The 3WSA project enables Walloon companies to take a more competitive position with respect to the technological tools necessary to build secured geomatic service platforms.
The 3WSA project addresses the development of technical tools, and experimentation with these tools, merging state-of-the-art ICT with existing and future infrastructures for space applications, especially GALILEO and GMES. The purpose of the project is to provide decision tools to security agencies and citizens in the areas of public security, environmental issues, mobility and natural resources management.
The 3WSA project is intended to initiate a centre of geomatic services in the Walloon Region, addressing European and even global markets, built on existing infrastructures and leading to a number of industrial and commercial initiatives:
An example of an application of service orchestration is the selection of satellite photography from a limited zone – e.g. a SEVESO plant – from which a specific service provider will identify the storage tanks and their contents. Then, it should be possible to launch a new service to determine the required security zones and dispersion areas around the tanks, taking into account the risk posed by the substances of concern.
CETIC is participating in the development of the billing platform (based on SOA – Service Oriented Architecture) and in the development of the security module for each registered service (based on an Access Control technology). CETIC is providing 3WSA with its expertise in conception and prototyping to upgrade a service platform and add new services to it. CETIC will transfer the corresponding technologies to its partner, Spacebel.
Thanks to its federative character, the 3WSA project makes it possible for Walloon companies to take a more competitive position with respect to the technological tools necessary to build secured geomatic service platforms.
CETIC’s role is to provide its expertise in the areas of security, certification and billing. In each of these three domains, CETIC has designed a state-of-the-art service platform and developed a prototype to demonstrate the technology.
