EC has announced the funding of the new project titled "Reaching-Out: Demonstration of EU effective large scale threat and crisis management outside the EU", coordinated by Airbus Defence and Space SAS (France). This project is funded under Horizon'2020 Framework Secure Societies topic DRS-03-2015 "Crisis management topic 3: Demonstration activity on large scale disasters and crisis management and resilience of EU external assets against major identified threats or causes of crisis". Project duration is 39 months, starting in 2016.

RFSAT will participate as a member of the "Supplier Platform" to demonstrate its micro-UAS based aerial day-night surveillance, environmental monitoring and 3D modelling of large areas resulting from its ongoing activities in the security domain bringing in also multi-modal user interfaces and mixed-reality technologies from its earlier FP7-ICT-StrokeBack project.


 UgCS from SPH Engineering

SPH Engineering offers unmanned systems integration services: building, acquiring and consulting on selection of air-frames, autopilots, payloads for particular application and performing proof of concept projects and software development. UgCS is a software for central management of all types and manufacturers of unmanned vehicles, enabling to control one or a fleet of drones on a single mission in multi operator mode and multi-platform environments. Ease of integration and adding support for new vehicles or payloads is achieved by modular architecture of UgCS. UgCS Educational Program supports both - drone operator training and research activities by providing ground station software for different UAV applications. UgCS is used in applications such as – search and rescue missions, environmental projects, terrain mapping, research of sensor applications and more!


As of 2017, the RFSAT has joined the UgCS Educational program in order to jointly develop solutions for autonomous multi-UAV (swarm) operations and targeting crisis situations, but applicable also to a wide range of mission critical operations. Initial developments will be demonstrated withing the ongoing FP7-SEC-AF3 and H2020-SEC-Reaching-Out projects.


RFSAT Ltd has joined the EU Alliance for Internet of Things Innovation (AIOTI).

The Alliance for the Internet of Things (AIOTI) was launched by the European Commission and various key IoT players. The AIOTI aims to give EU the lead in the Internet of Things (IoT) field creating a dynamic European IoT ecosystem. The Alliance for Internet of Things Innovation (AIOTI) was recently initiated by the European Commission in order to develop and support the dialogue and interaction among Internet of Things (IoT) various players. The overall goal of the establishment of the AlOTI is the creation of a dynamic European IoT ecosystem to unleash the potentials of the IoT.

The AIOTI will assist the European Commission in the preparation of future IoT research as well as innovation and standardisation policies. It is also going to play an essential role in the designing of IoT Large Scale Pilots, which will be funded by the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme. The members of AlOTI will jointly work on the creation of a dynamic European IoT ecosystem. This ecosystem is going to build on the work of the IoT Research Cluster (IERC) and spill over innovation across industries and business sectors of IoT transforming ideas to solutions.
