The aim of the SOSI project was to demonstrate the use of Technology Service Support Environment (SSE) for the development of services offering access to distributed data sources and their mutual connections. The purpose of the SOSI-CZ was the implementation of the Czech national portal based on SSE technology.


The project was oriented on development and implementation of relevant Earth Observation-based services in the Czech Republic to support existing hydrological monitoring activities, especially snow melt and surface water runoff contributing to flooding events.

Sentinel-2: SPECTRA

The main goal of the Sentinel-2: SPECTRA project was to design and test the operational algorithm for quantitative estimation of the green foliar pigments in canopies of Norway Spruce stands from spectral image data of satellite instrument CHRIS and future Sentinel-2 missions. The experiment in the mountainous region of the Czech Republic helped to design a new procedure for retrieving precise data on the health of spruce forests.


The GRID project has demonstrated the effective use of Grid technologies for processing of radar data from satellites Envisat ASAR sensor. This was achieved by porting of miscellaneous SAR data handling SW packages to Grid and by development of related high level SAR-based functionality available to users through the “Grid Processing-On-Demand” (G-POD) web portal.

Advanced SCOS-2000 monitoring

The aim of the SCOS-2000 Advanced Monitoring project was to verify latest technologies for monitoring and visualization of telemetry data and commands in the satellite system SCOS-2000. The project also addressed the application of the resulting analysis and prototypes in the context of a new European Ground Operation Software architecture (EGOS).

Proba-2 TPMU

An instrument for measuring thermal plasma in space TMPU was designed and developer at the Institute of Atmospheric Physics AS CR. The flight model was manufactured also by the company Czech Space Research Centre (CSRC) in Brno. The device will capture scientific data for research of thermal plasma in the vicinity of the Earth.


The Dual Segmented Langmuir Probe (DSLP) is one of the four scientific experiments on board the ESA satellite Proba-2. The DSLP instrument has been developed and manufactured in the Czech Republic by a scientific-industrial consortium.


Project Image IIM-TS has extended the capabilities of system for satellite images analysis (KEO - Knowledge-centered Earth Observation), which is carried out at the ESA ESRIN, by comparision of images in the time sequence. These methods are useful particulary for the change detection.


Signal in Space through the Internet (SISNeT) is name of technology that disseminates accurate navigation data from EGNOS system through the Internet. A new-generation data server which is the main pillar of the services has been developed, as well as the software called SBAS TeACHER who serves as a tool for SBAS messages editing.

EGNOS Edutools

The main objectives of the project were development of educational programmes, which nowadays help to easily understand EGNOS system and its principles and also functioning GNSS systems in general.
