RSS-Hydro builds on innovation and scientific pathways to help fight floods at the global scale

Flood Waters Overwhelm Northern Madagascar

About

RSS-Hydro's main business consists of developing science-driven products and services focusing on water, floods and flood disasters worldwide, based on computer simulations, Earth Observation and space technologies. RSS-Hydro is a R&D company with its activities pivoting around three business pillars: research, development of science-driven products and expert scientific consulting. RSS-Hydro’s Research and Education Department is a government-accredited research institute that may receive public funding to host and train PhD students and postdoctoral scholars. RSS-Hydro's RED overall mission is to establish a globally influential private R&D centre in flood science, with strategic public-private partnerships, including universities and national research institutions, joint ventures as well as build strong collaborations with a number of international organizations. RSS-Hydro is a proud member of the Luxembourg Space Cluster, the Open Geospatial Consortium and EARSC. RSS-Hydro’s team consists of three senior scientists, including a recipient of an industrial fellowship award from the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR) in collaboration with the University of Luxembourg. The team regularly submits research projects to the European Commission, the European Space Agency and other national and international programmes. RSS-Hydro’s research revenue in the first quarter of 2020 accounted for half of its revenues while in 2019 its “Commercial Flood Products & Services” revenue stream accounted for 70% of all revenues. Most of that revenue stream came from model simulations and predictions. However, given the high demand from the flood disaster response community to offer more innovation in the EO application market, RSS-Hydro focuses resources and R&D projects to effectively respond to this market gap. RSS-Hydro is constantly committed to better serve science to everyone and engage end-users from a variety of different sectors from the start by assisting them in developing better products for their needs or using new and existing services in a way that produces better actionable information.

With AutoMap, the handling of satellite images has never been easier! We simplify the production of maps based on earth observation data and handle the application of machine learning algorithms for land surface classifications by providing a solid data processing pipeline in a fully managed cloud infrastructure. Bring your own samples or use our default solution, while we take care of the thousands of images that fit your request, all the clouds in your area of interest and every aspect of process optimization and secure data storage. Don't worry about machine learning concepts, intelligent training data collection, hyperparameter optimization or informative feature spaces - That's our job as well! Seeing the world from above is now as demanding as ordering a pizza!

NEO signals changes to agriculture parcels. Monitoring, based on satellite imagery in combination with artificial intelligence, aims to detect changes in the boundaries of the parcels. The service saves time and money because, based on the mutation signalling, parcels can be looked at more specifically to determine the new parcel boundaries. This supports the process of keeping the national LPIS (Land Parcel Identification System) registry up to date. The service that NEO provides is unique: it is the first time that mutation signalling based on earth observation is performed automatically on this scale. In this way the 500.000 parcels in the Netherlands are monitored. Open data from the national satellite data portal in the Netherlands is used.

NEO monitors solar panels throughout the Netherlands using deep learning methods. Solar panels are detected using various resolutions of satellite and aerial imagery. The panels are digitalized by the algorithm and related to 3D-roofs based on the AHN (Dutch national height model) to calculate zenith and azimuth angles. This data, combined with data such as solar power, allows NEO to estimate the power output for each object. Solar panels are also provided with parcel and address information and statistical reports, so customers can easily apply the data and relate it to internal registrations.
