  1. 1. MISTRALE CAPIGI Rotterdam – 26/05/2016
  2. 2. MISTRALE at a glance Monitoring of soil moisture and water-flooded areas for agriculture and Environment using GNSS- reflectometry onboard RPAS
  3. 3. Context 20502010 300% World Food Production Needs Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
  4. 4. Context 2 x 70% 45% Food and Agriculture Organization of the United NationsWorldwide Fresh Water Withdrawals Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations 
  5. 5. What is the need ? More crop per drop Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations MORE CROP PER DROP Irrigation is critical to growing more food using less water
  6. 6. What is MISTRALE about ? Helping farmers to make better decisions on irrigation by providing them soil moisture maps Soil Moisture Maps Service
  7. 7. What is MISTRALE about ? Scientific applications (e.g., forest coverage analysis) Soil Moisture Maps Service Waterland/Flooded areas monitoring
