Coordinating and Monitoring Quality Information for the Copernicus Services: Case Study with Optical Data.

Copernicus

Magellium and ESA are pleased to annonce a new publication of Sébastien Saunier and al. in IEEE related to quality coordination and monitoring for Copernicus services.

Abstract : One of the key elements of Copernicus is its Space Component (CSC). Beyond the development of the Sentinel missions, the CSC also entails the coordination of assets made available by the data providers of Copernicus Contributing Mission (CCMs) to implement a synergistic and complete operational system-of-systems in Europe for the provision of Earth Observation (EO) data. In the framework of Copernicus, ESA is in charge of developing an efficient and harmonised system to facilitate access to relevant EO data by the Copernicus Service Projects (CSPs). This is achieved through the implementation of the Copernicus Space Component Data Access (CSCDA).

Magellium partner of RTE for GIS projects

logo RTE

Magellium has been selected as the key partner to provide assistance to RTE for its GIS projects within the Industrial Department Tool for a period of five years (two year optional). A team of 15 to 20 GIS experts and engineers of Magellium will work in the premises of RTE (Ile de France) with managers in defining, structuring, leveraging technical choices and steering GIS needs of RTE.

The IT department of RTE Industrial Tool program provides services to 6.000 users, particularly in operations, maintenance and engineering:

  • Manage RTE industrial legacy data,
  • Manage maintenance operation tasking,
  • Facilitate environment regulation handling in the activities,
  • Provide calculations capabilities for energy transportation engineering.

Magellium Launches LocKeeper, a vision-based embedded solution for geo-location

logo_locKeeperHDAfter several months of development, laboratory & real condition testing, Magellium is pleased to announce the launch of LocKeeper, an vision-based embedded solution for geo-location for autonomous vehicles. This solution has been developed in partnership with DelairTech in the frame of a RAPID project of the DGA (French MoD procurement agency). A flight demonstration on mini-drone was conducted recently in the presence of experts of the French MoD who cheered system performance – first no GPS flight of an autonomous mini UAV in France.

LocKeeper solution makes autonomous vehicles less dependent on GPS availability and provides a better geo-location accuracy. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information.

Philae is waking up… the exploration of Chury about to resume ?

rosetta-mag-02-descent

After 7 months of waiting, Rosetta has just captured signs of life Philae robot. It seems that the robot is out of hibernation for several days now and is ready to get back to work. Rosetta will have to change now its trajectory to optimize its radio link with Philae, without compromising its own scientific activities and safety.

Regarding the relevance and quality of the work conducted by Magellium for CNES last year on image processing and analysis of CIVA and ROLIS instruments, Magellium will be again on board to help scientists to control Philae and to characterize Chury environment.

Magellium is proud to contribute to this human, scientific and technical adventure.

Magellium honored for his collaboration with CNES

CNES
The policy of development of the intellectual property of CNES (National Space French Agency) meets the demand of his guardianship to increase the economic impact of the French public research.

To this end, CNES has put in place a process of identification of industrials having particularly valued the results of the preparation of the future CNES and retained Magellium at the Honour Roll 2013 (10 winners) who were able to develop the results of their work with CNES and/or CNES intellectual property transfer with economic benefits (sales, jobs…).

Final demonstration of DERIC project (RAPID DGA) – 5 & 6 March 2015 at Camp de Souge (33- France)

Drone Delair-tech

 

Delair-Tech and his partners Airbus and Magellium organize the final demonstration of the DERIC project (RAPID DGA) on the 5 & 6 March 2015 at the military training camp “camp de Souge” (33-France) under the aegis of the DGA.

Several flights of DT-26 and DT-18 long distance civil drones of Delair-Tech will be held during those two days to demonstrate advanced technical solutions developed within the framework of this project:

  • Overview of DT- 26 and DT- 18 systems,
  • Vision-based navigation “incremental localization” mode (development Magellium),
  • Vision-based navigation mode “absolute location + incremental” (development Magellium),
  • Remote Sensing (optronics pod for automatic vehicles or people detection (IR and movement) with real-time image transmission of “alarms” on the ground (Magellium co- development),
  • Real-time air-ground communication with 3G and Iridium.

Reprocessing of LANDSAT archives

Landsat

In the framework of the reprocessing of MSS (Multispectral Scanner), TM (Thematic Mapper), ETM+ (Enhanced Thematic Mapper+) LANDSAT archives and with the approval of ESA, Magellium is putting online a database of “level 0” product qualification that makes it possible to anticipate “level 1” product quality with a fine level of characterization. The approach has been acknowledged recently by the USGS.

The database is accessible at http://bit.ly/1uYP1aL. The report search is possible from the archive name or from the user product (WRS scene, observation date…). The database is complete and contains all QC reports of LANDSAT products distributed by ESA (except LANDSAT8).

This work has been realized in the framework of LTDP programs (Long Term Data Preservation) of ESA (http://earth.esa.int/gscb/ltdp/).

Individual estimation of X ray dose received by patient during digital mammography

PhD mammography

On October 22th, Sophie Ribes has received her Ph.D. degree in radiophysics and medical imaging from Paul Sabatier University of Toulouse. Her work was founded and co-supervised by Magellium. The purpose of the thesis was the individual estimation of the X-ray dose received by patients during mammography.

Sophie has developed a methodology to estimate the 3D configuration of breast components (skin, gland, muscle and fat) during the mammography exam and estimate by Monte-Carlo simulation the radiation received by the gland.
