    12/2010 ongoing

    EMSA (European Maritime Safety Agency) Integrated Maritime Data Environment (IMDatE). The project aims at federating all the Enterprise IT business services into a unique SOA based system, which handles dynamic data for 100.000+ ships worldwide, with the objective of improving the quality of services offered towards maritime safety. These include search and rescue, coastal traffic control, anti-piracy, oil spill monitoring, etc. The project is developed in coordination with CLS, as a subcontractor. Frame Contract budget (currently the EMSA largest) is about 4 MEuro.

     

     

    11/2009 ongoing  

    EMSA(European Maritime Safety Agency) Clean Sea Net Data Centre (CSN-DC): it is a 4 years frame-contract for the development of a modern Data Centre mainly focussed at monitoring oil spill pollution. CSN-DC is currently a leading project in EMSA aiming at integrating multi-source heterogeneous data, in order to coordinate the whole EMSA workflow. ACS has proposed a technical solution almost entirely based on the end-to-end PDGS solutions currently installed in the main Space Agencies world-wide. ACS is prime contractor of an international industrial team, which includes GMV. Frame Contract budget is about 2 Meuro.

     

    09/2009 Ongoing

    ESA DUE DesertWatch-E: extension of the DesertWatch project (see below), to include African and Latin America countries in the analysis of desertification. ACS is prime contractor of an international consortium.

     

    11/2007 – 04/2010

    ESA User Service Next Generation (USNG): the project aims at fully redesigning the new generation of ESA user services (e.g. 3D web catalogue, automated ordering and follow-up, CRM, etc.). It represents the precursor of the ESA User Service in the Sentinel 1/2/3 and GMES Coordinated Data Access era. Besides introducing innovative technological data access paradigms, USNG integrates the ESA DAIL and exploits the HMA protocol for a multi-provider multi-platform EO data access. ACS was prime contractor of an international industrial team.

     

    04/2009 – 04/2010

    EUSC Reference Facility (RF): EUSC-RF is a multi-phased project aiming at modernisation of the EUSC Centre, for improving capacity and efficiency of early warning and crisis monitoring. Through adoption of modern interoperability standards, e.g. OGC, HMA, Reference model for Distributed Processing, BPEL Orchestrator, the RF system allows EUSC migration from an individual set of desktop applications, managed independently, towards a coordinated centre-wide Workflow Management System. ACS was prime contractor of an international industrial team.
