The newborn “Digital Technologies for Aerospace” sector at CRS4 Research Center in Sardinia – Italy integrates a deep know-how on digital technologies (from GIS to IoT, from Machine Learning to Cloud Computing) with aerospace technologies, applying them to different application domains, including archeology. The project here described focuses on defining a methodology that allows, through the pervasive use of remote sensing technologies, to assess in advance the need of excavation activities for a specific area.
In order to define the methodology, the researchers will have to deal with a large amount of data resulting from the application of different detection techniques (satellites, photogrammetry, georadar, LIDAR), extracting, analysing and comparing indexes and information.
Thanks to OCRE’s Earth Observation voucher for Planetek Rheticus Platform , the CRS4 researchers are able to overcome the need of managing high data volumes and having strong data processing capacities.
