EU-FP7 Alert4All Project Final Demonstration

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
English

The Alert4All project, in short A4A, stands to significantly improve the effectiveness of alert communications systems in the EU, enhancing operations, enabling cooperation and fostering best practices. It will help authorities to alert citizens in crisis situations and significantly raise the number of citizens at risk reached by alert messages. This harmonised European system could play an inestimable role in limiting the negative consequences of a disaster.

ESA's new satellite expected to revolutionise communications

 Alphasat I-XL was succesfully lifted off with a modified LCT

On July 25, 2013 Alphasat I-XL was successfully lifted off on an Ariane 5 launcher from Europe's Spaceport in French Guiana with a modified LCT which will be used to test data transfer between geostationary and low Earth orbits. The Alphasat I-XL is the largest European Space Agency (ESA) telecommunications satellite to date, created with the aim of revolutionising broadband communication over the next 15 years by perfecting the application of laser transfer systems.

ESA: Mapping land deformation with satellite radar data

Greece deformation

The European Space Agency ESA has developed a new Wide Area Processor, or WAP. The data processor can create maps of land deformation from satellite radar data over larger areas and with higher precision than ever before. These maps can be used to detect and monitor geological hazards.

Factors like mining, earthquakes or volcanoes can make the ground sink or rise. In order to measure these changes, radars on satellites can map the changes on a global scale and with millimetre-precision.
