Who are we?

Our Company

With a 1,2 Million € capital and more than 100 employees, we operate from Belgium with two permanent establishments, one in Germany and one in The Netherlands - close to the operational (ESOC) and technological (ESTEC) centres of ESA  - and with projects in Italy, Spain, France and UK.   We are involved in the most important European space projects ensuring  the  highest  standards  of  quality,  safety  and  reliability.  You  can  find  more

The Project

The SYMPA Project aims at developing up to a pre-operational level and test with the end users communities a wide and consistent number of location based applications for maritime institutions (Marine protected areas, Coastguard) small-medium size commercial operators (fishery fleets, tourist boats, divers, charters) and leisure boat users. This constitutes an important innovation as almost all of the identified applications are not currently existing for the addressed market. Those applications shall be based on conventional portable consumer platforms (smart devices) and AIS terminals, when available on board.

 

The SYMPA Project constitutes a follow-up of the FP7 funded MEDUSE Project involving all the consortium members, which has been successfully closed  in September 2013 with a customised prototype demonstration at La Maddalena Maritime National Park in Italy. With respect to MEDUSE achievement, the aim of SYMPA is to:

 

- generalize the applications by means of implementing a common core, easily customizable for each specific market community and case, to test it as a pilot within a significant number of different validation trials, thus in parallel performing a market replication exercise in order to enable to support the overcoming of the market barrier constituted by the initial engineering cost associated with the development of a generic platform;

 

- expand the scope of applications to enlarge the potential market and reach some communities, such as the professional fishery community, which are specific subject of strategic  European  policies,  thus  fostering  the  sustainable  expansion  of  a  collaborative scenario for the adequate monitoring and control of fishery activities within areas of great environmental value.
