SIMshore proposes a prototype service for operational update of the littoral topo-bathymetry making use of remote sensing of the ocean surface. Particular emphasis is assigned to bathymetry derivation from the ocean colour, as well as from inversion of the surface wave field observed at low altitude with aerial autonomous vehicles
SIMShore is clearly user-driven, resulting from many requests of users for littoral bathymetry.
SIMOcean aims at developing a pre-commercial operational service with data and algorithms derived contribution of all partners (and other stakeholders to be attracted to the consortium), and elaborate value-added downstream products of wide economic application.
The SIMShore project will start with a preliminary preparatory phase of two months, where the project''s assumptions will be consolidated both from the business (Task 5.1 Business Assessment and Requirements) and technical (Task 5.2 Use Cases Definition) viewpoints.
The project will then proceed in three sequential cycles consisting of successive stages of A) development, B) testing; C) data collection; D) validation (in ATI4); and E) testing of operations (in ATI5), including business aspects.
Each of these cycles will gradually evolve in the hardware platform and payload will (ATI2), algorithms for geo-referencing, bathymetry extraction, data processors and system (ATI3).
