The SkyMedia partner Nimbus is involved in the SMAT F1 project, whose aim is to simulate a joint land-monitoring mission for civil purposes and to study and test a monitoring system for the prevention, emergency and territorial protection phases in a wide range of events such as floods, fires, landslides, traffic, town planning, pollution and farming. The monitoring system is to operate in an integrated manner with the authorities responsible for managing these events, providing them with timely information and real-time updates through a monitoring and coordination station.
