Three new IAP Tenders
Issued Tenders: Closing Date 16 December 2016

Three new Invitations to Tender (ITT) have now been published.

A satellite-based wildlife monitoring tool for airports

Wildlife habitats close to airports pose a serious risk to safety at takeoff and landing. A new service using Earth Observation data enables airports to identify and manage these areas.

Coordinated support for mountain rescues

An integrated rescue management tool being developed with the support of ESA is improving the speed and accuracy of search and rescue missions in the mountains of the Czech Republic.

Satellite Services for Integrated Port Logistics Workshop
Presentations available for download

On 10th March 2016, ESA IAP in collaboration with the Transport Systems Catapult (TSC, UK) and Satellite Applications Catapult (SAC) held a Workshop on Satellite Applications for Integrated Port Logistics hosted at TSC in Milton Keynes. The workshop presentations are now available for download.

A smart system to track rainfall and flooding

With the support of ESA, HydroLogic (NL) is developing an application called the HydroNET Flood and Rain Report generator to map rainfall and flooding quickly and easily. It has been successfully deployed in flood-prone Australia, and other countries are taking interest in the system.


DATA.SPACE2017 Call For Abstracts
Deadline for submissions: 20 October 2016

DATA.SPACE2017 invites abstract submissions focused on using data derived from new space technology in response to industry and user needs from the following key areas: energy, blue economy, resilience and sustainability. The 2–day conference in Glsagow 1-2 February 2017 will provide a forum to discuss the challenges in these sectors.

Satellite Applications for the Alps
27 October 2016, Schönau am Königssee (DE)

How can satellite applications help strategic sectors like risk, logistics, transport, connectivity, tourism in the Alps? This one-day conference is co-organised by Eurisy and Satellite Navigation Berchtesgadener Land – Salzburg.

Future Opportunities for In-Orbit Demonstration
10 November 2016, Harwell Campus (UK)

The European Space Agency has published an “Announcement of Opportunity” for Pioneer, while Innovate UK has created the In-Orbit Demonstration (IOD) Programme, delivered by the Satellite Applications Catapult. Both of which aim to lower the barriers to entry and stimulate new in-orbit test missions for innovative applications and services. This workshop will tell you how demonstrate in-orbit can remove obstacles across the value chain and open up new opportunities.

Elevator Pitch Training and Pitch Events
17 November 2016, London (UK)

The SFN is a network which seeks to bring the growing satellite and space industry together with the financial community: offering opportunities for both. SFN has excellent relationships with investors who are specifically interested in space and satellite application opportunities.

We are pleased to announce the Third ARTES Applications Final Presentation Day, which will take place in ECSAT (Harwell, UK) on 17 November 2016.


Waste Management
Issued Tender

The objective of this ARTES IAP feasibility study is to develop a business case where space technologies enable services for Waste Management issues while assessing its feasibility / viability.

Big data applications to boost preparedness and response to migration
Issued Tender

The objective of the feasibility study is to carry out an analysis of the technical feasibility and commercial viability of big data processing applications in combination with space-based services in order to support the identification of migration flows, and to propose a roadmap for their implementation.

Integrated applications using ADS-B
Issued Tender

The objective of the feasibility study is to identify and characterize ADS-B based services addressing potentially interesting application domains, carry out the analysis of their technical feasibility and commercial viability, select the most promising ones for further development and exploitation, and propose a roadmap for the implementation and demonstration of the proposed services.
