  9. 9. Give us space, it’s our business . Dateci spazio, è il nostro mestiere INNOVA & COSMO-SkyMed 5/6 REMOTE SENSING GIS GPS HPC R&D INNOVA ’s expertise under the COSMO-SkyMed mission and various ASI-INNOVA contracts is currently being focused on the development of tools and prototypal multi-mission SAR applications. <ul><li>SAR Workbench (SWB) is a modular desktop application for the management </li></ul><ul><li>of multi-mission SAR data. The main modules are: </li></ul><ul><li>GUI (GSDView); </li></ul><ul><li>Ingestion/data exchange; </li></ul><ul><li>QA (Quality Analysis); </li></ul><ul><li>Data processing. </li></ul>The GUI component (called GSDView) is a multi-mission data viewer that includes facilities and graphical interfaces for controlling other modules. It currently supports a large number of SAR missions COSMO-SkyMed, TerraSAR-X, Radarsat 1/2, PALSAR, ERS 1/2, and ENVISAT. It can also handle optical data such as the ones from ENVISAT/MERIS sensor and ALOS/AVNIR-2. A basic version of GSDView is available on http://gsdview.sourceforge.net/
  10. 10. Give us space, it’s our business . Dateci spazio, è il nostro mestiere INNOVA & COSMO-SkyMed 6/6 REMOTE SENSING GIS GPS HPC R&D GSDView and SARWorkbench are being used to develop Change Detection, Moving Target Detection, Vehicle Velocity Estimation and Enhanced Spotlight Interferometric applications. Various techniques can be used to detect changes in a specific area under observation, some of which are quite complex. A very simple method consists in generating multi-temporal RGB (Red, Green and Blue) images in which changes in the scene result in coloured regions. For a human photo-interpreter it is by far easier to work on RGB images rather than on sets of gray-scale images. SAR interferometry (InSAR) is a very powerful technique that is at the base of a large number of applications: generation of digital elevation models, change detection, geophysical monitoring of natural hazards, for example earthquakes, volcanoes and landslides, and also in structural engineering, in particular monitoring of subsidence and structural stability. The availability of high resolution SAR data opens new perspectives for new InSAR technique applications and improvement of existing ones.
  11. 11. Give us space, it’s our business . Dateci spazio, è il nostro mestiere InterRisk REMOTE SENSING GIS GPS HPC R&D The overall objectives of InterRisk were to develop an open system architecture for interoperable, GMES monitoring and forecasting services for marine and coastal areas. This architecture has been implemented in a network of services for several European regional areas. The service is based on satellite data, in situ data and numerical models needed to monitor and forecast marine environmental crisis events. The network of interoperable services has been developed as a contribution to implementation of GMES. InterRisk is an FP6 programme named “ Interoperable GMES Service for Environmental Risk Management in Marine and Coastal Areas of Europe ”.
