A propos de l’Agence spatiale européenne

L’Agence spatiale européenne (ESA) est la porte d’accès de l’Europe à l’espace.

L’ESA est une organisation intergouvernementale créée en 1975, dont la mission consiste à gérer le développement des capacités spatiales de l’Europe et à faire en sorte que les investissements dans l’espace bénéficient aux citoyens européens et du monde entier.

L’ESA compte 19 Etats membres : l’Allemagne, l’Autriche, la Belgique, le Danemark, l’Espagne, la Finlande, la France, la Grèce, l’Irlande, l’Italie, le Luxembourg, la Norvège, les Pays-Bas, le Portugal, la République tchèque, la Roumanie, le Royaume-Uni, la Suède et la Suisse. 17 d’entre eux sont également membres de l’UE. L’ESA a signé des accords de coopération avec 9 autres Etats membres de l’UE et négocie actuellement un accord avec la Bulgarie. La Pologne s’apprête à devenir le 20ème Etat membre de l’Agence. Le Canada participe à certains programmes de l’ESA au titre d’un accord de coopération.

En coordonnant les ressources financières et intellectuelles de ses membres, l’ESA peut entreprendre des programmes et des activités qui vont bien au-delà de ce que pourrait réaliser chacun de ces pays à titre individuel.

L’ESA développe les lanceurs, les satellites et les moyens sol dont l’Europe a besoin pour jouer un rôle de premier plan sur la scène spatiale mondiale. Aujourd’hui, elle lance des satellites d’observation de la Terre, de navigation, de télécommunication et d’astronomie, elle envoie des sondes jusqu’aux confins du système solaire et elle mène en coopération des projets d’exploration humaine de l’espace.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
Collecting data in the field and configuring multitudes of unique devices is a time-consuming, labor-intensive process that can stretch IT resources. Horan & Bird [H&B], Australia’s fifth-largest Solar Panel Installer, wanted to automate sensor data collection and monitoring from its solar panels and integrate the data with its business and marketing systems. After data was collected and structured, two major areas needed to be addressed: improving developer workflows and extending access to a business application to multiple users (multi-tenancy). Docker, a container technology, was used to ...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
