Space between ships

Published 22.02.2021 - Updated 22.02.2021

Short description of the organization, including link to website:

Digital air quality management platform fusing satellite imagery, IoT, AI and data science to produce heatmaps, insights and data-based services with which to inform smart mobility, healthcare and industrial systems. Our data is available via an API or via our digital insights platform. Our customers include cities, utilities, insurers and transportation providers. We are pioneering a new global pollution management network which collects all possible emission, pollutant and GHG sources for better transparency and to leverage massive climate and health benefits.

Kind of activity:

Feasibility study and network development.

Short description

The opportunity to connect monitored data - not just modelled data - to emissions sources and more importantly to efficiency indicators - is growing in momentum and technical potential, particularly within the global logistics supply chain. The study focused on the application of satellite-based air quality data to monitoring global shipping emissions to demonstrate to industry what is currently and what will in the future be possible using higher resolution satellite imagery.

Main outputs:

A satellite technology roadmap to understand upcoming missions of relevance for air quality EO. Development of data visualizations and demonstrator products with which to approach industry partners. Commitment from a network of partners willing to pilot a new ports-based air quality monitoring concept.

What motivated you to participate as an associated partner to CoRdiNet?

The opportunity to engage with a new European and regional space network, engage with new partners and undertake research to further promote our company as a downstream pioneer in the use of Copernicus and Sentinel satellite data for air quality monitoring.

How does your proposed action/project complement the purpose of CoRdiNet? What is your contribution to the Copernicus ecosystem?

We are an ESA-sponsored startup active in the downstream space applications sector. Our use of Copernicus (Sentinel) data in many of our air quality management products and services demonstrates the value to a broad range of partners and customers including municipalities, insurers and sectors such as transportation, logistics and health. We are happy to promote the use and value of integrating Copernicus data into everyday services and leverage our network to the benefit of network partners, our peers and other young companies in the space.

What new contacts did you make and what have you learnt from your engagement with CoRdiNet?

We have been introduced to a handful of new partners in the ports / environmental monitoring space and have been introduced to a number of new environmental-focused initiatives and projects, including IMPRESSIVE.
