Connect by CNES: NewSpace responds to major territorial challenges

21 September 2023, 9:00 22:00 CET

Would you like to discover the potential of space-derived services and data for the operational missions of your institution or local authority? Whether your activity is linked to urban planning, technical services, ISD/GIS, risk management and security or any other relevant operational department, you are most certainly concerned.

Earth observation: regional planning, water resource management, air and water pollution, urban planning, heat island management…

Telecommunications: global connectivity in white zones, solutions for connected objects, managing the digital divide…

Geolocation / Navigation (GNSS): Fleet management, HR and equipment, participative solutions, guiding users to points of interest…

This event was designed specifically for local authorities and associated structures by Connect By Cnes in partnership with the Nice Côte d’Azur Metropolis and with the support of SAFE Cluster.

The aim of this event is to present how earth observation data is used in France. It will also provide an opportunity to present the AppliSat initiative, which brings together the national community of public-sector users of spatial data.

One of the main goals of the event is to show local players how space can help them meet five new challenges: monitoring urban tree growth, managing isolated sensors related to the environment or other issues, assessing the risk of collapsing buildings, detection of litter, help with water resource management.
