The ESA-backed 3InSat project aims to develop and validate a new satellite-based platform to be integrated into a European Rail Traffic Management System to prevent accidents due to human errors and increase railway safety. Source: Eurostat Modern railway signalling systems play a major role in providing safety networks to prevent accidents due to human errors. Furthermore, railways traffic management systems improve the utilisation of scarce and expensive resources like the railways infrastructure. One of the major breakthroughs has been the introduction of an interoperable European standard known as the European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS), which not only allows speed limits to be transmitted to the driver, but can also continuously monitor the driver's response to this information. An on-board computer effectively compares the speed of the train with the maximum permitted speed and automatically applies the train's braking, if the limit is exceeded. The wider implementation of the ERTMS requires significant investments in ground infrastructure (used for both positioning and telecommunication purposes). So far, high speed lines and international freight transport lines have been the primary target for these systems, which are implemented using infrastructure deployed along the rail tracks (e.g. balises (electronic beacons), track circuits, cablings, GSM-R network) that are expensive to procure, install and maintain. Such highly expensive infrastructure has so far prevented the adoption of advanced train traffic management systems in regional and remote railways lines, where traffic levels are typically low. Both railways and train operators are interested in the introduction of advanced safety systems along this type of lines, which therefore still represents an untapped market. A promising way to reduce the costs associated with the implementation and maintenance of ERMTS compatible solutions is to reduce the extent of deployment of the track side infrastructure using SatNav and SatCom to complement or replace the ground-based infrastructure. 3InSat is a project that aimed to develop and validate a new satellite-based platform to be integrated into an ERTMS system. This satellite supported solution is not yet available on the market because of the very challenging safety requirements (Safety Integrity Level 4 SIL4 requirement) that a railway signalling system needs to comply with. A validation campaign is planned on a specific test site to be carried out in Sardinia on a 50-km stretch.

The project focused on the development of a grey water recycling system, called "AIGANOVA". Sherpa Engineering contributed in the design of control systems in three areas: 1) The system approach that includes representation of the steering system and operating system 2) the model-predictive control and energy management 3) the modeling and simulation of a closed-loop system. A study at the Balneotherapy center (a hotel for 240 guests) demonstrated an overall annual gain (including maintenance and repair) of about EUR 80,000 and a return on investment of seven years, with an average grey water recycling rate of about 60%. Societal challenge AIGANOVA addressed two major societal concerns: water consumption and energy use in recycling. AIGANOVA demonstrated the possibility to reduce external water resources by 50-80%. Also heat can be recovered from recycled water, this reduces the operating cost by a factor 3. MELiSSA expertise The water treatment unit built for AIGANOVA was based on MELiSSA expertise from the Antarctic research station "Concordia".

Researchers all over the world work together in their quest for fundamental knowledge e.g. on our origins, the evolution of our environment and all aspects affecting our quality of life. They also investigate the technology that will help us shape our future. Space is also a world-wide enterprise with a global reach. At the European Space Agency, a 20-country multinational organisation, the thrill of people of all backgrounds and nationalities working together is a usual element in every project that is undertaken. ESA has built its success on such multinational environment in the last four decades. The Agency enables its member countries to work as partners, for them to develop programmes of interest to all of them. Beyond its member states, ESA also interfaces with international partners in order to carry out joint space missions, instrument collaborations, joint operations and data analysis. ESA extends this cultural exchange to space R&D work by supporting cooperation between research groups in Europe and those based elsewhere, in study areas of mutual benefit. A number of ESA programmes participate and provide opportunities for such cooperation. The need for this facilitation has motivated the creation of ESA's Alcantara (القنطرة,"bridge" in arabic) initiative: a dedicated instrument to support research promotion that recognises the critical role in such effort of leading academic institutions inside and outside Europe. The initiative acknowledges the constraints and challenges that these entities often face in terms of e.g. administrative resources, and builds on previous successful ESA experiences. Alcantara is implemented within the ESA General Studies Programme (GSP) (http://www.esa.int/gsp) and provides access to partnership opportunities within ESA's scientific and application programmes. Earth observation and satellite navigation were the first programmes within ESA to particpate. The Earth observation programme has a long tradition of research partnerships e.g., through its TIGER initiative for water resource management, and the satellite navigation programme, already has research partners from all over the world, especially from regions of interest to study the propagation of satellite signals (e.g. the equatorial regions). The GSP main role in this domain is to carry out preparatory analyses, as it does routinely to help lay the groundwork for the Agency's future activities. The assessment studies undertaken by the GSP provide ESA and its member states with the necessary information on which to base their decisions about the implementation of new programmes and the future direction of space activities.

Among these potential safety threats are the airport surroundings, which airport management is obliged to survey and manage to secure safe takeoff and landing. There are many different approaches to handle the surveying obligations of the airport surroundings. The commonality for all current approaches is that they are man-hour intensive, handled in standalone systems, and often demand specialised human resources. Expenses arising from dealing with breaches of limitation surfaces and wildlife management are significant in this context. Particularly the regional and small airports struggle with these responsibilities due to a lack of resources. Large airports allocate greater resources to ensure compliance with these issues. The AMMO service offered analysis of Earth observation data for monitoring of the airport surroundings in terms of safety, and combined it with a cloud and browser-based management system. Aeronautical information can be combined with metadata including audit trail and permission handling for documentation of compliance of all activities in the areas. Ascend, who developed AMMO, provides two distinct services that fits all types and sizes of airports, and excels by being cost-efficient. Last but not least, they do not require specialised human resources to be operated, which is a very important factor for wide acceptance throughout the global airport industry.

While AIS was not originally designed for detection from space, there is an identified need to develop a global maritime surveillance and security capability. An ESA Technology Research Programme (TRP) study by the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment (FFI), KDA and Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd considered the feasibility of space-based AIS detection to monitor global ship traffic. The study has resulted in a follow-on In-Orbit Demonstration hosted aboard Columbus on the ISS, with one receiver from FFI and Kongsberg and one receiver from Luxembourg-based Luxspace. In addition, the requirements and the concept design of the TRP activity stemmed the development of a space-based AIS on-board receiver funded under the ESA GSTP programme where more advanced algorithms for AIS message detection that was originally developed internally at ESA has been further investigated and implemented. In early 2012, a Norwegian consortium led by FFI successfully upgraded the detection algorithm used in the AIS receiver hosted aboard of Columbus and demonstrated a significant improvement in vessel detection. This work has inspired ESA Telecom’s follow-on SAT-AIS activity.

The objective is to develop a prototype and license the technology to an industrial partner. Annually an estimated 12 billion tons of ballast water is transported around the world by sea-going vessels. This ballast water is loaded in ports, rivers and seas and discharged elsewhere in the world. With the ballast water, sediment and a large variety of organisms are taken in and discharged in places outside their natural environments. This includes flora, fauna, bacteria and infectious organisms. These organisms can cause great damage to the environment, health and economy, and ballast water is seen as one of the greatest environmental challenges of maritime shipping. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) developed regulation in 2004 to address this issue, requiring all ships to purify ballast water before discharging it. A water treatment unit developed by the MELiSSA consortium could help solving this issue.

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.

Source: WHO The Nedlaw Living Walls Biofilter was the result of approximately 20 years of research at the University of Guelph. This research started at the Canada Life Environmental Room at the Toronto head office of the Canada Life Assurance. The biofilter appears to be a vertical hydroponic wall with a wide range of tropical foliage. The plant-filled wall is actually a mechanical system integrated into the air control system for the building. Air is actively forced through the wall, where air pollutants like formaldehyde and benzene are biologically degraded into their benign constituents of water and carbon dioxide. The clean air is then distributed throughout the space.

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.

Forest monitoring is crucial for REDD+ to detect illegal logging and observe forest quality. However, monitoring the forest from the ground is time consuming and it is often difficult to cover larger areas, especially in places where there is a shortage of infrastructure and data. Organisations struggle with monitoring their REDD+ projects and often lack key information about the area of interest which is needed to implement the project successfully. We help those organizations with monitoring and increasing the effectiveness of their projects. Next to REDD+ projects, our technology can also be used for related purposes, such as the detection of (illegal) mining activities and crop monitoring. All organisations that are active in the field of forest monitoring and/or REDD+ can benefit from these services, both public and private. Some organisations have their own remote sensing capability, whereas other organisations have not used satellite imagery before. The REDD+ services are customisable, and the approach is adapted to the specific needs of the customer. BlackShore has developed an award winning technology to transform satellite imagery into maps through the use of crowdsourcing methods with the goal to benefit society and science. The technology has the capability to generate maps faster and more thorough than experts. The crowd is provided with mandatory educational (e-learning) and motivational gaming elements. This technology is also used for the forest monitoring services. Near-real time and historical satellite imagery is acquired that provides the basis for the maps. The images are analysed by the crowd, which consists of thousands of enthusiastic volunteers. The only thing they need to start mapping is an internet connection. The gaming elements ensure that the mapping process is not only useful but also fun for the crowd! The combination of open satellite imagery, crowdsourcing and serious gaming provides high quality and cost effective results which offers a valuable contribution to the realization of REDD+.

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”.

Through its Clean Space initiative, ESA is pioneering an eco-friendly approach to space activities. On the ground, that means adopting greener industrial materials, processes and technologies. In space, it means preserving Earth’s orbital environment as a safe zone, free of debris. In the modern world, the quest to be environmentally friendly has been transforming the competitive landscape, as eco-friendly design turns into a new frontier of innovation. ESA is embracing this trend. Information on the environmental impact of Agency activities is, and will be, increasingly requested by ESA’s industrial, institutional and international partners, under pressure from customers, stakeholders and citizens. Numerous analyses worldwide have shown the need for space debris removal, to contend with the proliferation of space debris. The only way to preserve key orbits for future use is to shrink the current amount of debris in absolute terms, which will require novel technologies and approaches for the removal of debris and the design of non-debris creating missions. There is also substantial industrial potential: companies and organisations that take swift action towards meeting emerging regulations will obtain the competitive advantage of being first into the market. By fostering innovation, Clean Space aims to turn environmental challenges into opportunities for European space industry, to ensure a safer and cleaner environment both on Earth and in space.

The scope in this new project was to develop a body-worn antenna, suitable to be integrated into a life vest platform together with a commercial Cospas-Sarsat distress transmitter. As a result, a functional demonstrator has been achieved. The project work contains complete antenna design flow, from substrate material selection and characterisation to actual design implementation, integration and verification. The resulting demonstrator system is capable of operating as a distress transmitter system in close proximity of the human body as part of life vests. Imagine the following situation: a shipwreck victim has fallen into sea and activated the distress transmitter. Depending on the health status, the victim may try to save energy as much as possible by floating in a still position (left picture) or try to reach dry land / dry floating platform by swimming (right picture) Depending on the user position, one of the antenna elements is under water. The connection with the Cospas-Sarsat satellite is lost when antenna is under water. Therefore, the project objective is also to consider methods (number of elements / antenna placement / antenna control) to ensure that the satellite connection can be maintained despite the predicted user movement. Finally, the ultimate goal is to demonstrate full compliance in a simulated distress situation. Project output in hardware point of view is a functional system demonstrator, which is tested in the abovementioned real life simulated distress situation.

The growing awareness of urban trees as a resource that should be managed and maintained has led to increasing efforts to monitor them. Critical to this is the availability of adequate inventory data. Our services provide a platform for the creation and continuous improvement of datasets as well as driving public participation in the effort. The inclusion and support of local communities is significant as public engagement is recognised as being of key importance in the success of effective urban tree management programmes. Previous efforts to automate the collection of information on urban tree stock have focused only on the use of canopy models applied to Earth observation imagery. In order to improve on this, we combine active learning algorithms with automated tree identification models in order to direct crowdsource users to the areas where data is uncertain. Datasets can be analysed through a dedicated hosting and analytics platform that supports open data knowledge sharing.

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.

Those activities are coordinated through the Space Avionics Open Interface Architecture (SAVOIR) initiative with a strong support from major stakeholders. For instance, Astrium France’s Spacecraft Controller On a Chip combines all spacecraft computer elements on a single chip, embedding SpaceWire. Sweden-based Aeroflex Gaisler’s LEON family of microprocessors is highly configurable, supporting system-on-chip applications. The LEON FT-3 incorporates single event upset detection and correction. It is currently being exported to US customers. ESA is also working with ST Microelectronics in France on future 65 nm scale chip fabrication (see ECI-TnD section). Reducing the footprint of chips in turn cuts the mass, power and size of their electronic boards, making a significant contribution to European competitiveness.

ESA’s materials solidification research carried out on the ISS and using sounding rockets is helping in the development of new knowledge-based casting methods for industrial aluminium alloys, which are being developed to reduce the occurrence of structural defects, thus helping to reduce the size of vehicle engines and improving efficiency as well as reliability. This research therefore not only has a positive economical influence within such industries, it also has a positive environmental influence with reduced fuel consumption and hence emissions. Numerical models that lie at the heart of these new methods rely on input parameters coming from ESA research. Parameters that cannot be accurately measured on Earth. Some thermophysical properties of high temperature metallic melts can be measured using the electromagnetic levitator, while solidification features and the dynamics of their formation can be obtained in both the electromagnetic levitator and the materials science laboratory, both of which are on the ISS. Sounding rockets tests complement these when it comes to more “difficult” alloys. These tests have been providing the fundamental information needed to accelerate the rate of innovation in manufacturing and materials engineering through computer simulations. The future use of X-ray radiography technologies on the ISS to observe the dynamics of microstructure formation in industrial alloys will even further extend the potential in this area of research as will experiments using the transparent alloys instrument. ESA has numerous industrial partners within this research (Innoval Tech., Arcelor-Mittal, Transvalor, InduSteel, AscoMetal, Aperam Alloys Imphy, Evraz, Alcoa Köfem Lt, Inotal, Nmeak, Hydro-Aluminium, Incaal, Schwemetall, Wieland, KME, DKI, Equispheres, RGS, VDM Metals, Areva, PX-Services, TATA Steel, Zollern, Netzsch, CSM). Modelling casting processes, and measuring properties of several industrially relevant alloys, will ‘bulk’ material features and related properties to be predicted. Snecma is also participating in a project aiming to understand and control how TiAl-based turbine blades can be reliably produced with superior properties in terms of strength and heat resistance, allowing significant reductions in fuel consumptions of future aircraft. The general belief is that a breakthrough is possible and that space measurements will have contributed importantly to that. Similar advantages are also expected for other segments, all leading to higher performance and process reliability (lower scrap rate), less energy consuming production and mobility. In addition to casting processes other potential applications include metallic glass production, 3D printing, spray forming and powder production.

The main issue with the dangerous goods transports in the medical sector is that they are often not carried out according to the legal requirements. DG-Trac allows the tracking and tracing of these goods and introduces a centralised mechanism for the management and (controlled) distribution of information concerning each transport. Thanks to the European eCall, in case of an accident, the emergency service will automatically be alerted and informed about the involved dangerous goods and how to handle them. The main objectives of the DG-Trac feasibility study were to identify the stakeholders and user needs, to involve users from the medical and pharmaceutical sector as well as emergency services, and to design a system and service architecture based on the user needs and requirements taking into account the added value of the use of satellite navigation and satellite communication services. Viability studies were carried out to evaluate the economic and non-economic aspects of the proposed service(s) and the related system design and a proof-of-concept showed the principle implementation of such a service and demonstrated its technical feasibility. A roadmap was designed based on the results of the viability analysis and the proof of concept, which showed how a sustainable service for the tracking and tracing of dangerous medical goods could be established.

As soon as humans leave the protective shield formed by Earth’s atmosphere, space radiation becomes a serious concern. DOSIS-3D helps to understand space radiation and how it penetrates the Space Station walls. Active and passive radiation detectors are used to map radiation in all modules. The European Columbus laboratory is monitored by 11 passive dosimeters. The dosimeters are about the size of a pack of playing cards and attached to the walls of Columbus with Velcro. The detectors record how much radiation has been absorbed in total during the period they are in space. This experiment has been monitoring radiation levels for a number of years and after each six-month crew rotation, the detectors are replaced to record changes in radiation. Alexander Gerst removed the old set of dosimeters from Columbus, packed them for return to Earth, and stuck a new set to the walls. In addition to the passive detectors, DOSIS-3D uses active dosimeters that measure fluctuations in radiation levels over time. Data from all Station partners is shared to create as complete a picture of space radiation as possible. Title - URLDOSIS 3DExperimentThursday, 8 March, 2018 - 19:40viewGlobal

One of the keys to accurately measure global economic growth is the precision and fineness of measures for developing countries, which are difficult for two reasons: The reliability and quality of official data cannot be guaranteed and episodes of high volatility and higher growth rates creates further variations in the measured growth rates. The added value of the solution lies in its ability to analyze and cross different types of data sources to obtain the best possible precision on economic growth prediction. To achieve this, the project aims to add to the existing product 'Global Macro Smart Data' a significant added value layer through the analysis of satellite data, allowing to provide a granular vision of the activity of each sector of the economy. It would provide an excellent view of economic activity within a region or country compared to the current solution based on the analysis of multiple data sources including social networks, traffic data maritime, real-time job offer data, meteorological and oceanographic data, consumer reviews and more.

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.

At that point the liquid condenses so the process can repeat itself. EHP is attempting a transfer of this technology to the aeronautical, defence and broader terrestrial markets, enabling the development of more powerful electronic systems better able to handle waste heat. The technology is based in two-phase capillary pump loops and constant or variable conductance heat pipes, with fixed or deployable radiators.

EPAS specialises in the treatment of wastewater and provides process and technical advice to industries all over the world covering a wide range of technologies, including microbiological and physico-chemical treatments. Water scarcity arising from increased demand for and depletion and pollution of fresh water resources is a critical problem. The increase in population, consumption and desire for better living has placed enormous pressure on a continual supply of fresh water. It is estimated that global water consumption will double every 20 years. It is vital that we begin to use the available water resources in an efficient way. Membrane filtration technologies offer a sustainable solution to offset freshwater usage. MELiSSA expertise The expertise of EPAS originated during the development of MELiSSA's grey and black water treatment units (compartments I and III technology). The Grey Water Treatment Unit is a membrane-based filtration system that treats contaminated water and removes unwanted particles and microorganisms (bacteria and viruses). Common sources of grey water include showers, cooking, air dehumidifiers, washing machines and dishwashers. The system employs three membrane separation units: nano-filtration and two stages of reverse osmosis. The Black Water Treatment Unit is designed to treat and degrade organic waste material such as fecal matter, toilet paper, kitchen waste, and urine. These materials are broken down into smaller components using a microbiological approach that occurs in three stages. Further processing of the decomposed material enables recovery of nutrients and reclamation of wastewater.

To find a balance between economic increase, resource consumption and destruction, nature and social developments, a future sustainable development strategy is required. If a change in perceptions and behaviours shall be achieved, then these have to be tackled by experience, learning and life. The EPO Earth Guardian activity aimed to introduce concepts of environmental observation, realisation of increasing problems and the opportunity of protecting. The education support team to the EPO Earth Guardian was a joint endeavour between the German Aerospace Center (DLR), German schools, German universities and ESA´s Human Spaceflight directorate education team. The in-flight experiment had a very strong connection with the ground activities during the mission. To do this material on ISS/Gerst (pictures, Videos, LiveCalls) were made available for use in schools; project work in teams was developed with respect to different aspects of the subject; learning by doing was encouraged with practical and real examples, and the pupils were stimulated to develop awareness and importance of attitudes and values.

At primary and secondary level, the Education Programme offers classroom resources and teacher's training sessions. Particularly, since 2006, in close collaboration with the national institutions in charge of formal education and managed by renowned experts and operators well integrated into the respective national education systems and networks, the European Space Education Resource Office project (ESERO) has essentially offered training opportunities to thousands of teachers completed by the development, production, promotion and distribution of space-related resources tailored to the national curricula. At university level, the ESA Academy provides students across Europe with complementary academic training in areas of ESA’s expertise and with unique hands-on opportunities to gain significant practical experience during the full lifecycle of real and challenging space projects. As such, educational projects like CubeSats for example are exemplary evidences to show what can be achieved in support of Europe’s need to inspire, engage and prepare students to undertake scientific and technical careers and to eventually better face the labour market.

The objective of EcoDesign is to reduce the environmental impacts of the space sector by developing green technologies, and applying LCA to space mission design. Increasingly, LCA has become one of the core elements of environmental policy around the world. The two main ISO standards covering LCA are ISO 14040 and ISO 14044, outlining its principles, framework, requirements, and guidelines. However, special adaptations were required to apply this methodology to space. ESA has pioneered the analysis and reduction of environmental impacts within the space sector, and this methodology was captured in an ESA LCA Handbook, which was published in 2017. Dedicated studies were also performed which resulted in space-specific LCA datasets which were compiled in an ESA LCA Database (DB). This allowed ESA to identify some preliminary environmental impacts in terms of various environmental indicators. In the past years, ESA has also included environmental requirements in projects such as Copernicus, Ariane 6, and Galileo. This framework aims to guide and enable the European space industry in applying LCA to their projects. The LCA DB and handbook are constantly being updated and improved, with several on-going studies attempting to quantify the impacts of spacecraft, launchers, propellants, space debris, and more.   CleanSpace, Environment, Life Cycle Assessment, SustainabilityTitle - URLAnalysis & FrameworkOngoingcleanspace@esa.intDeloitte Sustainablility https://www2.deloitte.com/nl/nl/pages/risk/topics/sustainability.html/?icid=nav2_sustainability Vito https://vito.be/enMonday, 25 January, 2021 - 14:36view

I had suitable things for every part of my body, except my legs.” The realisation triggered a decade-long quest to find a fabric that combines the comfort and breathability of denim with the strength and abrasion resistance of protective gear like motorcycle leathers. It ultimately led him to the founding of ESquad, a fashion label devoted to ultra-durable motorcycle jeans.

A robot building on ESA’s ExoMars rover is bidding to win a place on oil and gas production rigs around the world, to work in remote and hazardous environments. This robot, developed by a team led by Spain’s GMV, is competing in the Total oil and gas company’s Autonomous Robot for Gas and Oil Sites (Argos) Challenge. The three-year competition is encouraging the creation of robots to work on hydrocarbon production sites in extreme conditions. Total envisages that autonomous robots will in future strengthen operators' safety by performing routine, repetitive tasks such as inspections, as well as detecting anomalies, alerting operators and intervening in emergencies. GMV’s Foxiris consortium was one of five teams chosen in 2014 as a competitor. “We want the robot to be able to move anywhere on a production facility that a human can go today,” explained Kris Kydd, Total’s Argos project manager from the company's Exploration & Production R&D Department. “Then, using artificial intelligence, we want the robots to be able to read and record the values on the instrumentation, and to know autonomously whether they are normal or not. If there is an abnormal situation, the robot has to alert the remote operator.” The robots must pass three sets of tests at a plant in Lacq, France, the first of which took place in June. The gas dehydration unit features stairs, narrow walkways and obstacles typical of those found in production plants. Following the first set of five days’ intensive and challenging tests, the Argos jury commented, “Foxiris distinguished itself by its exceptional endurance.” The Foxiris robot is based on a commercially available design from GMV’s partner IdMind. GMV is using its knowledge of mobile space platforms to develop the end-to-end control and operation software. The third partner is the robotics academic centre at Universidad Politécnica do Madrid. Foxiris carries internal navigation sensors and scientific instruments including cameras, thermal imagers, gas sensors and microphones. These allow it to inspect and monitor pressure dials, valves and level gauges, detect hot surfaces, sound alarms and localise gas leaks.

Hugh and his partner Jolyon Tidmarsh are now hosted at ESA’s Business Incubation Centre in Harwell, UK, while they turn the invention into a commercial business. Originally designed to fly on future Mars probes, this little device is so sturdy it can withstand some of the harshest conditions on Earth, making it ideal for measuring air quality and roadside vehicle emissions, detecting gas leaks and monitoring industrial chemical processes. Its size makes it especially suited to fly on aerial drones for mapping the ground below or monitoring colour variations in crops for more efficient use of pesticides and fertilisers.

This was achieved by utilising the Sky Digital TV platform to deliver the service as an interactive television (iTV) application. Access to the service was initially limited to a small group of pilot users, with the aim of evaluating the technical and financial feasibility of such a service. The HPS in Home service planned ultimately to meet many of the continuing medical education needs of healthcare professionals and to provide both future proofing and product evolution for further application developments. The HPS in Home interactive television service was delivered to the television sets of medical professionals via the Sky digital television system. Access to the service was controlled via the conditional access systems built into the standard digital set top box (STB) deployed in the UK. The marriage of a well known and easily accessible delivery mechanism (i.e. consumer based television equipment) with professional training material and information broadcasting services provides a rapid and cost effective means of connecting medical general practitioners with the pharmaceutical industry and other service providers in the sector.

In the first service, Spire will provide high density, near real-time ionosphere scintillation data to GNSS service providers thereby enabling a software-based rather than hardware-based solution to location correction that provides improved accuracy and reliability at a lower cost of service. The data service will be made available via a customer API at 15-minute intervals. The second one is related to Earthquake prediction. Studies have shown that specific ionosphere activity signals earthquake precursors a few days ahead of earthquakes. However, due to a sparse number of satellites - one would need 100 satellites - not enough ionosphere data has been available to date to definitively build such a product, test, and refine it. The HRIDE data service would be a first of its kind service that will enable public sector warnings, first responder activation, and critical infrastructure (telecommunication, water, power) preparedness. Customers have been identified for both services. The customers of the GNSS correction service will be GNSS service providers, either brand-name existing players (e.g. Novatel or Trimble) or new market entrants such as Bosch and Swift Navigation. While GNSS service providers will be the customer for Spire, end users will be in the high precision GNSS market such as Agriculture or the Mass Market Road Segment.  Disaster risk management, Earthquake, InfrastructureTitle - URLDemonstration ProjectCompletedLaurence DuquerroySpire Global UK https://spire.com/earth-intelligence-data/Thursday, 6 May, 2021 - 12:07viewGlobal

The EV owners will be then allowed to trade the stored energy and therefore participate in the Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) market. To trade this energy load, the EV owners must commit to the load under management of the Energy Service provider, ie National Grid. At the end of the trade, the Service provider will pay back to the participating users the agreed financial amount. Human Switch provides an end to end application from vehicle management and owner interface through to energy network that will allow the trading of the stored energy. Building up a statistical risk profile that can inform trading strategies is central to the system. A central component of this risk strategy relates to data regarding the movement patterns of drivers in relation to their Electric Vehicles. When combined with other data inputs, a reliability index and user profile can be established across complex combinations of aggregated energy loads. The users of Human Switch service are the owners of Electric Vehicles in the domestic, business and public sectors.

The two HV-SATPROTEC services which are based on the integration of different space and non-space assets, provide users at lower costs with systematic and timely information on the state of the infrastructures and on potential threats in their surroundings. These services support a more cost-efficient planning of necessary maintenance tasks, anticipate risks threatening overhead power lines and improve the overall safety of monitoring operations within transmission corridors. This helps to reduce the risk of power outages and to decrease the related high maintenance/recovery operation costs. More precisely, the expected benefits for the two services are an early detection of potential or actual threats, more systematic and reliable information on threats to reduce fault risks and the associated downtime costs; more accurate information for a better planning of pruning operations; and reduced monitoring and maintenance costs. In terms of infrastructure integrity accurate information was provided for a better planning of infrastructure repairs, systematic information on infrastructure integrity was provided to reduce risk of faults and safety was increased thanks to the reduction of climbers’ inspections or helicopter flights.

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.

By investigating critical risk use cases concerning technological hazards in Belgium and food security in Senegal, the study aims to demonstrate that a “global” approach brings significant benefits, compared to traditional segmented approaches that impede the construction of viable business models. The Study has selected two different risk scenarios in two continents. The first scenario concerns Belgium, where, for centuries, industrial activities have developed in the middle of a dense population, raising critical concern about the risks for the citizens, e.g. accidents in a factory, ground instability caused by ancient mining and quarry activities. The second scenario addresses the tremendous challenge that low agricultural productivity and risks on the yield (weather, pest, losses) put, in Senegalese municipalities, on the local authorities, who often lack of reliable local information for anticipation and decision-making. Targeted users’ communities: local authorities (municipalities), the regional and national institutions in charge of risk prevention, mitigation and intervention, and the first responders of the Civil Security services. The stakeholders involved in the production (e.g. industrial enterprises and engineering companies in Belgium, farmers and suppliers of inputs for agriculture in Senegal) and in the services (e.g. experts, financial institutions) are also targeted as they are consumers of added-value services generating potentially significant revenues.

This covers many industries, for example the food and drink industry (the EU's biggest manufacturing sector in terms of jobs and value added) and the chemical industry (including areas such as paints, coatings, surface treatments, advanced polymers, personal care products, detergents etc.). The production of foams and emulsions and their stability still pose problems with many facets, of which only some are understood so far. Understanding the mechanics of all phenomena influencing stability/instability in foams and emulsions is a prerequisite to efficiently developing more advanced products and applications. Systematic studies on Earth are complicated by the influence of gravity. ESA research on the ISS has uncovered many mechanisms involved in foams/emulsions stability, undertaken with industrial partners from different industries, which are feeding into industrial planning and process as well as future research. Nestlé has demonstrated a strong interest in low gravity experimentation with research scientists involved in this research area with ESA in the last few years. Nestlé is still interested in the investigation of the stabilisation and destabilisation process of food formulations and some key-information can only be obtained in low-gravity conditions, both in parabolic flights and on the ISS. As an example a deep understanding of the mechanism of action of a specific surfactant in an aerated product would help to optimise recipe, process and eventually taste or shelf-life. Microgravity experiments will help to clarify the impact of the liquid drainage around the air bubbles in the coarsening mechanism. In addition, emulsions as well as granular matter also are fields of active research at Nestle, where future collaboration can be expected with the Soft Matter Dynamics science team. Loufakis Chemicals is specifically interested in a better understanding of the effects and phenomena occurring when adding engineered particles to polymeric emulsions (Nano latexes) used for protective coatings and in which droplet coalescence is one of the important processes involved in the formation of the coating film. This will allow them to improve the performance of their commercial polymeric emulsions, adapting concepts and also procedures that may emerge as a result of the space projects. In fact, due to the need for more environmental friendly products and the guidelines of the European Union to stop the use of volatile organic compounds (VOC) in paint formulations (Directive 2004/42/EC), the company is investigating latex-based emulsion coatings that emit less organic solvents into the atmosphere. For example it was previously believed that gravity-driven drainage was the most important cause of destabilisation of metallic foams. However an ESA experiment contradicted this generally accepted understanding and the corresponding models through observing a foam of a molten alloy using X-ray radiography where no drainage could take place. This new knowledge obtained from ESA research on metallic foams enabled the design, and patenting, of a new industrial process and new alloys that deliver stable homogeneous foams. Production has already started and the applicability to advanced very light-weight vehicle structures is subject of a European project involving car manufacturers. This will have a positive impact both economically and environmentally through reduced fuel consumption/emissions.

Improving these models requires accurate thermo-physical data such as thermo-diffusion coefficients, which are impossible to measure on Earth owing to the convection induced by gravity. ESA is enabling significant research in this process using the ISS and different orbital capsules and testing different mixtures in weightlessness to determine such thermo-diffusion data. This has covered a mixture of different binary, ternary and more complex hydrocarbon samples, representative of oil field samples. The latest set of these experiments on the Chinese SJ-10 orbital capsule in 2016 was undertaken with active participation of the French TOTAL and Chinese Petrochina oil companies. This determined for instance accurate data for a four component hydrocarbon mixture at pressures 400 times normal atmospheric pressure at sea level. Gathering such unique data, under such testing experiment conditions, is very positive not only for the influence this has on the accuracy of associated numerical models but also for the continuance of such experiments in this area in the future, addressing in particular samples containing CO2 in relation to carbon dioxide sequestration issues.

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.

Insurers and water authorities want to fully understand the cause of flooding. Currently it takes water managers a lot of time and effort to collect the required information before, during and after an extreme rainfall and flood event. Water managers have a difficult task and require improved information regarding rainfall and streamflow to manage flood events as they unfold allowing them more time to make good decisions. Thanks to funding from the European Space Agency a solution will be developed that allows water managers and insurance companies to access required information quickly and easily. Objective of the InsureApp is to demonstrate “The Rain and Flood Report Generator” service which automatically collects the best available rainfall and flood data from crowdsourcing apps, gauges, radars and satellites for any specified location in Australia. The report generator smartly combines and translates this data into easy to understand rainfall and flood maps and automatically generates documents containing all required information to support flood analysis. Rainfall information is an important source to identify flood causes. Moreover, in water management terms, rainfall is the most important element in the water balance. Water managers can increase water system understanding by improving precipitation quality. In this way, the tools developed in this project are beneficial for both insurance companies and water managers. Australia was chosen as project area, as numerous disasters occur in Australia, the populated areas are poorly monitored and using satellite data is therefore expected to be very beneficial. An extension of Insureapp, called FloodIntelligence, is the development of the forecasting and real-time warning application which will provide flood intelligence services before and during a flood or rain event is currently ongoing. These services will also be very useful in case of emergencies caused by flood or rain.  Disaster response, Disaster risk management, Emergency response, Financial services, Floods, Geo hazards, ResilienceTitle - URLInsureApp Service - The hazard control room for the insurance IndustryDemonstration ProjectOngoingRoberta MugellesiHydroLogic Systems, NLThursday, 8 March, 2018 - 19:40viewOceania

sector and terrestrial networks in Africa, an assessment of the technical and financial benefits that a multiple spot beam like satellite infrastructure could bring, including satellite system detailed design and programmatic aspects. It identified for which purpose and under which conditions, modern multibeam satellite networks can be extended to African countries. This study identified the requirements on satellite telecommunication networks in African developing countries in response to anticipated needs for telecommunication services. The analysis was carried out with the support of African actors with demonstrated expertise and experience in terrestrial telecommunication networks in Africa. The offer of satellite telecommunication networks in these countries was characterised within the targeted 2017 timeframe. The study elaborated a system architecture to define the requirements at satellite level, assuming the use of existing solutions for air interface, user terminals and ground infrastructure. A satellite technical solution based on multi-beam antennas and meeting the identified requirements was proposed, together with a programmatic approach for the satellite payload technology development and the delivery of such a solution. The final objective of the study was to identify the technical and financial benefits, as well as the specifics of the proposed solution, for introducing multi beam satellite networks in the African developing countries.

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.

The services provided data from local sensor networks, satellite communication and Earth observation data to support environmental surveillance and safety offshore in particular related to oil spill, and search and rescue in remote areas. ISSN was used to provide an oil spill detection and monitoring service, which constituted the focus of the subsequent proposed demo project too. ISSN also provided an infrastructure for other (third party) services and had a number of potential application areas in connection with offshore oil & gas exploration and production, environmental surveillance in general, safety, search and rescue, transportation etc. The end users’ main concerns were oil spill detection, monitoring and minimising of the damage when a situation occurs. However, the same system could also be used for other applications such as search and rescue in remote areas or observation and monitoring for situational awareness using imaging technology and communication between the sensor network and the responsible parties.

The Lesson‐2 activity "Take your classroom into space" included a live link between secondary school students and ESA astronaut Frank De Winne during his OasISS mission. The demonstration was designed to give them an appreciation of the conditions of free fall through two simple, curriculum relevant experiments by using a stand‐alone kit. The "Take your classroom into space" call for education ideas, addressed to European educators, was launched in February 2008 by the Human Spaceflight Education Office. "Mass measurement" and "Capillarity" were the two winning ideas which astronaut Frank De Winne demonstrated from the Columbus module of the ISS. For the mass measurement demonstration, students had the opportunity to calculate the mass of an object on the ISS by measuring the time it takes to oscillate whilst hooked onto a spring. The experiment helped to illustrate the difference between the concepts of weight and mass. Students had the possibility to communicate with Frank De Winne during the second part of the live link, asking questions related to the demonstrations. For the capillarity demonstration, students observed the effects of weightlessness on capillarity and understood how gravity affects this phenomenon. As support to these two demonstrations an educational kit was created and distributed by HSF-CO to European teachers for direct demonstrations in the classrooms.

The "Lesson‐3 - Lesson from Space" activity included a live link between primary school students with ESA astronaut Frank De Winne who gave a lesson about life on the ISS which included demonstrations of various water properties. Frank De Winne, being a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF Belgium, performed demonstrations of the basic physical properties of water in weightlessness in relation to the ongoing UNICEF WASH campaign. The three demonstrations were curriculum related activities and have been defined by HSF-CO educational experts. Frank De Winne performed these educational activities during an in-flight call from the Columbus module. As these activities are curriculum related, teachers performed the demonstrations in the classroom. On the HSF education portal, online lessons were developed by HSF-CO education expert. These were available together with the recording of Frank De Winne´s live-link in order for teachers around Europe to use this material during a lesson in the classroom. Students were thus able to compare the results of these demonstrations on the ISS and appreciate the different results obtained in weightlessness and on ground. The demonstrations descriptions were printed in the UNICEF school journal which got distributed to schools.

The key characteristics of what is expected by an internet connection are speed, affordability and reliability. Through the European telecommunication satellites that use Ka-band technology, internet via satellite with high bandwidth and low cost is becoming a reality. On the other side, competition from terrestrial solutions is also increasing through technologies such as WiMax, Hiperlan and LTE. To keep a competitive advantage, satellite-based systems have to be able to provide service packages that can be easily understood by the customers, with characteristics that are close and directly comparable to the ones available in terrestrial offers, such as ADSL. In this sense the Lift Off Project tries to bring further the innovation brought by the recent satellites investigating on how DPI (Deep Packet Inspection) can be introduced by a satellite service provider. The scope of this innovative “next step” on top of the KA-SAT is to optimise the existing services and to generate innovative market offers for satellite internet connectivity maximising the user experience while improving the ratio cost/performances. The Lift Off project identified and implemented a solution based on the Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) of the IP traffic on the KA-SAT network, to enable a “flat” profile offering for applications such as Web browsing and email in a market context (satellite broadband) where such offering did not exist. Objective of the project was to evaluate the behaviour of the end users when operating in the new “flat” commercial proposition and to validate the performance of the system with the proposed solution.

The European Commission has taken a number of actions to ensure appropriate conditions for such operations. One of the most important documents is the Council Regulation (EC) No 1/2005 on the protection of animals during transport. The document sets out the guidelines on how to transport the animals, and introduces the obligation to use satellite navigation systems by those livestock transport companies who provide long term transports (above 8 hours). However, according to studies, most of the companies do not fully utilise the potential and possibilities given by such systems. To meet the requirements of the European Union, Hertz Systems developed a livestock monitoring system that allows real time monitoring of such transports. The solution can be integrated with other vehicle subsystems and transport information such as fuel consumption, temperature conditions, water level control etc. Market analysis has shown, that there is a need for a system dedicated specifically to livestock monitoring during transport. In addition to basic functions as included in regular fleet monitoring systems, sensors mounted within the truck will allow the welfare of the animals to be monitored. A related journey log reporting module generates the required transport reports faster and easier and the connection with other vehicles systems allows additional functionalities supporting the reduction of fuel consumptions as well as better route planning. All these features are intended to reduce operational cost of the transport companies. The analysis showed that companies are very interested in a system which meets all their quality requirements and offers additional functions allowing the reduction of costs arising from the vehicle exploitation.

This was motivated by the recognition that a wider platform was needed to coordinate emerging issues for materials and processes among all stakeholder of the European space community, including space industry, national space agencies, and ESA. A major task of the so-called Materials and Processes Technology Board (MPTB) is the establishment of community wide awareness of the legislative processes such as REACH and RoHS. These regulations affect the future availability of space applied materials, processes, and consequently related technologies because they may contain or require processing of hazardous substances. The MPTB establishes a long-term risk assessment, and coordinates preventive and corrective actions among the European space community. Dedicated development activities are already driven forward and coordinated through Clean Space. Efforts need to continue to strengthen the European supply chain not only for regulatory compliance, but to position the European space community at the forefront of sustainable technologies, establishing the relevant heritage and knowledge management for commercial deployment. 3D printing, Economic growth, Productivity, SustainabilityTitle - URLMaterials and Processes sustainabilityProjectThursday, 8 March, 2018 - 19:40viewEurope

Two groups of participants employed the system. One group was based in Italy and was led by the University of Perugia, which focused on nursing. The other group was based in Norway and led by the University of Tromso, which focused on nursing and medicine. Students attended Perugia University courses either from home or the University classrooms. Additionally a group of professional nurses in Naples used the system for a course on "clinical pathways". The system used in this project can be easily used in other educational fields, in particular Continuing Medical Education (CME). Mayflower was designed to build a service centre based tele-education model. From a business point of view this model foresees an operator, not necessarily the same as the telecommunications provider, that operates the application servers and makes the facility available to the users. At the end of the course the students were provided with a proper grounding in the basic subjects of the five modules for Nurses. The scope was to get the best understanding of the most important elements of the physiological and pathological processes from a nurse perspective, and to understand the therapeutic and rehabilitative intervention. During the whole course, the students were involved in theoretical (Mayflower e-learning) and practical training activities in Perugia, under a tutors direction in both cases. This was done during the e-learning part of the project, employing interactive software and personal contact in Perugia. These issues are associated with the EU's general objective of equal opportunities for all citizens, to which any such research and development effort contributes. This facilitated sharing concept may also induce direct economic benefits through a more efficient exploitation (e.g. continuous, shared use) of existing educational infrastructures and resources.

European wind turbine makers were confronted with a problem: their new clean-energy turbines were efficient, effective and state-of-the-art – but they were too noisy. It turned out that ESA’s advanced Darwin planet-hunter study provided a smart answer: using the same approach that keeps multiple telescope mirrors precisely aligned to cancel out turbine vibration before it becomes noise. Wind turbines produce two different kinds of noises. The first is the motorway-like drone from the blades. The other is ‘tonality’ – an irregular shriek from the gearbox. Tonality is even more annoying than broadband whirring noises, so governments regulate these noises very strictly. Often, the only way to keep a shrieking wind turbine from disturbing the peace of an idyllic countryside is to operate the machine at less than full power. Micromega therefore drew on their work with ESA to solve the problem quickly. In the case of the shrieking wind turbine, the company looked back to its work on Darwin. For this to work, the mirrors of each small telescope had to be in constant alignment. To move the mirrors, Micromega developed a high-precision mechanism using magnetic bearings. This mechanism would adjust the mirrors under the exacting circumstances of space, which required that the bearings work with high precision, zero friction and at very low temperatures. Darwin was not selected to make it into space but the space simulations developed by Micromega came in handy as they set about designing an actuator to quieten the wind turbines. The knowledge developed for space made it faster to come with an answer for the wind industry. Generating a counter-vibration – with the same size as the vibration producing the tonality, but in the opposite direction – proved to be the answer: the vibration is killed before it reaches the surface where it becomes sound.

New functionality developed under this MIDAS extension include the MIDAS Route Proving System which uses a variant of the Clearance Management System (CMS) designed for use within vehicles operating in post conflict scenarios. It creates a map of an area that can be used to show safe routes for vehicle travel. The other functionality is the MIDAS Autonomous Search Systems which will enable automated stand-off detection using an Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) or Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV). The unmanned system will be tasked with an area to search from the Clearance Management Tool (CMT) and then autonomously follows a defined search path avoiding obstacles.  Safety, SecurityTitle - URLDemonstration ProjectCompletedRoberta MugellesiCobham Technical Services http://www.cobham.com/Wednesday, 14 April, 2021 - 09:36viewGlobal

The objective of the project was to develop a miniaturised, automated system for sampling and monitoring the microbiological quality of air, surfaces, and potentially water and food. For ESA, the system would be used in the International Space Station for air, surface and water treatment, as well as in ESA clean rooms used for robot assembly (in line with COSPAR's Planetary Protection Policy). For bioMérieux, applications would be found in the monitoring system's ability to enable rapid response to contamination, ensuring the safety of sterile pharmaceutical products (e.g. vaccines), and in critical environmental control areas such as in hospitals (e.g. hematology, sterile foods). ESA and bioMérieux co-developed the world's first fully automated system to monitor for the microbial contamination of air and surfaces using molecular detection. The system was launched in 2014. The MiDASS system addresses two major societal concerns: pharmaceutical drug safety and the high costs of healthcare. The system not only facilitates the development of safer drugs for consumers, but it also makes drug manufacturing more economical. The Federal Drug Authority (FDA) is pushing for more effective microbial monitoring systems during sterile drug production (the process analytical technology (PAT) initiative). In addition, the pharmaceutical industry wants to make sure it can detect incidents as quickly as possible. This system not only closely monitors the air and surfaces in pharmaceutical drug production processes, but it also fulfills the need for rapid tools for troubleshooting when contamination is detected. It also avoids product dumping. Therefore, from an economic perspective, it is expected that pharma manufacturing costs can be reduced significantly through better mastering of the production process. MELiSSA expertise MELiSSA possesses and fosters distinctive expertise in the identification of microbial risks in closed and intensive environments. Furthermore, MELiSSA has extensive experience in the joint development with industry of equipment which must meet the highest standards.

Imagine the following scene : unproven medical trainees trying ambitious medical procedures on a prone patient nick-named 'Stan the Man'. The people watching are also trainees - observing from distant hospital sites thanks to an ESA-backed satellite system which also provided the option to remotely take part in the action. Stan makes the perfect patient; he never complains about being used as a test-subject. His heartbeat, pulse and breathing are normal, and if trainees cut him, he will bleed, but no-one ever has to worry about doing him real harm. Stan is really a sophisticated mannequin, his life-like responses controlled by a nearby computer called the Human Patient Simulator (HPS). The HPS is the centrepiece of the UK-based Bristol Medical Simulator Centre, used to familiarise students, physicians and medical support staff with real-life clinical scenarios. Training sessions using the HPS were broadcast via DirecPC satellites to more than a dozen sites across the UK as well as Bosnia, as part of a project called MultiMED. The now-concluded pilot scheme was aimed at providing cost-effective Continuing Medical Education (CME) to healthcare professionals. In advance of a simulation MultiMED staff could download teaching modules via DirecPC into local terminal data caches. Remote users could then use the terminal for offline coursework and reference, then real-time passive observations once the simulation starts, and ultimately active intervention via a return internet link to influence the outcome of the HPS scenario in play. 'Tele-education' represents one of the most promising applications of satellite telemedicine. Satellites can multicast video lectures and associated data to widely-dispersed sites. Another ESA-funded project called Mayflower has successfully demonstrated using satellites to deliver university courses in medicine to students and nurses in Norway and Italy.

By accurately predicting popular content, the system lowers the total bandwidth use for the satellite broadband operator. At the same time, the system enhances the use experience of watching video and similar content from an online source. The project's main premise was that the demand for video rich media is rapidly gaining popularity over the traditional internet. In the UK and worldwide, the demand for video over the internet is increasing at a lightning speed with the increase in fast broadband connections to homes and the emergence of more service providers that are offering content streaming services on a commercial and non-commercial basis. Although it is a win-win situation for service providers and end users, the demand in the market has proven problematic to the internet service providers who gain nothing or little from providing “fat pipes” for enabling these services to their users while bearing the costs of providing and running the infrastructure. Project NXY looked at addressing the issue of content delivery to the satellite broadband end users that used the services during the pilot of the project and the technical and commercial implications on the satellite broadband provider who operated the service. For satellite broadband providers, the challenge is to provide a high quality user experience while keeping the costs of delivery down.

For each solution the topology needed to be analysed, its cost estimated, and its benefits assessed in terms of the quality of broadband delivered and the uptake to be expected. This work was carried out for three geo-economic regions, whereby access networks, as well as interconnection networks were scrutinised. Short-term (2015-2019) as well as long-term solutions (2020-2025) were sought and a numerical and visualisation tool which allows to elaborate sample test cases for communication purposes was developed. During the project a pilot measurement campaign was carried out to assess the broadband quality delivered by the satellite solution.

The space section of ‘Oil Emulsion’ was filmed and downlinked. This experiment highlights how an oil and water emulsion behaves differently in weightlessness and on Earth. A sealed container holding two immiscible fluids, clear oil and ink-coloured water, were shaken until the two fluids slightly mixed. The fluids’ behavior in space were filmed within defined time slots during a two week test. The data was downlinked and the results were shown in a children's programme on German public television. The different kinds of segregation that occured during the experiment, in space and on Earth, could be observed and explained by teachers.

The sector has been under increasing public scrutiny and pressure whereas the rapid expansion of planted area to meet the growing demand can have significant environmental and social impact. Much of the criticism has focused on the establishment of oil palm plantations at the expense of high conservation value areas and high carbon-stock lands (e.g. intact forests and peat land). In response to this, efforts are underway on the certification of environmental sustainability of palm oil production, reporting of carbon footprints, and efforts to increase productivity of existing plantations, among others. Challenges remain in demonstrating compliance as well as credible carbon stock assessment. Moreover, the fragmented character of production areas, with a large number of smallholders distributed over large areas, often presents problems for ground audits as well as for a cost-effective assessment of productivity and fertiliser needs The PalmOilVision service aimed to strengthen corporate environmental sustainability and carbon footprint reporting, and to increase production efficiency in the palm oil sector. PalmOilVision supports growers, consumer product manufacturers and other stakeholders using integration of optical and radar satellite remote sensing technologies, unmanned aerial vehicle systems (UAVS) and satellite positioning.

Delivered by France’s CNES space agency, Pharao is accurate to a second in 300 million years, which will allow scientists to test fundamental theories proposed by Albert Einstein with a precision that is impossible in laboratories on Earth. Time is linked to gravity and, for example, passes faster at the top of Mount Everest than at sea level. These effects have been proven in experiments on Earth but the Atomic Clock Ensemble in Space, ACES, will make more precise measurements as it flies 400 km high on humanity’s weightless laboratory. Comparing clocks under different gravity levels allows researchers to test Einstein’s theories on space–time and other theories in fundamental physics. To achieve its accurate timekeeping, the Pharao space clock uses lasers to cool caesium atoms down to –273°C, close to absolute zero. Moreover there is the possibility of including Pharao-type clocks in next-generation Galileo systems.

Many recent events provide a clear picture of the dramatic impact in terms of safety of people and safeguard of the marine environment that a missing or wrong interpretation of meteo-marine conditions can cause. Meteo-marine conditions are important not only for the safety of navigation but also for the economics of commercial activities that are exercised on the sea. A study carried out by Corsica Ferries company, shows that, the impact of meteo-marine factors (wind, waves, currents) can be quantified as around 14% of the overall energy (i.e. fuel) consumption. The reduction, through the provision of specific commercial weather routing services, of the impact of meteomarine conditions on navigation safety, in terms of prevention of sea accidents (with associated costs) and on fuel consumption (with associated environmental benefits) constitutes the contest of Profumo services. Profumo proposed a collaborative model: end-users cooperate to the Profumo services providing their own geo- referenced Meteo-marine measures gathered from common on-board sensors. Weather models can produce good nowcasts and forecasts only if “fed” with a good and large amount of actual measured data. On seas meteorological stations are extremely sparse: Profumo used vessels as moving meteorological stations, which continuously provide this precious information. The meteorological data from vessels are not-certified, unusable as-is in the models. Therefore, a specific data processing technique merges and extracts proper information as input for the high resolution weather models.

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.

As the number of beams grows, improved beamforming capabilities are required in addition to greater flexibility both in routing between beams and in frequency planning. The demands of such complex missions require high-performance digital signal processors (DSPs). An ESA Technology Research Programme (TRP) contract with Astrium UK targeted a DSP design for next-generation mobile missions, targeting a capacity 10 times greater than the current Inmarsat 4 processor. The design implements a downsized architecture of the return processor across three separate field-programmable gate array modules, with 16 input elements and two feeder outlets. The design is capable of emulating a larger 160 element antenna, demonstrating advanced beamforming functionalities, developed within the contract, that will in turn enable the Alphasat Inmarsat XL mission. This R&D work has been paving the way to the follow-up Next Generation Processor development to fly on the Inmarsat XL Alphasat satellite co-funded by the ESA Telecom Advanced Research in Telecommunication Systems (ARTES) programme. Furthermore, the innovative transparent processor architecture devised and prototyped in this contract has been pivotal for other R&D activities related to the design of onboard processors for broadband satellite telecommunication missions, which will benefit from the on-going digital Deep Sub-Micron (DSM) technology development.

The project imported live surgical video from operating theatres within the participating centres at high quality for inclusion into the TV broadcasts to all sites and provided interaction with trainees and local Surgical Tutors via voice, e-mail/chat and video conferencing during the live transmissions. The benefit of SANTTSUR to surgeon trainees lay in providing an interactive learning environment and high quality learning materials at the workplace. It is important to all trainees and Surgical Tutors, all with busy schedules, that no time is wasted travelling to a different location. Benefits of cost saving in time and benefits to the environment were thus also identified. The synchronisation of the training period across multiple hospitals facilitated more efficient sharing of expertise from dispersed Surgical Tutors and encouraged peer interaction at each site. The viability of the approach was considered in the light of experiences and perception of trainees. In particular the developing partnership between the University of Plymouth and The Royal College of Surgeons of England was discussed in the context of viability. As a result of this partnership it is expected to develop SANTTSUR and STEP into a new course, teleSTEP and this concept will be explored. The Final Review was completed successfully at the University of Plymouth on 16 and 17 April 2002. Education, Education, Health, ICT, Medical, TelemedicineTitle - URLSANTTSURIntegrated Applications ProjectCompletedPlymouth Enterprise Partnerships Ltd. (UK)Lessons Learned from SANTTSUR Satellite Delivery The main success of SANTTSUR has been in the use of MPEG2 satellite as the key delivery platform. This has proved to be the most reliable platform employed in SANTTSUR. In the early stages of the application for the contract there were doubts about whether other satellite technologies were more appropriate and whether the expected implementation of high bandwidth terrestrial networks, such as ADSL would make satellite delivery redundant. In the three years of this gestation period, these alternatives have simply not happened. The decision to go with the quality, maturity and reliability of MPEG2 transmissions has been vindicated. In a period where expectations were for an enormous change in availability of terrestrial high bandwidth networks in the UK, little has happened. Equally, any suggestions of integration of NHSNET with high bandwidth educational networks is still a remote possibility. The SANTTSUR Approach One of the most important successes in SANTTSUR was the Training the Presenters course, with accompanying template. This has ensured a level of consistency and quality in the content delivered that was essential for the viability of the project. The confidence instilled into the SANTTSUR presenters has also enabled the development of a wider "anchorman" pool, due to the confidence of the individuals involved. The approach has also highlighted some areas which were successful and some which were not so successful. Video conferencing was shown to be effective at ISDN6 quality for importing content but not so good when ISDN2 was used for asking questions. The culture of the trainees has been better understood and the popularity of the text messaging mode for interaction has been clearly demonstrated. As text messaging appears to be the preferred, convenient, cost-effective means for interaction, this technology will be explored further in terms of developing mobile technologies. The generic nature of the course delivery method and course content had been demonstrated in terms of adoption by several Colleges of Surgery, not just exclusively to one. The Strategic Plan The original plan has proved to be effective for the transition from SANTTSUR to mrcsTV. The idea of linking dissemination with sponsorship, expansion of sites and transfer to new areas of activity has been very effective. This integrated approach will continue on all fronts. Management Issues A key issue to be addressed is in the management and administration of the distance training course delivery. As the number of sites increases it will become even more important to ensure that contacts with key staff at the receive sites is efficient and effective. It is important to continue to encourage feedback from trainees on the transmissions. From SANTTSUR to mrcsTV and Beyond: An Ongoing Development and Implementation Strategy This section outlines the developments and changes following the SANTTSUR funding period,. There are specific examples of developments in the process of moving from SANTTSUR to mrcsTV that contribute to ensuring sustainability of mrcsTV into the future. One such example is the development of the presentation template. Working from the original SANTTSUR design, a new design was implemented in the transfer to mrcsTV. Apart from stamping a "new image" to show that the research project had matured into a viable entity, this was a move towards a design that was better laid out, more practical & flexible and clearer for the viewer to see (Figures 1 and 2). Figure 1. Example live presentation layout used in SANTTSUR Figure 2. Example live presentation layout used in mrcsTV. Although this development may appear to be trivial or cosmetic, the impact of the improved presentation style was key component in the transition from research project to viable entity and was important in establishing a "brand". Again, the introduction of a brand is important. The most important feature of the ongoing development is the consistent approach adopted in implementing the Strategic Plan. This Strategic Plan will continue to form the basis for all further developments.Thursday, 8 March, 2018 - 19:40viewEurope

Current practice still treats aerial surveillance of disasters as a non-real-time activity, with results often only available days later. The combination of satellite and terrestrial technologies in the modular system architecture of the SASISA service offers transformational change for the benefit of improved emergency response, while at the same time complying with established operational modes and financial limitations of civil public sector user agencies. SASISA aimed to prove the concept of a reliable, low-cost, real-time disaster-surveillance service for first responders and other civil security-sector users in combining a variety of existing space and terrestrial technologies in a new modular approach therbey permitting a much higher performance/price ratio and more flexibility in fast, effective emergency response than current operational approaches. This new capacity validated by SASISA was identified by users as a required enabler for the safety and security performance that is expected by European citizens. SASISA was to prepare the ground for a versatile, commercially viable new service that satisfies these operational requirements in Europe and potentially also beyond. With active involvement of stakeholder and users, the feasibility study investigated, analysed and defined the best feasible implementation of the service, to prove the concept in collaboration with the users and to prepare the ground for a viable business case to sustain the system and its associated services.

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.

suitability of the Sat3Play platform, originally designed for the consumer and SoHo market, to provide reliable and secured financial services (e.g. to money transfer companies, microfinance institutions, banks and Automated Teller Machines) in remote and underserved areas in emerging countries in Africa. SatFinAfrica targets remote sites of large organisations, in particular financial institutions, which have a critical need for a ubiquitous and secured telecommunication platform with adequate latency performance and privacy and acceptable service costs. Not covered by terrestrial communications means that these remote sites are generally not large enough to justify the investment in a classic corporate VSAT. Two main financial applications are targeted, namely, money transfer and automated telling machines (ATMs). In addition, SatFinAfrica also targets the development and provision of VNO (Virtual Network Operator) and QoS features for the Sat3Play platform to allow local distributors to autonomously manage the service profiles of their pools of customers and become, de-facto, local service operators. This is supported by the development of a monitoring & controlling tool (CMT, Customer Management Tool), which provides a user-friendly web-interface with different levels of rights to grant local distributors the required level of autonomy and ease of usage.

To achieve this the project was to support innovators during the whole incubation process, starting from the moment an idea is submitted, to targeted support for integration of a prototype and to the final provision of a set of recommendations at the end of the pilot period. A satellite-optimised suite of tools called SaToolBox was developed to allow the applicants to focus on their core solution rather than re-creating basic functionalities such as Multicast, VoIP or web-conferencing over satellite. At the same time a wider satellite technology choice was offered and therefore higher flexibility for testing. Access to the SatADSL Service Delivery Platform for the provision of services was tailored to user requirements (dedicated, contended, volume-based, VNOs…) and a set of Value-Added Services (Customer Management Tool, Network Monitoring, automatic payments, hotspots…). The project has been concluded in September 2017. The SATLAS incubator has been successfully deployed and tested, with four out of the five selected ideas graduating successfully. The incubated ideas in the field of Internet of Things, optimized communications, agriculture, tourism, worked with the SATLAS consortium to build up or improve their product, using the resources provided by SATLAS. Pilots where executed in Europe and in Africa. The successful graduates of SATLAS either achieved commercial success during/after the pilots or obtained lessons learned and established collaborations that will allow them to reach their goals. The SATLAS consortium has also been engaged in novel applications and will continue working with some of the graduates beyond the SATLAS contract.

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.

When talking to potential users a common understanding shows that crisis prevention and management with the appropriate communications infrastructure is highly desirable. A communications network via satellite is obviously seen as an excellent backup and fill-in option. It is highly flexible, deployable, performing, and reliable. The objective of this project was to implement a network that is ready at all times to immediately respond to the requirements of a crisis or failure of terrestrial connections. With this objective, a number of specific hardware and software features were developed, typical user configurations built and a pilot network operated. The network has to guarantee availability as well as support the main applications of the user groups. By this shared usage, the operational costs are kept at an affordable level for all users.

The effects of COVID-19 have worsened this, with a decrease in the number of transport modes such as ferries and a higher quantity of medical goods moving within the NHS supply chain. The SEDDCR service aims to enable the delivery of medical supplies and samples by drones enabled by space-based technology. The drone solution is piloted remotely from the Operations Centre, and flies automatically, navigating through pre-set waypoints. The Satcom connectivity between the Ground Control Station (GCS) and the drone is an essential part of the solution as it provides 100% communications coverage over the entire route, which is a crucial safety enabler to scalable drone delivery solutions. Drone delivery can significantly improve the speed and frequency with which medical products move between hospitals and medical practices, all whilst using an unmanned transport system which enables  essential NHS staff to reduce their exposure to COVID-19 through improved social distancing.

SENSA targets two main field actors, namely "Protected Areas" actors (natural parks / protected areas managing authorities) and "Ecotourism" actors (responsible travel operators and local tourism services providers). It addresses the needs of end-users (responsible travellers / tourists) seeking authentic and natural travels in well preserved wilderness areas. Several types of satellites (navigation, communication and earth observation) are used for environmental mapping, site accessibility, travellers itineraries in protected areas, geo-localised emergency services and geo-localised field best practice, as well as on-site field observations from the travellers (geo-localised pictures / measurements / observations). Parks are able, through better environmental management means, to increase the number of visitors and to allow a more comprehensive access to their sites. Satellite-based applications, enabling optimised temporal & spatial distribution of travellers in natural parks, in adequacy with mapped environmental and safety considerations are fostered. Ecotourism operators are able, through the use of dedicated services to plan fully personalised itineraries, to open new discovery frontiers and authentic immersion for travellers in protected areas, as well as to become active preservation agents by reporting from the field, the state of conservation of the visited areas. SENSA promotes an increase of opportunities for travellers while enhancing environmental preservation, and consequently increasing revenues for both Natural Parks Authorities and Ecotourism Travel Operators.

This involved the need for rapid recognition of damages after a storm, clearance need detection and prioritisation of areas, supervision of vegetation clearance, and analysis of the cost efficiency of new methods. To meet these user needs SharperSat used satellite EO supported by remote sensing and airborne data gathered by remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) and its own software solutions to provide a new level of accuracy and faster time-to-results. Software automatically analysed data and identified the need for corrective actions in the field. The service was integrated within the end users processes and the analysis resulted in a maintenance plan with economic optimisation of the actions related to detected issues. No single data gathering method could solve all the needs of end users. Therefore the solution of power line inspection problems was combined with several inspection methods that complement each other in such a way that the inspection results met the needs of the customer in a cost-efficient manner. The primary market was European TSOs/DSOs, secondary market was Northern American TSOs/DSOs including USA and Canada. The overall logic behind the service concept was to provide OPEX cost reduction to end users. This was achieved through always using the most economic method for analysis and to determine accurately where more expensive and accurate inspection methods should be used in order to minimise unnecessary cost of inspection and maintenance work. The proposed integrated solution included two relevant space assets, namely satellite Earth observation and Global Navigation Satellite System. SatEO is is able to deliver wide coverage, low cost data over the power line network and related vegetation frequently. This enables optimising the timing and frequency for inspections and potentially replacing partially traditional inspection methods. Therefore, costs for maintenance inspections can be sufficiently reduced. The dominating remote sensing method used relied on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), based on the satellite positioning system GNSS, due to its cost-efficiency, availability and support for both LiDAR and visual imaging.

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.

The main objectives are to assist rural children and teachers to be more tech savvy and become aware of the benefits that information and communication technologies bring with them, to develop awareness amongst local youth, as well as amongst the wider community members, of the importance of preserving their local wildlife heritage, to implement and validate a set of pilot edutainment services (e.g. small digital cinema in the classrooms, radio channels) and to foster awareness and facilitate the utilisation of the system by the local communities. The project has created “twinning” activities between the South African schools and the Italian school to exchange educational, cultural and linguistic experiences and developed a partnership with the European and South African industry to establish a scalable and sustainable service to meet the above objectives on a wider deployment scale. The project will further realise an additional cluster of 20 satcom-enabled radio stations in the rural area of the Democratic Republic of Congo in order to expand the current network of rural radio stations deployed in Sway4edu with an additional 20 pilot sites to promote the “cloud” service. This will allow radio stations to generate their own radio programmes and to share them online with the other radios, enabling collaborative post-production of the content before final FM broadcasting to the local communities.

Energy companies and local and National EU Governments are some of the user groups who have an obligation to comply with the stated regulations. The ThermCERT system allows for a city-wide impartial situational awareness with regular data acquisition of the city’s thermal performance. This allows the ineffective use of energy to be spotted. Conventional data aggregation methods lag in temporal resolution, spatial coverage, are resource intensive to implement, and do not provide the granularity to be able to spot problems on the ground. The output of the ThermCERT system is available through data aggregation and integration from multiple satellite sources. The ThermCERT system represents an opportunity to gain an impartial overview of the built environment by capturing the thermal performance of the whole city at consistent regularity. Additionally, the system enables the analysis of urban data acquisitions to identify problematic areas by a range of parameters derived from satellite observations. A high resolution in situ data acquisition is enabled for thermal inspection of building facades at a closer glance. The ThermCERT system makes use of Sentinels-1 & -2, WorldView, Pleiades, and other very high resolution multispectral satellite missions, in order to derive building parameters for the building stock classification purpose. Landsat 8 and Terra ASTER thermal bands will enable city-wide thermal energy intensity distribution analyses.

The hand held device was built by ONCE (the Spanish National Organisation of Blind people) with the Spanish company GMV Sistemas using EGNOS (European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service). This personal navigator speaks to the user, like any GPS device in a car, weighs less than one kilo and can be used in two ways: to guide the user to their destination or to tell them where they are as they walk around. Where the accuracy given by GPS is not precise enough and not guaranteed, EGNOS corrects the GPS signals and gives an accuracy of 2 m (as compared to 15 to 20 m accuracy given by GPS). It also warns the users of any problems with the signal, thus giving integrity information. EGNOS is transmitted to the ground via geostationary satellites, which results sometimes with signals being blocked by buildings. This is called the canyon effect. To solve this problem, ESA engineers had the idea of getting the data through the Internet via a GSM connection, a project called SISNeT (Signal In Space through Internet), making EGNOS available anywhere downtown. The system is not intended to replace a white cane or a guide dog but rather to complement them with an audible map.

The antenna is foldable so that it can be easily transported and fast deployable/stowed so that a communication link can quickly be established. Demonstration by live testing over satellite with a COTS modem has been performed. When disaster has struck, applying correct aid and relief work is critical, in particular within the first few hours and days after the event. To communicate the type of aid and direct it to where it is needed, there is a clear demand for communication infrastructure for emergency relief personnel, security and military personnel and companies that require rapidly deployable, high-bandwidth satellite communications, including TV reporters. Under emergency conditions, the availability of existing communication infrastructure cannot be guaranteed and there is a need for alternative ad-hoc links to exchange various vital data information from remote locations where other telecommunication infrastructure may be either inadequate or not available. The URDA antenna is positioned in an area of the market that is currently lacking solutions. It boasts an ultra-rapid deployable reflector (less than 5 minutes to deploy and point the antenna) with an equivalent aperture diameter larger than 0.8 m.

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).

Earth observation (EO) derived data products, analytics and monitoring tools can identify where there is a likely high risk of subsidence and flood risk via online, interactive maps, to improve infrastructure planning and management and reduce operational costs. This new opportunity has emerged through the escalating need for cities to become more resilient, and the availability of new satellite data sources such as Sentinel 1 and 2, combined with the evolution of Rezatec’s EO analytical capabilities, such as SAR interferometry. The project aimed to have a profound contribution to city-regional economic, environmental and human well-being by demonstrating the value of space data in enabling strategic investment and decision making to support more resilient development pathway. The URGED platform is a global service. For the Demo project, the pilot implementations were executed in the UK due to the location of the end users however the data products have global commercial potential. The URGED platform was built on top of existing system and service architecture but with new and crucial additional development to support the URGED services, such as geospatial data, flood hazard data, land surface movement hazard and so on. Predictive analytics toolkits and analytic services based on Earth observation data, automated image processing techniques and diverse geospatial analyses were employed to create analytical data for urban landscapes. The URGED Portal is a security-enabled web application that acts as a user friendly client to access data products and is the primary method of data delivery and enables users to search, view, interrogate and download geospatial datasets.

This reflected growing demand for broadcast quality video content from regions with limited terrestrial infrastructure. In conjunction with this, High Efficiency Video Codec (HEVC/H.265) offers nearly twice the efficiency of the current H.264 codecs. The project successfully showed live HD and SD video transmissions from remote locations with no terrestrial infrastructure using a Quicklink HEVC custom encoder and GX and BGAN HDR terminals. GNSS was also used to demonstrate that all media could be geo-tagged. An initial pilot took place in Europe using the HEVC encoder over the Inmarsat BGAN HDR network. This was followed by a pilot with key broadcasters using the encoder over the Eutelsat NewsSpotter and Inmarsat GX services. The key objective of the project was to introduce a disruptive technology, namely a satellite-optimised HEVC codec which could be integrated in a small, mobile form factor and be powered by standard camera batteries.

The village of Sidi Taïbi near Kenitra has grown rapidly in recent years, and providing fresh water to its inhabitants is difficult because the groundwater is so rich in nitrates and fertiliser it is unsuitable for human consumption. MELiSSA expertise: ESA has been working for over 20 years on the best recipe for a closed life-support system that processes waste and delivers fresh oxygen, food and water to astronauts. One of the discoveries is how to build and control organic and ceramic membranes with holes just one ten-thousandth of a millimetre across. These tiny pores can filter out unwanted compounds in water, in particular nitrate. With help from a UNESCO partnership, the University of Kenitra looked to apply this new approach to tackle their drinking-water problem.

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.

The regional air quality information is important because not all pollution affecting a city actually originates there – studies show that up to half may originate elsewhere. The forecasts include predictions of overall effects on health on an index from one to ten. The YourAir service resolves air pollution down to the scale of individual streets – highest levels are often found along routes with heavy traffic or other pollution sources, so information on street-by-street changes in pollution help vulnerable people make informed choices about their movements. The prototype service covers Central London and Croydon in South London, which is one of the city's largest boroughs by area and the largest by population, with 330 000 inhabitants.
