A case study: the FAROS project on ONDA

IPTSAT and Lazio Connect (a Copernicus Relay contributing to spreading awareness and knowledge about Copernicus across and outside the EU) had a first opportunity to test the ONDA Virtual Servers during the Copernicus Hackathon focused on Sustainable Development Goals which took place in Villorba, Italy, on 5-7 October 2018.
IPTSAT then had a further chance to assess the ONDA platform in the frame of our Free Trial Access programme.
They therefore decided to transfer their application permanently on the ONDA Virtual [...]

The WASDI application is fully operational

Further to our recent news release ACROTEC Foundation keeps working with ONDA, we are pleased to inform you that the WASDI service is now fully operational and it has been integrated with 2 processors of CIMA, one of the centres of competence of the Italian Civil Protection Department.
WASDI is the “Web Advanced Space Developer Interface” allowing users to search satellite data, visualise them on line, run algorithms, and display and evaluate the results.

The ESB Global Mapping application, developed on ONDA

The Earth Starts Beating Global Mapping application has been developed on the ONDA platform and is available from our Marketplace.
It provides the interactive visualization of global time series of Sentinel-3 data about the variation on the ground of geophysical quantities linked to the health of our Planet – e.g. the chlorophyll content in vegetation, the amount of water vapour, etc.
Check on ESB the full list of the available land maps.
The global mosaics (Level 3) are generated by processing the [...]

ONDA sponsors the FOSS4G 2019 EO Data Challenge

As part of the FOSS4G 2019 Conference taking place in Bucharest on 26-30 August 2019, the EO data challenge is intended to attract the best ideas on using open source software and open data to produce useful solutions for EO data management and processing.
ONDA is happy to sponsor the competition by providing the Virtual Infrastructure and support during the challenge and also by contributing to one of the available prizes with a free access package to our Services.

ONDA for the S2IGI project

S2IGI (Sistema Satellitare Integrato per la Gestione Incendi) is an Integrated Satellite System for the Management of Fires, financed by Sardinia Region and developed by Nurjana Technologies, CNR-IBIMET and the Aerospace Engineering School of the Sapienza University of Rome (SIA).
S2IGI aims to contribute to the reduction of damages caused by forest fires to the environment and to the economic activities through the development of an informative prototype system that integrates innovative techniques of data elaboration provided from satellite technology - prioritising [...]

ONDA for the Copernicus Start-up Programme

ONDA actively supports initiatives such as the Copernicus Accelerator and the Hackathons – both part of the Copernicus Start-up Programme of the European Commission’s DG Growth – which foster innovation, the development of new Earth observation (EO) applications and ultimately economic growth.

The Copernicus Accelerator offers a business development scheme for 50 start-ups and entrepreneurs with innovative ideas that involve the use Copernicus data or services.
ONDA is participating to the DIAS Voucher Scheme, allowing the Mentees access to our Services for the [...]

IREA chooses ONDA for large scale InSAR data processing

IREA, the Institute for Electromagnetic Sensing of the Environment of the National Research Council (CNR) of Italy, has selected ONDA, through a public invitation to tender open to the DIAS platforms, to provide cloud resources for processing Sentinel-1 data.
IREA has already been using the ONDA platform as an early adopter for the development of surface deformation products implementing interferometric SAR (InSAR) techniques.
“We are very pleased to continue our collaboration with ONDA,” said Riccardo Lanari, the IREA director. “We believe [...]

ACROTEC Foundation keeps working with ONDA

Having been one of the first ONDA Early Adopters, ACROTEC has now chosen to continue using the ONDA services for the evolution of their WASDI project.
The WASDI (Web Advanced Space Developer Interface) application, currently accessible on the ONDA Marketplace, is the result of an ESA project within the General Support Technology Programme (GSTP).
The platform is developed by ACROTEC Technology Foundation (controlled by CIMA Research Foundation) together with FadeOut Software.
The project aims at developing an infrastructure allowing experts and end-users [...]

EOPEN Project at BiDS’19

The EOPEN project, funded within the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme, was presented at the 2019 Conference on Big Data from Space, taking place in Munich from 19 to 21 February.
The objective of EOPEN is to provide a platform - targeted at non-expert Earth Observation data users as well as experts and the SME community - that makes Copernicus data and services easy to use for Big Data applications.
In order to fuse data from diverse sources and manage a [...]
