The system was expected to be particularly relevant to some rural communities, which are suffering, when compared with urban communities, from a lack of broadband communications (the so-called digital divide). The new system provides a broadband system that is easy and quick to install. The system can be shared by end users making it cost effective. The expected benefits brought by the project are the availability of cost-effective broadband communications in small rural communities that are, and will remain, outside the reach of typical terrestrial communications networks. Further support is expected for the growing trend of knowledge-based workers migrating from the cities to the countryside, and for the regeneration of rural economies. The project also aimed to extend the range of applications and hence market for satellite technologies.

UAV and Satellite Imagery are analysed to validate certification requirements as e.g. area of farmed land versus “nature” or size of fields and plausibility of harvesting amounts. The service mainly targets farms who are Naturland certified and eco food traders who buy products from these farmers before the products are sold in the German retail market. However, the service might be of interest for all actors involved in the supply chain of natural and bio food wanting to ensure the right ecological farming with a high degree of nature conservation at the start of the supply chain and subsequently to have the right farmed eco product in the supermarket shelf. The service uses GNSS, Sentinel-1 & -2 Imagery, Plejades (50 cm resolution) and images acquired from commercially available, low-cost UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) systems. The methods compete with onsite measurements done by certifier engineers, i.e. processes which are expensive, time consuming and often difficult to realize in a statistical relevant way.

Building projects related to ICT in developing countries The Millennium Development Goals, together with the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS ) have paved the way to a number of Capacity Building (CB) projects related to ICT in developing countries. Satcom technology and knowledge can contribute to achieving education worldwide, especially in area or regions that have no or a bad infrastructure. For ESA, the CBICT study had the underlying goal to identify how to federate and catalyse a major line of actions to be undertaken with the participation of 3rd party institutions in line with the action plan proposed by the UN. The goal of this project was to define and validate a reference model for CB projects using satellite communications (Satcom). Satcom technology and knowledge can contribute to achieving education worldwide, especially in area or regions that have no or a bad infrastructure. With regard to the MDGs, Capacity Building (CB) is primarily about the empowerment of organizations and people. CB entails the strengthening of individual, organisational and institutional competencies of the local partners. It is a broad definition and in its essence, capacitating people and organisations is a component of the core strategy of empowerment of people and partner organisations. Empowering people and organisations relates to the strengthening of knowledge, skills and attitudes so that people and organisations are capable of taking their development in their own hands. In practical terms it means that at every stage of a project, people have to acquire different skills and knowledge.

satellite data to places where network connection is not effectively supported In 2001 ESA launched an innovative tool to provide satellite data to places where the network connection was not effectively supported, in a rapid and cost-effective way: the Data Dissemination System (DDS). Three uplink stations located at Kiruna (Sweden) and Esrin (Italy) together with more than 200 receiving stations between Europe and Africa constitute the ground segment facility that allows the data distribution. During its first years of operations the Data Dissemination System has transmitted Envisat data and products to users resident in European Countries. In the first months of 2011, ESA launched a new generalised service based on the DDS technology that can distribute EO data coming from almost all the satellites launched by ESA and Third Party Missions to Africa: Broadcasting Africa. In the last ten years, since the World Summit on Sustainable Development, ESA has drastically increased its efforts to help the development of the African regions. The TIGER project, on water resource management, the Maputo Declaration, that extend the GMES programme to Africa, and many Data User Elements actions have delivered precious satellite information products that offer to Africa the essential knowledge to better manage its environmental resources and to face many health and safety issues. All these ESA initiatives are part of a common strategy that foresees to address the challenge of Africa's sustainable development reinforcing space assets. Following this approach the agency decided to realise a service that helps the European Earth Observation Science community to overcome the “digital divide” barrier. The new DDS service has opened the door to a massive and more valuable use of this data dissemination system.

sub-Saharan Africa In 2019, only 28% of urban African areas and 6% of rural areas had an internet access. The ESA-supported Every Child Online partnership aims at developing new ground technologies bringing affordable and reliable satellite broadband services to schools and their local communities in sub-Saharan Africa. Source: International Telecommunication Union ITU Every Child Online, or ECO, a public-private partnership between ESA and UK satellite network operator Avanti Communications under ESA’s ARTES partner programme, is set to bring affordable and reliable Wi-Fi hotspots to low-income users in sub-Saharan Africa. While new generation satellites offer greater speed and flexibility at lower cost, ground infrastructures and satellite services in Africa have not aligned to the local market price points, stifling growth. To meet the high potential demand for sub-Saharan Africa satellite broadband, ECO aims to implement enhanced ground technologies and exploit novel service delivery methods, leveraging the latest capabilities of Avanti’s Hylas-4 telecoms satellite which will be operational by mid-2017. The programme will enable managed community internet access to be deployed both quickly and cost effectively, using a service model which supports socio-economic development within communities beyond the benefits of broadband access alone. Each ECO network point will be scalable to the demands of the local community, handling tens to hundreds of subscribers. This will be achieved by using the latest generation of Wi-Fi standards to maximize service range, minimize power consumption and deliver robust connectivity for smart phone and tablet users. The ECO satellite broadband services will benefit schools, health centres, community centres, Internet cafés and community area networks, along with governments, telecom providers, mobile network operators, Internet service providers, private network operators and local resellers. The ECO community shared access services will initially be deployed in a number of pilot sites across several countries, including rural and edge-of-urban communities, as well as in towns or suburban areas where fixed line or mobile connectivity is unavailable or unreliable. ECO services and technologies will be deployed as part of the roll out of Avanti’s services over the Hylas-4 satellite, which upon launch will offer significant additional capacity across sub-Saharan Africa. This will be in addition to the business partners who are already in place providing services from the existing Hylas-2 satellite. With ECO, Avanti is developing a range of services and capabilities, supported by two Belgian companies: satcom service provider SatADSL and technology provider Newtec. Newtec will lead the ground segment development with their enhanced Dialog platform while SatADSL will expand its current range of services in Africa using their flexible Service Delivery Platform. The ECO programme was launched in September 2016 and will continue for five years. This includes three years of evaluating pilot services for over 1400 community sites, including schools and internet cafés across six countries in Africa.

The stations gather data on the current accuracy of GPS signals and embed it in the EGNOS signal, which is uplinked to the satellites to be transmitted to users. EGNOS serves to sharpen the accuracy of GPS signals across Europe and informing users about the current reliability level of the system. Designed against global standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), EGNOS began offering its Open Service for non-safety-of-life uses in October 2009, with its Safety-of-Life Service becoming available for aircraft navigation (allowing vertical guidance for landing approaches) in March 2011.

Current clients such as ship owners and shippers use the Novacom platform in an Application Service Provider mode, just like road carriers currently do: access over the internet with the possibility to retrieve regular position information and to send in return messages to the field in real-time. However, the i4s maritime application has required a number of substantial improvements in terms of maritime maps, GIS performances, alert management, information sharing and space segment integration. Though the i4s application is at the heart of the project, the service could only be complete with a hardware terminal installed on the ship. Our primary decision was to build on the existing ARGOS beacon dedicated to piracy prevention. Yet, our strategy has always been clearly to keep the service open to the largest range of equipment: in fact, several manufacturers have proposed (and still do) SSAS equipment since 2004. As a result, we have led a trade-off study between GEO and LEO systems (Iridium, Inmarsat D+ and C) based on technical and economical criteria; we have then improved the space telecom interface in order to integrate transparently the elected terminals into the Novacom platform. In parallel, the second objective was to build a commercial offer based on the GMDSS Inmarsat C equipment existing on all ships even smaller one in order to enlarge the maritime market potential. Yet, it appeared that the process to get the ship-owner authorisation is lengthy and that technical problems linked to Inmarsat satellite handover resulted in data loss. This project item was consequently dropped. In short, the i4s SSAS service meets both requirements: help fight piracy in compliance with international regulations; provide fleet management tools.

It is the continuation of the ISABELIA feasibility study co-founded by ESA and led by VTT in 2014. The IceCast project ultimate objectives are: to create capabilities to fetch different types of data (AIS and SAT-AIS data, automatic ice thickness map generated from SAR satellite images, ice waypoints given by icebreakers); to create capabilities to analyse AIS and SAT-AIS data; to generate numerical and visual information objects from the data; and to create quick and easy ways to understand user interface. Main users of the service are vessel operators and shipping companies (cargo, passenger, icebreakers), authorities (customs, VTS centres, border guards), other logistics related companies (logistic service providers, cargo owners, and port operators). The service is technically based on the AIS system (Automated Information System) used in maritime operations. It uses SAT-AIS to significantly expand the coverage of AIS tracking. However, as AIS system is not possible without automatic information on the location and movement of the vessel, this information is made possible through GNSS. The service also exposes information that has been produced by analysing satellite radar (SAR) images, to give a graphical representation on the ice thickness in the Baltic Sea region. Finally, a further important enabler for the usage of the service is satellite based Internet connectivity as for vessels far at sea, it is the only viable option for connecting to the Internet.

The objective of INDIGO is to deliver an innovative Ground Segment solution to support and effectively exploit the benefits of the next generation of multi-beam, multi-band High Throughput Satellite (HTS) networks. With INDIGO, the global Satellite Operator, Intelsat (US), in partnership with Newtec (Belgium), the European Industrial ground segment supplier, propose to bring to the market an innovative and competitive Satcom solution based upon an evolution of the Newtec DIALOG ground segment solution. This PPP is the first of its kind, bringing together the first opportunity to partner and enter the ecosystem of a prominent global Operator and the first PPP to focus exclusively on a ground segment development activity. The 3 year contract aims to leverage the opportunity for global growth by deploying and operating a European developed ground segment within the IntelsatOne network and EpicNG global constellation of HTS satellites, offering a first mover advantage for European suppliers in an almost exclusively non-European competitive arena. The combination of a highly versatile space and ground segment with increased performance aims to lower the total cost of ownership and enable the provision of end-user services in multiple market segments not economically viable previously. To achieve this, the INDIGO activities cover the development and qualification of new key technologies, with innovations to the DIALOG modems, hubs, and network management system, offering new and improved features such as, advanced carrier management, capacity management and load sharing mechanisms, beam switching and satellite handover solutions, terminal line-up and calibration automation, as well as satellite payload configuration methodologies, all targeted at leveraging the benefits offered by multi-beam, multi-band, high capacity satellite constellations and the diverse global markets and services they aim to provide. INDIGO will offer the opportunity for all partners and European sub-system suppliers to expand their product and service portfolios within a highly competitive market, while also gaining heritage through the worldwide deployment of several commercially pre-operational pilots designed to demonstrate and validate the DIALOG innovations, and subsequently lead to full commercial service deployment by early 2018.

relevant for supporting development policies in countries including several remote and/or difficult to access areas, such as islands or mountain areas, where terrestrial communications deployment is complicated and costly. A typical example is the Balkans region and South East European/Mediterranean countries that include a large number of insular and remote mountainous small communities. In such territories and conditions, low cost and reliable satellite services/applications become a necessary tool for maintaining and improving well-being, economic activity and safety of the population. The aim of this study was to establish the specific needs of Greece, the Balkans and South East European/Mediterranean countries in advanced broadcasting and telecommunication applications/services, and to identify how these could be efficiently served by satellite communications. The Central and South East European region over which Hellas Sat operates, and where it has privileged relations via its main shareholder OTE, the incumbent Greek PTT Operator, is of particular importance presenting a number of characteristics offering opportunities for satellite services development. Satellite telecommunications have the opportunity to play a significant role in improving the current conditions.

The project aims to develop a durable smart low-cost dendrometer to measure the tree diameter and send the measurement information seamless to the Forest HQ platform where the user can interact with the forest data to estimate the forest growth and monitor crop health. This solution will reduce the cost of data collection and will result in more frequent forest measurements improving the sustainable monitoring of forest resources. The primary target users for the IoTrees solution are forest managers and forest owners. The service makes use of satellite communication systems in order to provide access to the data regardless of the location of the forest measurement plots. Moreover, the measured trees will be geo-localised ensuring that satellite and drone monitoring imagery can be coupled. This will result in improved micro and macro level analysis of the forest.

The project covered the development of a framework within which several complementary data sources could be integrated with existing farm management solutions. KORE also prepared the exploitation of free data from the Copernicus Sentinel-2 mission. This was accomplished by adding an Earth observation imagery data stream into the “EssentialsMap” service. Large variations in a field were detected automatically, prompting the agronomist to survey the field with a micro-RPAS. The resulting high resolution maps were used to give targeted crop advice or to produce variable rate applications of crop inputs including fertilisers. The KORE demonstration focused on agronomists so that the service could be refined with feedback from experts. A high-powered processing framework was vital to the development of KORE as a fully operational service. Access to large EO datasets was needed, together with bulk processing and integration with the existing web-based commercial application.

The main concern is to obtain a sufficiently high level of reliability, which can be difficult considering the relatively low production values and highly challenging space environment. To reduce costs, off-the-shelf hybrids can be used and adapted to space applications. Through the ESA Technology Research Programme (TRP), RUAG has assessed the feasibility of a low-cost European alternative to current non-European suppliers. A competitive 10W converter has been developed for standard and digital electronics. While the converter is very thin, it nevertheless accommodates many convenient features, including spacecraft protection, accurate over voltage protection, a flexible telecommand interface and so on.

In spite of the large potentials that such immersive user experience could have in the world of ICT based learning, its adoption has not yet been exploited in this sector. In addition, the existing e-learning and digital platforms show a number of limitations for the user interface, context of use, teaching and learning model as well as limitations on the content creation and distribution features. In particular, in traditional eLearning systems there is a distinct separation of roles between the domain experts (i.e. the teachers), the developers of multimedia educational content (i.e. the multimedia editors) and the learners, which results in a waterfall type of information transfer from the teachers to the learner. Due to the heavy involvement of multimedia editors in several steps of the eLearning production chain, this separation of roles makes the current production and updating of the courses often time-consuming and expensive. Being User centered, hence the name “U”, Project U has the objectives of supporting new teaching/learning methodologies for enhanced learning experiences by means of a technological platform that fills the above mentioned gaps and facilitates content distribution and user interaction. Its main pillars are touch interfaces, blended context and adaptability supporting the students in the classrooms, at home and on the move, and easiness of content creation and smart distribution/sharing features. The U project will be a platform that becomes a new channel for academic and private content providers to market and monetise their know-how.

Three large system operators explained their interest in supporting the study. Both user groups require dedicated status information of their stationary (infrastructure) and mobile (wagon) devices or waste containers. The Eureka system integrator and service provider for energy autonomous telematics units, sensors and data operation as GSOC collaborate free of charge. For use in railways or in container monitoring as it is done for recyclable waste, the M2M data to be transmitted are in the area of position / localisation, time, system status, aberrations or “anomalies” of the to be monitored device as well as of critical infrastructure that is required for e.g. seamless transport chains (e.g. bridges, railroads, etc.). An operational scenario for e.g. railway application has already been evaluated in detail within the GP-AIMS project. The most stringent user needs are global 24/7 availability and service, extremely low communication cost, very small bandwidth per sensor, extremely low available energy at the sensor device/energy-autonomous operation, able to work in harsh environmental conditions.

(https://artes-apps.esa.int/projects/satfinafrica) and SatSoHoAfrica (https://artes.esa.int/projects/satsohoafrica), SatADSL has already successfully launched several services (others are about to be demonstrated) in Africa dedicated to small to medium size companies or small sites of larger companies. The service platform of these two projects is based on the Sat3Play technology of Newtec and on the ASTRA2Connect platform of SES, both of which were originally tailored to the consumer market, and which have been successfully customised to offer an efficient and flexible solution for contended traffic and low to medium data rate in the return channel (from the remote terminals to the hub station). With SatCorpAfrica SatADSL extends its portfolio of services towards the market segment of “Professional Corporate Network” (also called Wide-Area-Network or “WAN”) with a set of attractive and flexible service offers. Targeted customers of WAN services are large and medium size enterprises operating in Africa in different business sectors, such as Oil&Gas, Construction and Media Broadcasting (e.g. local Business TV and local radio). These enterprises operate with Headquarters (HQ) in big cities and multiple subsidiary sites located in smaller cities. Thanks to the new services of SatCorpAfrica, end users have access to more cost effective technology with dedicated bandwidth at an affordable price and higher speeds in the return link. They also have access to Value-Added Services (VAS) related to the supervision of service quality and content management. They have the opportunity to have access to flexible tailor-made service/solutions that will meet both their requirements and budget. African distributors will increase their sales volumes and market share by targeting a wider range of end users with a wider range of requirements. They will have the opportunity to offer this range of services with a single service platform. The overall market of large and medium size enterprises in Sub-Saharan Africa requiring WAN services is estimated at about 400,000 corporate network sites. The addressable market of SatCorpAfrica is defined as the number of sites outside big cities not yet connected by other professional VSAT service providers, which is estimated to be in the order of about 20% of the overall market, i.e. 80,000 sites.

This segment is composed of a variety of micro-enterprises, such as farms, tourist lodges and hotels that have typically less than 10 employees, limited resources and highly variable and hardly predictable data-traffic needs, which tend to change with their seasonal activities (e.g. agricultural market and tourism seasons). In order to meet the specific SoHo community needs, SatADSL develops a set of “pay as you go” services that are volume-based, do not require monthly subscription and are not subject to any volume reset, which is instead enforced in the Business2Business (B2B) high end professional services already provided by SatADSL (for more info see SatFinAfrica project web page). SatSoHoAfrica develops and validates a set of enhancements and applications that allows SatADSL to target an addressable market of the order of 50,000 terminals in the time frame 2015-2020. The proposed activities include the adaptation and integration of management features enabling an effective and low cost “pay as you go” modality for a large number of users and terminals, covering accounting, fault monitoring and help desk, customisable front end, and the inclusion of a protected transmission modality to accommodate security type applications (such as alarms, useful to remote farmers that are often assaulted by burglars). The SoHo services are to be sold via several local African distributors who re-sell the service to their final SoHo customers, on behalf of SatADSL as currently already done in the offered B2B services. Beside the Ku-band Newtec Sat3Play platform already used by SatADSL, the proposed project integrates and validates a Ka-band Sat3Play platform using the multi-beam payload of Avanti HYLAS 2 deployed over Sub-Saharan Africa.

Worldwide, there are three major manufacturers of space solar cells based on III-V semiconductors, with Europe’s Azur Space GmbH in competition with the US Emcore and Spectrolab. The development process involves improvements and fine-tuning of the structure, which lasts more than 10 years. The maximum practically achievable efficiency for space is 30% at the beginning of life and 25% at end of life. In 2003 Fraunhofer ISE and RWE SSP realised the first generation of fully European triple-junction space solar cells in the RWE-27% class, with a second generation RWE-28% following in 2009 being employed by missions including Alphabus and Galileo. The current third generation RWE-30% class represents the final stage of lattice-matched triple junction solar cell technology. The next generation will target cost and mass reduction, and push efficiency up to 33%, with new technologies under study including lattice-matching on germanium, lattice mis-matching, quantum cells and thin cells.

This allows manufacturers to reduce warranty costs by proactively eliminating potential sources of problems and identifying invalid warranty claims, and to create new revenue channels by reselling the predictive analysis service to fleet operators and distributors, and deliver more value to  fleet operators who are able to do their maintenance more efficiently, reduce costs related to maintenance services, vehicle parts and resources allocation, and reduce forced downtime resulting of vehicles breakdown, by acting upon Stratio Platform Alerts and Default Trouble Codes reporting. The use of the Galileo navigation satellite system by Stratio’s Databox allows an improvement of the resolution from 30 meters to 1 meter compared to the use of the GPS module only. Moreover, the time of cold fix (i.e., correcting the position of the vehicle for the first time) is reduced from 2 minutes approximately to 15 seconds. Finally the use of Galileo is allowing our device to increase coverage within cities near tall buildings and zones that are densely arborized. Besides vehicle sensor data, Stratio Artificial Intelligence algorithms for fault and root cause detection are dependent on external enrichers, such as location, altitude, sloping, road temperature, among others. Most external enrichers are collected from third-party services through APIs, based on a provided geolocation other, such as road slope can be obtained by using GNSS. EGNOS and Galileo also fulfil Stratio’s needs by reducing signal error, significantly reduce the fix time in all conditions, cold, warm or hot start.

It mainly targets users within coastal zones such as MPAs management organisations and authorities. As vessel localisation is fundamental for the monitoring and control of MPA, the service makes use of AIS and GNSS positions provided by the location-based services to tourists, charter companies, and fisheries. Sympa also offers an innovative service to assess the quality of sea water. This is performed by integrating high resolution satellite images coming from Copernicus with ad hoc biogeochemical models.

As the expansion of the horticultural industry combined with climate change makes irrigation management and scheduling increasingly challenging to feed a growing population, the project provides reliable summer rainfall insights to inform decisions to mitigate potential crop losses and reduce food waste. It aims at improving in land-use efficiency and competitiveness for the horticultural industry, at lowering dependency on fresh produce imports, and at reducing food waste in the field, together with the UK's contribution to climate change. Main users are large-scale growers notably within the salad and potato industries. The summer rainfall system mainly exploits ECMWF Re-Analyses data (ERA-40, ERA-interim and ERA-5) and EC Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) seasonal forecast model data in order to improve the accuracy of UK seasonal rainfall prediction.

Agriculture is a very special market as all professionals are in principle entrepreneurs. Increased awareness, exchange between regional initiatives, stimulated bottom-up innovation and expressed user requirements provide ground for science and technology R&D to strive for excellence. Precision Agriculture in the ‘European Way’ is different from American or Australian precision agriculture. The former is more aiming at costs- and input-reduction. In this way Precision Agriculture is a key enabler of a more sustainable agriculture – meaning economical viable, socially acceptable and environmental friendly. By improving the adoption of GNSS-based applications and services in the broad diversity of European farmers, innovations that could also be competitive in other strong agricultural economies as Brazil, India, or China, are created. UNIFARM focuses on the requirements and needs of the majority of farmers, today and in the next ten years, aiming at bridging the gap between early adopters and the majority. This forum’s goal is to coordinate and support existing European local initiatives and create a platform of knowledge sharing and innovation stimulation across Europe (and beyond if needed).

Rwanda’s high-quality coffee is one of the country’s most important crops. More than half of Rwanda’s export earnings rely on coffee and tea, with coffee exports alone worth more than $60 million. However, changes in rainfall can devastate crops by promoting ‘coffee rust’. In Guatemala, 70% of the plants were affected in 2013 and the damage could be even more serious this year. The life cycle of the disease is up to ten years – but experts can bring the plants back to a healthy condition in two to three years. That is exactly the targeted support provided by WeatherSafe. They developed an app that provides recommendations to coffee farmers based on local weather conditions.” Using ‘big data architecture’ researched by ESA to handle datasets so large that they are difficult to process using traditional applications, WeatherSafe developed that initial concept into a set of products for different players in the coffee chain: farmers, processors, exporters and government agricultural departments. These hyper-local forecasts can alert farmers to rain changes and any diseases that might occur. With the support of ESA’s Business Incubation Centre in Harwell, UK, and the Agency's Technology Transfer Programme, the company has developed three products generated by software that compiles multiple data sources. For example, satellite data are complemented by specific expertise from universities and research organisations, and data directly retrieved locally from the targeted farms. The WeatherSafe Coffee Farmer Edition app takes advantage of the strong mobile phone networks in many developing countries. It delivers up-to-date, highly targeted and critical information and advice straight into the hands of the farmers. Thanks to the outstanding quality of its coffee and the size of the country, Rwanda is perfect for applying this technology. The hyper-local forecast can be tailored to each farmer to help them make the best decisions at the right time for their specific location and environmental conditions. Increasing the crop yields will help coffee farming in Rwanda to become more sustainable, enabling them to move from subsistence farming, where crops are grown for survival, to more profitable and sustainable business farming.
