Foreshore Assessment using Space Technology (FAST)

Foreshore Assessment using Space Technology (FAST) is a project funded by the European Union's (EU) Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) for research, technological development and demonstration. It was conducted from 2014-2018 by the University of Cambridge, the independent Deltares institute, the University of Câdiz, the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ) and the National Research and Development Institute for Marine Geology and Geoecology (GeoEcoMar)

FAST is developing down-stream services for the European Earth Observation Programme Copernicus to support cost-effective, nature-based shoreline protection against flooding and erosion. One major tool is the MI-SAFE viewer which provides users with access to map layers and wave/flood modelling services concerning coastal flood and erosion risks.
