It was signed between SMA CAMPANIA (Corporation owned by the Region Campania), CIRA, MAPSAT and FACA a framework cooperation agreement for research, development and technology transfer of innovative solutions based on satellite remote sensing to be integrated into the monitoring system of the region. In this context arises the project Midas, for testing a land monitoring system through satellite imagery. The activity develops through photo-interpretation with high resolution optical satellite images to produce maps of changes in areas affected by spillage on the surface of waste.
Cira is responsible for technical/scientific coordination of the project. It also develops activities of experimentation based on innovative technologies of remote sensing for the characterization of the results on sample areas through acquisitions by drone.
