Vehicle positioning performance is key for the success of the service, since the user is informed on where to pick up his vehicle based on this source. G-MOTIT project aims to develop and integrating an EGNSS-based location technology. The location solution will be validated both functionally and operationally through a small- scale demonstration in Grand Paris region. The objectives of the project are:  to design and develop an independent EGNSS enabled positioning on- board unit that will be integrated into the service,  to demonstrate and validate how the EGNSS-based positioning unit can bring added value to the service,  to support the commercialisation of the G-MOTIT solution.

GALENA Galileo-based solutions for urban freight transport • Contract Number: 641515 • Total Cost: 1,267,240 € • EU Contribution: 954,936 € • Project Call: H2020-GALILEO-2014-1 • Start Date: 01/01/2015 • End Date: 31/12/2016 • Duration: 24 months • Coordinator: HELILEO SA The GALENA project aims at developing a robust Freight Pooling application, i.e. the equipment as well as the information system and the supervision platform needed for the cross supply chain orchestration of a community of shippers involved in freight pooling, particularly in urban areas where many carriers are involved. The GALENA application will make use of the key features of EGNOS and GALILEO, coupled with security services in the handset, to enable the different carrier operators willing to join a Mutualized Transportation Community to timestamp, geo-locate, and formalize their trip as well as any events occurring during the shipping. By doing so, the GALENA application will enable to remotely and automatically track and manage - in a secure and non-falsifiable way – along the supply chain the status changes and the liability for goods shipping between the different stakeholders involved in urban freight pooling – thus solving the concerns on quality of service, liability for goods, and flows traceability. GALENA will also improve the logistical performance and reduce the negative impacts associated with the last-mile logistics: congestion, energy consumption and pollutant emissions.

  22. 22. GEO VISION GNSS driven EO and Verifiable Image and Sensor Integration for mission-critical Operational Networks • Contract Number: 641451 • Total Cost: 1,323,316 € • EU Contribution: 999,654 € • Project Call: H2020-GALILEO-2014-1 • Start Date: 01/01/2015 • End Date: 31/12/2016 • Duration: 24 months • Coordinator: ANSUR TECHNOLOGIES AS The main objective of the GEO VISION project is to provide users with required situational awareness through the development of the interactive mission- critical visual communications software solution. This will be realized by seamlessly and reliably integrating geo-referenced visual and related sensor in-situ data with maps and geo-spatial space information in a timely, seamlessly integrated, secure and user-friendly way. This approach will be used for managing operational phases of situations like disasters and emergencies, as well as rapid damage assessments and a basis for insurance and cost estimate, while building on current initiatives, proven concepts and realistic user requirements from experienced field assessment officials. Two markets are considered in the project: Humanitarian: Disaster response (United Nations) and emergency management (civil protection). Financial: Damage documentation for cost claims in smaller (Insurance) and larger (World Bank) Scale. A novel business element is the connection of the two, as if private financial users (insurance) get access to relevant crisis data early, they are able to consider if a rapid reaction from their side might fund a response that both saves lives and values.

The final product is high resolution, oriented, calibrated and integrated images of a corridor and its environment. The second objective is to demonstrate services; i.e., the technical/commercial feasibility of the concept. The third objective is to develop the market: at the end of the project, contracts or negotiations shall be in place so the prototype can be used in operational conditions. MapKITE targets corridor mapping.

  26. 26. MISTRALE Monitoring of Soil moisture and water-flooded areas for agriculture and environment • Contract Number: 641606 • Total Cost: 3,337,858 € • EU Contribution: 2,599,246 € • Project Call: H2020-GALILEO-2014-1 • Start Date: 01/01/2015 • End Date: 31/12/2017 • Duration: 36 months • Coordinator: M3 Systems Belgium The MISTRALE project proposes to address soils moisture management in agriculture as well as wetlands or flooded areas monitoring by using Global Navigation Satellite Systems reflected signals (GNSS-R) as a powerful technology for humidity or flooded mapping. The detection by GNSS-R is known to be much more reliable than visible/NIR imagery, and will be usable even under a cloud cover, during the night and even under vegetation (bushes, grass, trees) when passive remote sensing is not applicable. The main objective is to demonstrate a service chain in different use cases: pilot projects will be carried out in soil humidity mapping for agriculture (optimizing the water resource management), wetlands and flooded areas (risk management, flood-prone areas, damages evaluation). In order to meet the objectives, a GNSS-R receiver embedded into a small RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aircraft System) will be developed and implemented into an operational chain to provide the service. The overarching aim of the MISTRALE project is to reach the commercialisation of a service providing soil moisture maps. To achieve that, MISTRALE will develop and demonstrate a prototype of GNSS Reflectometry (GNSS-R) sensor embedded on a dedicated Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) platform for measuring soil moisture using the GNSS reflected signature.

The main idea behind the project is to combine different types of data related with biomass, namely Earth Observation (EO) data (e.g. satellite imagery), regional data (e.g. airborne imagery and GNSS-based remote sensing data) and, when available, local data (in situ measurements) to improve current biomass estimation algorithms, with many environmental and social applications as, for example, carbon mapping and forest management. Galileo is a key enabler of the proposed concept, providing accurate positioning and supporting image georeferencing and remote sensing.
