Openet identified five public institutions that were involved in the pilot phase of the project and who became sponsoring partners offering evaluation for the business model. The identified institutions were the League of Autonomies (Italy), the Municipality of Bari (Italy), the Basilicata Region (Italy), the Sicily Region (Italy), and the Dâmbovita County with Valahia University in Târgovişte (Romania). Moreover, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Romania and Bucharest expressed an interest in the service platform and the business model that was validated in the project. The ADMiNiSTRA project proposed an integrated communication system allowing public administration institutions to receive the service as well as to transmit content - by satellite - towards their own local area of customers represented by sublevel structures (for example, regional offices will transmit content to municipalities). The result aimed at setting up a satellite network called "ADMiNiSTRA Business Television". ADMiNiSTRA also foresaw the transmission of e-learning sessions that can be accessed off-line by public employees, called "ADMiNiSTRA Service".

On 10 September 2016 about 2000 citizens from 22 European countries participated in the first Citizens’ Debate on Space for Europe. In the course of the day, citizens had the opportunity to learn, debate, have their say and participate by suggesting priorities on all aspects of current and future space programmes. This consultation on an unprecedented scale took place simultaneously in all 22 Member States of the European Space Agency (ESA). Missions Publiques, the company that was brought in by ESA to organise this consultation and conduct the debate, gathered approximately 100 citizens per Member State at various locations. Those selected were as representative as possible of the population of their country according to socio-demographic criteria. The results of the consultation were collated – as early as 48 hours after the debate took place – and communicated to ESA. Referring to this initiative, ESA Director General Jan Woerner, emphasised his commitment to ESA being more open to society and to further engaging in a dialogue with European citizens, and said, “Spaceflight, space science, exploration, Earth observation, telecommunication, satellite navigation, space technology and innovation can all help respond to societal challenges and be a source of inspiration to future generations. European citizens can help us better assess our priorities”. The Citizens’ Debate on Space for Europe is a major first – never before has the future of space activities been addressed in such an event held across so many countries.

The EMP project aims to establish TransparentMining, a service platform to support environmental monitoring activities in the mining sector for three main market segments: NGO, regulators and private sectors (including mining industry and consultancy companies). The platform will offer three complementary services namely to i) identify illegal ASM and anomalous land cover changes, ii) identify abandoned mines and waste repositories and monitor tailing dams stability, and iii) to provide evidence of on-going ASM activities particularly targeted to the estimation of extracted material. The service builds on the integration of Earth Observation (SAR and optical images) , RPAS and in situ data.

The SAFEDEM service platform integrates data from Earth observation satellites with high-resolution data acquired through remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) to offer a comprehensive set of products and services in support to land release process in mine action at its various levels. The SAFEDEM demonstration project is the follow-up of the SAFEDEM feasibility study which demonstrated the capability of space integrated assets to provide useful information for the demining activities confirming the potential to provide sustainable services with measurable benefits to the mine action community. The key objectives of SAFEDEM are to bring satellite technologies in the Mine Action context, where up to now they are only partially exploited; to consolidate a methodology for integration and fusion of Satellite, RPAS and land-based data aimed at providing support for land release activities; to demonstrate and deliver to the Mine Action users some well-established data processing techniques; and to set-up a set of innovative services in a coherent framework, in order to help Mine Action practitioners in their activities.

SatElectionsAfrica, Completed, ESA, ICT, Institutions, Integrated Applications Project, TIA, Africa, SDG16 Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions, PeacePeace, SDG16 Peace, Justice and Strong InstitutionsESATIAProduction and distribution via satellite of eLearning modules on Effective Electoral Assistance and Electoral Administration SatElections is a Pilot Project dedicated to the production and distribution via satellite of eLearning modules on Effective Electoral Assistance and Electoral Administration. In practical term, the broader module on Effective Electoral Assistance to be later adapted to a more specific eLearning Electoral Administration Module for the needs of the Independent Electoral Commission of the Democratic Republic of Congo (IEC-DRC). The proposed satcom based system represents the first step to validate the fulfilment of the operational communication needs required in the Congolese election process and to create an internal network for Electoral Management Bodies for the transmission of electoral data. The following objectives were pursued by the project: Production of the first ever eLearning Module on Effective Electoral Assistance This Module targeted the training of development partners and electoral management bodies in effective electoral assistance. The module is based on the content developed for the Training Session on Effective Electoral Assistance by United Nations Development Programme, European Commission and International IDEA. Such Module was then: Integrated within the SatElections Training Platform and delivered to remote terminals through the satellite communication system (Sat3Play technology and ASTRA2Connect) Adapted to be transmitted in the different platforms already available within the EC and UNDP. Creation of eLearning Modules on Electoral Administration needs for the IEC-DRC The eLearning Module on Effective Electoral Assistance was adapted for the IEC-DRC, distributed via satellite and utilised before the holding of the Congolese local elections in the end of 2008-first half 2009. Creation of an internal network for electoral data transmission needs The satcom solution provided by the project supported election data transmission for the Electoral Management Bodies in DRC. CHALLENGES Thanks to a cooperation among the Industrial Partners, the IEC as sponsoring partner and UNDP, EC, International IDEA, the project aims to: Produce the first ever eLearning modules on effective electoral assistance and electoral administration; Assess the feasibility of broadcasting the modules with appropriate, cost effective and sustainable satellite technology; Assess the feasibility of using the same satellite technology for creating internal network for Electoral Management Bodies and for their electoral data transmission. BENEFITS SatElections is to demonstrate that the system and associated services provide an effective, sustainable and scalable solution in support of African Electoral Cycles. The proposed satcom system is to be part of the activities of the EC-UNDP-IDEA led Global Training Platform on Effective Electoral Assistance and the adapted module for electoral administration will be tested in DRC to assess the applicability in other African electoral cycles.

All systems, be they established or emerging, exploit predominantly low power, spread spectrum signals (typically -130dBm at the Earth’s surface) which are susceptible to both interference (intentional or otherwise) as well as “spoofing” (the deliberate misinforming of the system). This proposal covers part of the roadmap to develop our interference protection technology into a modular, adaptable product family that provides interference immunity.
