Remote Sensing

Epsilon Italia uses remotely sensed data obtained from scientific and commercial satellite sensors to:
• Develop remote sensing applications for the territorial control, the environmental monitoring and the management of natural and anthropogenic resources
• Process remotely sensed optical multi and hyper spectral and radar data, at different spatial resolution
Calibrate models and develop algorithms to assess geo-bio-physical parameters

Projects

MAteriali Compositi di POlimeri e FIbre Naturali, in co-operation with the University of Calabria (Chemistry and F.C Department – Mechanical, Energy and Managerial Engineering Departmentand) , ZLAB srl and Borrone srl, co-funded under POR Calabria 2007-2014, Sector 3 “Research, Teaching, University”. Project coordinated by Epsilon Italia. The main project aim is to enhance the broom as raw material for the production of insulating panels, both thermally and acoustically, to be used in building industry and boating. Epsilon Italia is responsible to develop new techniques that use satellite images for detecting spontaneous broom thickets.

Mediterranean Fuel Maps Geodatabase for Wildland & Forest Fire Safety”, co-funded by the LIFE+ 2010 Programme of the European Commission and coordinated by Epsilon International SA (GR). Within this project Epsilon Italia is responsible for the development and test of the remote sensing applications in Italy
