects

Status date: 29 January 2015

Sub-Saharan Africa, characterized by its extensive rural populations with little or no access to conventional healthcare, renders eHealth a potentially effective solution for the provision of healthcare. The goal of the eHealth for Sub-Saharan Africa (eHSA) programme is the development of pan-African eHealth services, enabled by satellite telecommunications, to expand healthcare access for rural African populations.

SAFETREE

Status date: 26 January 2015

SAFETREE will provide forest fire risk assessment and airborne patrol routing for the airborne surveys. The proposed prototype of the operational monitoring system will provide objective information for the identification of areas and conditions that may lead to fire ignition.

VICOMESTRA

Status date: 26 January 2015

This project is a critical step to the introduction of HD media streaming services from mobile terminals in 2015. The solution is proposed to demonstrate dynamic video transmissions using the latest HEVC video codec running on a portable encoder combined with the latest Inmarsat BGAN HDR and GX satellite services.

iVOICE

Status date: 14 January 2015

This study evaluates improvements to existing voice analysis technology. It is coupled with high fidelity communications signal and GNSS data, aiming to detect situations of mental strain and fatigue in operators. With the aim of offering a new technology – iVOICE, integrated VOIce analysis via satellite Communications Embedded in time and safety-critical environment. It also investigates the potential to develop services linked to high-risk and high-stress environments or dislocated domains, including heavy equipment operation, ground and air transportation for private and commercial use, as well as applications for future use in distributed health care for remotely living populations and peace-keeping communication and navigation services.
