FOCUS project kick started!

FOCUS is a H2020 project aimed at demonstrating an innovative extension of our existing forest monitoring service (www.silvisense.com) using a combination of Copernicus Sentinel-2 imagery with hyperspectral data captured by UAV platforms. The new product line will focus on providing its customers with earlier detection of forest disease outbreaks, threatening 70.1% of Portuguese forests.

The EU funded project, which started on January 1st, 2018, is supported by 1,77 million Euros over 3 years and brings together a total of 3 partners:

  • University of Coimbra (Portugal)
  • Science & Technology AS (Norway)
  • VITO NV (Belgium).
