ANTARES - The European Space Agency IRIS programme
ANTARES (phase B of the ESA IRIS programme) is all about satellite communication with airplanes.
The vision of SOCIETIES is to develop a complete, integrated Community Smart Space (CSS), which extends pervasive systems beyond the individual to dynamic communities of users. CSSs will embrace on-line community services, such as Social Networking in order to offer new and powerful ways of working, communicating and socialising.
OSS – Ocean Space Surveillance
Environmental monitoring is a key element in sustainable exploitation of marine resources. The environment is under pressure from e.g. shipping and offshore oil and gas activities, and there is a large need for improved methods for monitoring and management. OSS aims to contribute to this by developing technology for continuous monitoring in time and space – by combining underwater wireless sensor networks and advanced ocean models for hydrodynamics, biology and emissions.
