KABALIST

Status date: 16 May 2017

The project aims to provide reliable and efficient TV signals collection and distribution through High Throughput Satellite utilizing innovative dynamic coding, dynamic bandwidth assignment and full IP solutions. The current application scenario is Italian Lega Pro football championship played in up to 60 sites distributed all over Italy, equipped with permanent satellite uplinks. An extension to the project was granted to evaluate the possibility of using an improved version of the same system for other sport events, matching their need of a lower price for each event. 

 

STAR-FISH Feasibility Study

Status date: 11 May 2017

STAR-FISH is a management system that will automatically monitor and record fishing activity and fish discarding, in order to verify compliance with discarding regulations. The STAR-FISH service will consist of:

  • A Remote Monitoring System (RMS) (hardware and software) installed on board vessels to monitor, record, identify and transmit fish discard data 
  • On-shore software which monitors fishing and discarding data from vessels and can provide alerts to fishing regulators 
  • Interfacing with databases/platforms to support fish sustainability and traceability statistics

STEAM

Status date: 04 May 2017

The objective of this study is to investigate the technical feasibility, financial/non-financial viability and sustainability of a future service aiming at measuring the amounts of sulphur oxides components ejected by vessels travelling inside the Emission Control Areas (ECAs) as defined by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

 

agriloc

Status date: 03 May 2017

agriloc targets significant improvements in agriculture through automation. For this purpose, a thorough user survey was carried out to identify current problems and needs of farmers. Projected agriloc systems and services were then validated in a user workshop. The solutions are aimed at supporting farming processes through integration of highly accurate Guidance, Navigation, and Control, with reliable connectivity utilising telecommunication satellites and supported by new test systems and services.

 

Electronic Monitoring

Status date: 25 April 2017

Electronic Monitoring (EM) is used by several governmental bodies worldwide to enforce probation or other forms of legal liberty constraints. This Demonstration Project analyses the technical feasibility and economic viability of a next generation European EM system/service featuring advanced Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), including Galileo.

MarIA

Status date: 20 April 2017

This project has developed a cloud-based system to support more efficient management of sustainability standards in commercial fishing and processing operations. The system developed allows for the inputting of information manually into smartphones/tablets and the capture of information from sensors on-board fishing vessels (including GPS position), whilst at sea, which is sent via satellites to a central database. This database is viewable by prospective customers before the catch is landed.

Urban DRR

Status date: 18 April 2017

Applying space based solutions to save lives and critical infrastructure by reducing the risk and impact of natural disasters in urban areas.

TALED

Status date: 18 April 2017

TALED is an innovative integrated Satcom/EO/GNSS platform to cope in real-time and non-real-time with all kind of Fire incidents in outdoors: Forest fires, Waste fires and Hazmat Fires. The system will guarantee better technical and economical performances of the service. TALED will be integrated in the DSS of Campania Region, operated by SMA, the official service provider and TALED’s team partner.

M3i

Status date: 12 April 2017

M3i is an end-to-end, one-stop service that reduces the fieldwork required to gather information on critical Landscapes of Interest.  Satellite imagery, analysed in conjunction with a minimal set of ground-based data, significantly reduces the time and money required to perform surveys, and thus greatly improves the potential for all forms of land use to be incorporated into sustainable management schemes.

SnowSense DP

Status date: 05 April 2017

Provision of Snow, Run-off and Hydropower Information for Remote Areas: We are using In-Situ Snow Monitoring, Earth Observation and Model Techniques as innovative solution for the assessment of snow cover, the amount of water stored in it, it’s potential for energy production and the related risk of flood events.
