Resumen:
Una pyme catalana del sector de dispositivos de detección remota por microondas ha desarrollado un sensor de medición remota de la humedad del suelo, nivel de agua, profundidad de la nieve, altimetría local, contenido de agua de la vegetación y altura de la vegetación. Los sensores permiten obtener datos de forma no invasiva. La tecnología se utiliza para la prevención de inundaciones, monitorización de diques, producción agrícola, gestión de riego y medición de la disponibilidad de recursos de agua. La empresa busca socios industriales con el fin de establecer acuerdos de investigación, cooperación técnica o comercialización con asistencia técnica.

Details

Tittle:
Innovative sensor for local altimetry and soil moisture remote measurements by using Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) opportunity signals.
Summary:
A Catalan SME working in the field of microwave remote sensing devices has developed a sensor for remote measurement of soil moisture, water level, snow depth, local altimetry, vegetation water content, and vegetation height. The sensor allows obtaining data in a noninvasive way. They are looking for industrial partners interested in a commercial agreement with technical assistance, a research cooperation or a technical cooperation agreement.
Description:
A Catalan SME with experience in research and development activities in the field of microwave remote sensing devices has developed a reflectometer to assist providing high density soil moisture data, water level, snow depth, local altimetry, vegetation water content, and vegetation height sensor for constant monitoring applications.

The sensor uses GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) signals as bi-static radar. By comparing the direct signal and the reflected signals, the system is able to retrieve: soil moisture, water level, vegetation water content, vegetation height, snow level, and local altimetry (sand thickness).

This technology can be applied in flood prevention, monitoring of levees and dikes, agriculture production, irrigation management, and measurements of water resources availability.

This technology has been field tested during extreme conditions and large periods of time.

The Catalan SME is looking for industrial partners interested in technical cooperation agreement to adapt the technology to specific needs or to further develop and industrialise this technology.

A research cooperation agreement with the aim of identifying new applications could be also considered.

The Catalan SME is also interested in a commercial agreement with technical assistance where technical advice in the use of the sensor as well as maintenance would be provided.
Advantages and Innovations:
- Constant monitoring

- Large areas are covered by a single instrument.

- Possibility to create networks of sensors.

- Data is obtained through noninvasive methods, so it does not affect the terrain and there is no need to remove the instrument to work or plough the field.

- Depth measurement: 10 cm
