    B5. SYMPOSIUM ON INTEGRATED APPLICATIONS

    Space systems are more and more involved in the delivery of global utilitarian services to end-users. The concept of Integrated Applications encompasses the simultaneous use of basic space services and technologies. This symposium will address various aspects of integrated applications. Integrated applications combine different space systems (Earth observation, navigation, telecommunications, etc) with airborne and ground-based systems to deliver solutions to local, national and global needs. They exploit the synergies between different data sources to provide the right information at the right time to the right user in a cost-effective manner and deliver the data to users in a readily usable form. The goal of the symposium is to enable the development of end-to-end solutions by connecting the communities that are driving toward end-to-end solutions with those that are developing enabling technologies for integrated applications. For the purposes related to the small satellites, please refer also to the session B4.4. For issues related to integrated sensor systems featuring for instance cross-platform compatibility, please direct contributions to session B4.7.

    B5.1. Tools and Technology in Support of Integrated Applications

    The session will focus on specific systems, tools and technology in support of integrated applications and address the various issues associated with the design of space and ground systems, the kind of data they collect, how they collect data, and how the data are integrated and distributed to address key user needs. Possible topics include: ground-truthing of space data; innovative, low-cost tools for space data distribution and access; new ways of distributing integrated data products; data fusion and visualization tools especially those using COTS systems; managing integrated applications programmes; education and outreach for integrated programmes, etc…

    B5.2. Integrated Applications End-to-End Solutions

    The session will be a forum for end-to-end solutions, including case studies, proof-of-concept missions, and current projects that provide, or could provide, innovative user-driven solutions. Applications that combine ground- and space-based data sources with models to address specific user requirements will be presented. These examples can cover a variety of domains, like disaster/crisis monitoring and management, energy, food security, space situational awareness, transportation, health, etc. The user needs, the structure of the user communities, the value chain, the business case and the sustainability of the solutions are among the many aspects that can be considered. Examples of projects with established partnerships and fluent working relationships between space and non-space stakeholders.
