  13. 13. ESA UNCLASSIFIED - For Official Use Big data applications to boost preparedness and response to migration
  14. 14. Roberto Cossu | 07/10/2016 | Slide 14ESA UNCLASSIFIED - For Official Use Background  Europe is being confronted with the most significant influxes of migrants and refugees in its history.  One burning issue is the lack of timely information on migration trends, flows and rates.  Big data applications have been recognized as a potentially powerful tool to provide direct and indirect indicators of migration trends.  ESA’s IAP is preparing an invitation to tender of the feasibility study “Big data applications to boost preparedness and response to migration". Europe is being confronted with the most significant influxes of migrants and refugees in its history. One burning issue is the lack of timely information on migration trends, flows and rates. ESA’s IAP has issued the “Big data applications to boost preparedness and response to migration“ invitation to tender.
  15. 15. Roberto Cossu | 07/10/2016 | Slide 15ESA UNCLASSIFIED - For Official Use Feasibility study overview Objectives:  Assess if and how space technology combined with big data can support the identification of migration flows (focus on mitigation, preparedness and response)  Assess the viability of the proposed services  Propose a roadmap for service(s) implementation and demonstration. 6 months duration 150 K€ (firm fixed price)
  16. 16. Roberto Cossu | 07/10/2016 | Slide 16ESA UNCLASSIFIED - For Official Use Why Big data? Which data? Why space tech? Why Big Data?  Big data applications have been recognized as a potentially powerful tool to provide direct and indirect indicators of migration trends and human movements.  Blumenstock 2012 to track migration patterns in Rwanda from call detail records  Studies on use of geo-located social media (Twitter) data to infer migration trends.  … Which Data?  Geolocated social media (e.g.: Facebook, twitter )  Geolocation provided by smartphone’s apps  IP addresses of website logins and sent e-mails  Call detail records  …. Why space tech?  Direct and indirect indicators of migratory flows (e.g.: information on socio-economic factors , unusual human activities, etc.) derived from EO data to provide a medium term human migration forecast (relevant to the mitigation phase)  RPAS are typically part of humanitarian relief activities may provide valuable info  GNSS

  19. 19. Roberto Cossu | 07/10/2016 | Slide 19ESA UNCLASSIFIED - For Official Use SeaSearch Project overview Objectives SeaSearch is aiming at providing a Maritime Situation Awareness Picture based on a detection of mobile phones signals carried by persons at sea, allowing the tracking of small vessels or vessels with turned-off AIS transponders. Service/ System Concept SeaSearch system provides: • Detection of small boats outside of the radar coverage • Detection of small boats with large number of passengers • Detection of “new” passenger on board • Support tracking of small vessels Target users • Coast Guards, • Navies, • Public authorities dealing with smuggling.

Roberto Cossu | 07/10/2016 | Slide 21ESA UNCLASSIFIED - For Official Use Maritime Prevention Project (MAPP) Demonstrator Prime: Collecte Localisation Satellites (CLS) Target Users: • Shipping companies • Situational awareness centres Insurance companies (indirect) Background: Following a pirates' attack, onboard communication equipment are destroyed: the vessel’s track is lost, the research area grows as time passes, making it harder to deploy rescue assets efficiently. The challenge is to answer to the question: “Where is my ship?”. Objective: Develop , validate and demonstrate the ‘Keep in sight’ service which combines a hidden tracker installed onboard (advanced “doppler effect” positioning –ARGOS system- GNSS free) -and EO acquisitions to provide this critical information.
