We seek to join a consortium in Section 1 & 2 calls of 2021.
We monitor and analyze the dynamics of aquifers from space. Our solution offers an early warning system and up-to-date & historical deformation of the terrain and infrastructures at any point of the planet’s aquifers with millimeter accuracy and without ground instrumentation.
Through the application of the latest satellite technologies, our solution describes both the current state and the past behavior of the aquifer, over large areas, without in situ instrumentation and at a low cost. Our solution will provide data on the rate at which groundwater suppliers are being depleted and will contribute to improve the management of groundwater. Knowledge on the historical loading/unloading aquifers’ cycle, the aquifers’ level and the rate of loading/unloading is critical information to foreseeing problems of groundwater overexploitation and/or contamination.
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
Detektia S. L. is a Spanish start-up, spin-off of the Laboratory of Topography and Geomatics of the Civil Engineering School of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM). Detektia gathers and integrates the knowledge acquired in more than 20 years of applied research in ground monitoring. Detektia’s team members master DInSAR technology and artificial intelligence techniques; they have more than 35 years of experience between university and private sector and a wide vision of the energy, civil engineering, environmental and water sectors.
In 2020 Detektia has participated in EIT Climate-KIC Accelerator (phases I & II), ranked Top10 within the European Space Agency (ESA) Startup Competition and incubated by ESA in their Business Incubation Center ( ESA-BIC) in Madrid. Detektia has also been awarded with an accesit as the winner of the Sacyr Innovation iChallenges 2020
The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area will devise new R&I approaches to improve water availability and sustainable agriculture production in a region heavily distressed by climate change, urbanisation and population growth
The PRIMA programme is an Art.185 initiative supported and funded under Horizon 2020, the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
