NOA at the 78th Thessaloniki International Fair


On September 2013, NOA participated in the 78th Thessaloniki International Fair (T.I.F.), where it exhibited its activities in the pavilion of the General Secretariat for Research and Technology (Figure 1). T.I.F. is the most prominent innovation/industrial fair that takes place in Greece and the biggest event of its kind in the Balkan area, with emphasis on innovation in all production sectors. NOA’s booth has been inaugurated by the Greek Prime Minister, while among the visitors were the Greek Minister of Education, the Minister for Development as well as many other government officers and policy makers. The event also attracted a huge number of visitors from the academia, the industry and the general public.




The presentation of NOA focused on the undertaken efforts to setup innovative observational solutions in order to build a Center of Excellence for Earth Observation-based monitoring of Natural Disasters, under the FP7 project BEYOND (http://beyond-eocenter.eu/). Specifically, the exhibition comprised of the following components:

•    Presentation of the space based and in-situ observational networks operated at NOA for the systematic acquisition and archiving of satellite images and environmental data from the most known missions such as MSG-SEVIRI, MODIS, NPP, AVHRR, METOP, , and other third party missions.  
•    Presentation of the routine processing of Earth Observation imagery performed at NOA at different resolutions together with other space-related and ground observations for the production of maps and services.  These services are provided routinely to Civil Protection, Fire Brigade, Environmental authorities, as well as to authorities responsible for the security of citizens in periods of crisis and/or natural disasters. The areas covered include forest fires, earthquakes, landslides, floods, heat waves, desert dust storms, and smoke and toxic gases dispersion.
•    Case Study Demonstrations:
