Winner - 2018 Copernicus Masters Emergency Management Challenge
“TSAR AI was selected on the basis of its high potential to contribute concretely to the development of the Copernicus emergency service, showing a high maturity both as a technical project and a business structure”.
Françoise Villette - Policy Officer, European Commission
Winner - 2017 Copernicus Masters Security Challenge
"The jury selected OPTOSS as the winner of this challenge because it deals with large amounts of observational data under stressful conditions. These conditions increase the risk of failing to detect a threat. In this context OPTOSS may close the current gap that exists for the Copernicus Emergency and Security Services with regard to situational awareness and intelligence in critical situations. We congratulate the winner & wish the project a quick uptake."
Ivan Konaktchiev - Policy Officer, European Commission
The OPT/NET team is proud to have been recognised by the European Commission as a first-class innovator! Our first H2020 EIC Accelerator (Horizon 2020: the EU’s research and innovation funding programme) proposal was deemed worthy of investment, however budget limits ultimately prevented us from being funded at this stage. As such, we have been awarded the Seal of Excellence, which recognises the value of the proposal and helps other funding bodies take advantage of the extremely stringent Horizon 2020 evaluation process.
Top 30 in the Global IBM Watson AI Xprize Competition
“This competition has made it evident that the teams’ efforts to apply AI for Good not only started the trend, but created a global movement. We’re proud to see humans rallying together to build responsible and useful AI that will solve some of the grandest challenges of our time.”
Amir Banifatemi, General Manager for Innovation and Growth at XPRIZE
We built the award-winning TSAR AI platform - to help emergency & disaster response teams work quicker, smarter, & more effectively through the use of Earth Observation Data.
TSAR AI has gained traction with the European Commission as well as the renowned X-Prize competition.
The MultifunctiONal aI plaTform fOr eaRth obsErvation Data (MONITORED AI) provides a variety of services to help monitor arable farmlands quicker, smarter, and more effectively. We empower users by combining the analysis of massive amounts of rich geospatial data with in-situ sensor data, providing a holistic and insightful dashboard overview of their most prized assets.
As part of a broader consortium of 16 European companies & research partners — we were granted €8.4M by the European Commission to participate in a 3Y H2020 project that develops an AI platform for the monitoring and analysis of mine sites across Europe in order to improve the safety, environmental impact and profitability of mines by creating a platform that combines Earth observation technologies with on-site sensing.
In June of 2020, OPT/NET was awarded a contract by the European Space Agency to research the technical & commercial feasibility of our proposed solution to illegal fishing. The AI-driven solution - MONITORED AI - integrates Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellite imagery and Automatic Identification System (AIS) data to autonomously detect dark vessels and spot suspicious behavior at sea.
