Description

The purpose of the DEMO is to present the first outcomes of 2 successful EOSC-hub Business Pilots that are part of the EOSC Digital Industry Hub “EOSC-DIH”. The first pilot, ACTION Seaport (www.actionseaport), combines data acquisition, numerical forecasting systems and data analytics to help Ports improve environmental, safety and operational performance. The breakthrough scientific advances in operational oceanography over the last decades, combined with the recent web + mobile movements and the Internet of Things, have all contributed to the creation of new paradigms for local port / national maritime authorities, towards better maritime situational awareness and more proactive monitoring, preparedness and response to environmental and safety issues. Many ports face important challenges and limitations regarding certain periods with adverse marine weather conditions affecting ship navigation, piloting, ship berthing, and human safety. These conditions can generate significant port operation downtimes, or create conditions that can favour ship accidents, and eventually marine pollution incidents. ACTION Seaport’s backbone is hosted on EOSC-hub cloud services provided by PSNC with high capacity, to process all the data and, from a user perspective point of view, the system is accessed through an advanced mobile-friendly platform, working seamlessly in laptop, tablet or smartphone. Real-time dashboards are available for wall screens in operation rooms, as well as the distribution of digital reports and tailor-made early-warning SMS and email alerts. Using EOSC-hub cloud services allows to perform scalability tests of the solution (e.g. increasing the resolution). The demo will focus on the port of Lisbon. The second pilot, developed a cloud-based framework for the future commercialisation of the DRACO observatory data. The framework is used for the analysis, storage and distribution of the state-of-the-art Space Weather data generated first by the existing next-gen cosmic ray prototypes and then by the future DRACO observatory. DS-DRACO is conceived as a web portal with advanced user interface which integrates, in its first stage, a terrestrial network of several Cosmic Ray EAS (Extensive Air Shower) detectors. DS-DRACO will offer valuable and near real-time data to research teams, public and private organizations interested in research fields as Space Weather and related atmospheric phenomena. DS-DRACO uses the EOSC-hub cloud services provided by CESGA (Galicia Supercomputing Centre) and database engine providing facilities to query, filter and grouping data as well as results presentation as tables and plots plus dataset download services.

Summary

The demo will present two business pilots integrated with EOSC-hub services. The demonstration will show how use cases work, from a user point of view.
Within the EOSC Digital Industry Hub, it is possible to implement Business Pilots on European Digital Infrastructures, taking advantage of more computational and storage resources. This will, for example, allow to increase the resolution of the numerical models which consequently lead to better forecasts to manage ports (ACTION Seaport) or offer valuable and near real-time data to research teams, public and private organizations interested in research fields as Space Weather (DS-DRACO).
