The SWIFTT project was highlighted in a recent report by the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) and ant the European Union Agency for the Space Programme (EUSPA) entitled “Contribution to the Space2030 Agenda – The European Union Space Programme “EU Space” Supporting a world with a population of 8 billion”.
The report focuses on how to best leverage EU space data and information to answer the sustainability challenges of today while also paving the way towards a sustainable – and more densely populated – future.
SWIFTT will provide affordable, simple, and effective remote sensing tools to monitor forests at risk across Europe, using Copernicus Sentinel satellite imagery and powerful machine-learning models, allowing forest managers to prevent, estimate and mitigate the impact of windthrow, insect outbreaks, and wildfires.
