7SHIELD project using ONDA platform

The 7SHIELD project, which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, addresses the Safety and Security Standards of Space Systems, ground Segments and Satellite data assets.
The project aims at providing a holistic framework enabling the deployment of innovative services for cyber-physical protection of ground segments, such as e-fences, passive radars and laser technologies, multimedia AI technologies, cyber-attack detection mechanisms and cyber and physical Threat Intelligence.
Dealing with the various aspects of whole lifecycle of [...]

Access to Advanced API exclusively in Legacy mode

We wish to inform our users that as from Thursday 15 June 2020, access to products through the Advanced API (ENS - Elastic Node Server) will only be available in the “Legacy mode”, that is accessing data in their original product format – the possibility to access to products in the custom ENS format will therefore be disabled.
ENS extends traditional File or Object Storages by exposing not only standard Directories and Files but breaking them down further in a logical [...]

New images processed on ONDA showing the effects of the coronavirus lockdown on air quality

Further to our first article on The effects of the coronavirus lockdown on air quality: a comparative analysis of satellite data, more images have been processed on the ONDA platform in order to compare the presence of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) in the atmosphere before and during the coronavirus lockdown.
 
Data from Sentinel-5P have been used to map the average distribution of the tropospheric concentration of NO2 from multiple acquisitions during the period 15 March-15 April 2020, and compared to the [...]

The effects of the coronavirus lockdown on air quality: a comparative analysis of satellite data

March 2019

March 2020

Several images have been processed on the ONDA platform with the aim to compare the presence of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) in the atmosphere before and during the current lockdown in Europe.
Satellite data
For this purpose, data from the Sentinel-5P TROPOMI instrument have been used: the spectrometer maps a multitude of trace gases, such as nitrogen dioxide, ozone, formaldehyde, sulphur dioxide, methane, carbon monoxide and aerosols.
NO2 and lockdown
NO2 emissions are a major air pollutant, and are closely linked to [...]

In order to strengthen our contribution and provide a thorough assistance to our users, we are offering, through our ONDA 4 Education service, a free online webinar, available for a maximum number of 500 participants, on how to access the ONDA platform and how to process Copernicus Sentinel-5P data for [...]

Use case: ARESYS new time-domain SAR processor developed on ONDA

ARESYS, Advanced Remote Sensing Systems, is a Politecnico di Milano spin-off company, operating since 2003 in the field of digital signal processing with particular focus on remote sensing and geophysics.
ARESYS has a long experience in the field of generic SAR end-to-end simulations with a large variety of applications, such as space-borne imaging, altimetry, automotive, air-borne and ground-borne imaging.
ARESYS now provides a general purpose time-domain SAR processor.
Time-domain algorithms are notoriously computationally heavy and ARESYS is exploiting the ONDA DIAS services [...]

ONDA supports users monitoring COVID-19 impact

In the context of the EU Space response to Coronavirus, ONDA and its Partners are pleased to support organizations interested in developing analyses that can help public authorities and citizens to tackle the COVID-19 emergency we are all facing.
To this end, ONDA and its market leading Cloud provider OVHcloud will make available additional free computing resources to empower the existing Free Trial Access programme, which includes free access to cloud resources equipped with a graphical Remote Desktop interface and [...]

OpenStack API Update postponed

With reference to our recent operational news on the planned OpenStack API Update, we wish to inform our users that, due to the current exceptional circumstances and in order to ensure that every user is in the best situation to handle the change, it has been decided to postpone the end of life of the Keystone version 2.0 API.
What do users have to do?
There is no impact on those users already using Keystone version 3.0 API.
For those users currently using [...]

ONDA in support of the MAFIS project by GMATICS

GMATICS is a Rome based start-up that develops and operates systematic geospatial application services exploiting Earth observation data, integrated with other types of information, and using Artificial Intelligence and cloud services.
Within the MAFIS (Multiple Actor Forest Information Service) project – funded by ESA (European Space Agency) through the EOEP-5 initiative –, GMATICS is developing an integrated methodology that combines multi-temporal Earth observation satellite data as well as weather satellite data within a forest growth model.
MAFIS’ aim is to provide [...]
