It includes (in the M1C2.4.2 intervention) objectives dedicated to space activities for Earth Observation, to be achieved in the period 2022-2026, in particular the creation of an end-to-end Space System, called IRIDE, composed of: Upstream Segment, Downstream Segment and Service Segment toprovide geospatial services at national and European level.<br>The IRIDE System will, therefore, be one of the public assets developed in recent years by the investments of the PNRR and,<br>consistently, its design has been based on the needs expressed by the Italian National Authorities (whose collection is coordinated by the National Forum of Copernicus Users and represented in the “Needs Analysis” Annex to the National Earth Observation Plan) with the aim of contributing with the Geo-Spatial component to the development of products useful for the innovativeness and operation of the services provided by the Public Administration for the management of the territory,<br>emergencies and security.</p> 2024-03-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Tutela del patrimonio culturale e monitoraggio dei vulcani in Italia 2024-03-22T06:41:25+01:00 Emanuela Valerio Gianmarco Pantozzi Stefano Scancella Andrea Chessa Enrico Ciracì <p>IRIDE represents one of the most relevant European space programs in the field of Earth observation. Its implementation will take place in Italy on the initiative of the Government, thanks to the resources of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR) integrated by the funds of the National Complementary Plan (PNC). In this context, the commitment of NHAZCA S.r.l. is focused on the protection of the national cultural heritage and on the monitoring of Italian volcanoes. To this purpose, the service aims to improve the understanding of the ground displacement processes that affect volcanic areas and which can have direct effects on our cultural heritage, using high resolution SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) data, acquired from the<br>constellations Sentinel-1 (ESA), COSMO-SkyMed (ASI) and SAOCOM (CONAE - Comisión Nacional de Actividades Espaciales), and applying to them an Advanced SAR Differential Interferometry (A-DInSAR) technique. Therefore, starting from the deformation maps and time series obtained, the next step involves providing some tools that help the End-User in understanding and interpreting the data; these will involve the generation of specific geospatial products, which will consist of spatiotemporal anomaly maps, differential deformation maps and other useful statistical information.</p> 2024-03-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2024 IRIDE: Innovazione e Sostenibilità 2024-03-22T07:36:19+01:00 Giovanni Sylos Labini Massimo Zotti Eduard Royer <p>IRIDE, a cutting-edge constellation in the Earth Observations scenario, stands out for its ability to integrate optical,<br>SAR and hyperspectral sensors under a single command system, creating new opportunities for the operational use of<br>satellite data. The project was born and developed thanks to the PNRR program, which directed its development and<br>defined the implementation methods, following an AGILE method inspired by the software development practices of the<br>same name.<br>Below we develop the challenges and opportunities of this program through a lens particularly focused on the Italian<br>industrial landscape. This analysis aims to explore IRIDE as a catalyst of innovation and growth for the national industry<br>in the sector. From this point of view, the importance of the project emerges not only as a significant technological undertaking, but as a milestone that marks a turning point for the Italian industrial ecosystem in Earth observation.</p> 2024-03-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Intervista a Guido Levrini 2024-03-22T09:23:49+01:00 Edoardo Carlucci <p>Interview with Guido Levrini, already ESA Programme Manager for the IRIDE Constellation.</p> 2024-03-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2024 TRANSGLOBAL CAR EXPEDITION 2024-03-22T10:59:20+01:00 Maxim Artamonov Paola Catapano Andrew Comrie-Picard James Devine Rosy Mondardini <p>Through exploration, we want to contribute to scientific knowledge and collect data that will change our understanding of the universe, engaging individuals, organizations, and people along this extraordinary journey.<br>At a time of crucial change for our survival on the planet, we feel compelled to contribute and engineer new and brilliant solutions to keep the earth’s inhabitants healthy and human civilization to thrive.&nbsp;</p> 2024-03-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2024 La sfida di IRIDE 2024-03-22T06:19:11+01:00 Fabrizio Bernardini 2024-03-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2024
