The objective of this project is to define and develop innovative solutions based on the exploitation of images captured by satellites and unmanned aircrafts’ airborne sensors for the acquisition of information on the territory and the management of the municipality’s competence plans. Such solutions will support both the administration and freelancers that cooperate in the phase of planning and editing of plans and in the phase of verification of their implementation. The project aims at facilitating and enriching the process of creation of the town planning project of the municipality, from the editing of the cognitive framework of the Programmatic Preliminary Document to the following adoption of the PUG and its activation through the PUE. A new optimized, fast and economical editing process will be defined thanks to the enhancement of technological innovation.
Software applications will be developed allowing to manage and provide images acquired by satellite or by drones’ airborne sensors to professionals (engineers, geologists, …) for analysis and elaboration activities. These applications, based on Rethicus (Planetek Italia solution), will also allow to develop the cartographic documentation and to make it available to the Municipality of Bari (this project’s end user) for its territory management activities.
An experimental air navigation services environment (UTM), integrated with a DTA and Leonardo laboratory for aerial simulation, will allow drone operators to design urban set missions and execute formation activities. This for the respect of current air rules and in order to obtain flight authorization for the provision of air services in safety conditions. The project will reach its completion with a demonstration of drone-based services in an urban environment for territory inspection. SAPERE also foresees the constitution of the Drone Living Lab, which is meant to provide the Municipality of Bari with services based on aerospace technologies in the logics of the Smart City.
- Application of prototypical software for the monitoring of stability infrastructures, hydric in particular
- Application of prototypical software for the monitoring of the quality of waters and sea dumps
- Application of prototypical software for the monitoring of soil sealing
- Application of prototypical software for the monitoring of thermal micro-zoning
- Application of prototypical UTM software for the provision of service for the management of very low-level air traffic related to UAVs
The project is also meant to make an experimental system of air navigation services available for drone operations within the “Very Low Level” (below 500ft) airspace. Such application will be installed in the DTA/Leonardo laboratory for the simulation of air operations located in Grottaglie.
Among the final impacts that are taken in consideration, some are listed hereunder: enhancement of the capabilities of the public manager in the management and planning of public soil, reduction of costs related to maintenance of public infrastructures, enhancement of the efficiency of urban assets (i.e. hydric ducts, energy efficiency of public buildings, … ), increase of citizens’ life quality in terms of exposure to risk, increase of capabilities of the regional entrepreneurial fabric, increase of employment opportunity for highly qualified figures (graduates, doctoral graduates), increase of the competitiveness of the regional aerospace system on a national and European level and overall possibility to contribute to the development of the industrial and social European system.
