The MoDeM-IVM project

  The aim of the MoDeM-IVM project is to develop a new, interactive, web-based Decision Support System (DSS) for integrated management of the vineyard.   The DSS is composed by an integrated system (wireless sensors and hand-held devices) for real-time monitoring of the vineyard components (air, soil, plants, pests and diseases) and a web-tool that analyses these data by using advanced modelling techniques for the key processes involved in the vineyard management. The web-tool also optimises decision making based on a cost-benefit...

WATERGOLF: Wireless distributed intelligent system for irrigation optimisation and early turf disease prevention and treatment on golf courses

Recreational water use is a very small but growing percentage of total water use and is mostly tied to reservoirs. If a reservoir has a water level higher than designated for consumption, then the excess water could be categorized as recreational usage. A report from the European Environment Agency (EEA) revealed that Europe has so far concentrated on increasing the supply of water rather than exploring ways to limit its demand. Golf courses are often targeted as using excessive amounts of water, especially in drier regions and some...

RXM-25 X-Band Polarimetric Doppler Weather Radar

The RXM-25 is a dual-polarization Doppler weather radar operating at X-band, designed to cover a range between 30 and 50 km at very high sampling resolutions and offer state-of-the-art radar data products. The RXM-25 is prepared to operate as a single radar unit or as a member of a radar network, allowing both manual or automated control of all radar operational settings. Designed to operate at high scanning velocities both during antenna repositioning and antenna scanning through weather, the RXM-25 radars allow arbitrary motion over the...

MARG is promoted on the Horizon 2020 website

Since the ancient Greeks first began collecting rainwater in pots in about 500 BC, little has changed in how basic rainfall records are made. While there are more precise measurement methods, for example by using parts of multi-purpose radars operated by large weather services, they are complex and expensive for local users. Now, an alternative is possible thanks to a European Union (EU)-funded research project developing an accurate, affordable, real time, and user-friendly system to monitor both the spatial distribution and the intensity of...
