Satellites continuously orbit the earth and gather huge amounts of data, which can be highly relevant for decisions in areas like flood risk assessment and food security. We spoke to Dr Guido Vingione and Maria Gabriella Scarpino about the EOPEN project’s work in developing an open platform to enable non-expert users to make full use of satellite d...

EOPEN (https://eopen-project.eu/) is a project which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the topic EO Big Data Shift in 2017 and has a duration of 3 years, starting from November 2017. In this work, we present the concept of the project, its objectives and the lessons learnt after almo...

The identification of flooded areas over Earth Observation (EO) satellite images has paved the way to monitor damaged areas and take effective actions. Classifying all pixels of a satellite image as a flooded area or not allows for creating maps which are then used by civil protection agencies and first responders. In this work, a method, firstly i...

Altimeters are active microwave instruments for the accurate measurement of vertical distances (between the spacecraft and the altimeter footprint). The technology determines the two-way delay of the radar pulse echo from the Earth???s surface to a very high precision (to less than a nanosecond). The instrument is also able to measure the power and...
Article
The Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES) Space Component relies on a constellation of dedicated space missions (called the Sentinels, scheduled for first launch by 2013), as well as on a set of space missions not dedicated to GMES but contributing to it. In charge of optimizing access and usability of the available space-based remo...
Conference Paper
Satellite radar altimetry, which was initially designed for accurate measurements of sea surface height, has been demonstrated to be suitable for land surfaces as well. In this paper, a simplified expression of the flat surface impulse response (PFS), which enters in the computation of the radar Impulse Response (IR), has been found which is valid...
Article
The radar altimeter of the Cassini mission to Titan operates in a transition region between pulse- and beam-limited conditions. Due to the specific observation geometry, low values of mispointing angle have been found to significantly affect altimeter impulse response (IR). This involves a nonconventional formulation of the system response which is...
Article
In this paper, the processing steps carried out to transform the raw GOCE gradiometer measurements (L0) to the level of gravity gradients (L1b) are discussed. The processing can be divided into two major parts: calibration and nominal, here we focus on the nominal processing part. The nominal processing steps include the conversion of the measured...
Article
In this paper a new approach in the derivation of a closed form model for synthetic aperture radar (SAR) echo waveform over ocean surface is described. The presented model is particularly suitable to be used in SAR retracking algorithm of the incoming next generation altimeters (i.e. Cryosat and Sentinel 3) for the retrieval of ocean geophysical pa...
Article
The GOCE mission is (at time of writing) planned for launch in March 2009. This objective of this paper is to describe the initial in-orbit operations experience with the satellite and its instrumentation, focussing on the commissioning and calibration activities. Also described are the first data processing efforts, including a very preliminary es...
Chapter
Full-text available
In this paper a new approach is presented for enhancing image super-resolution via a filtered scale integral reconstruction. Based on the concept that any sensed quantity (from an instrumental point of view) must be necessarily considered as an averaged value in a suitable time and space continuum, the local reconstruction approach expects to map a...

This paper describes the Cassini RADAR PAD System, which has been de-signed and developed in the frame of Cassini-Huygens, a joint NASA/ESA/ASI mission to Saturn and its moons, responding to ASI request to process the data collected by the Cassini RADAR Altimeter. The PAD System contains the HW and SW operational tools necessary to evaluate the ins...
