Company Profile

NEXTANT Applications & Innovative Solutions – NAIS was established at the end of 2005, as Italian private owned; It’s an ICT System House based in Rome, classified as SME according to the European Commission classification (2003/361/EC). Company’s mission aims to design and propose to the proper market sectors, innovative applications and services based on ICT technologies and Satellite Navigation, EO & Communication assets. NAIS core competencies on Space & Defence market’s domain plays a strategic role in the development of innovative application by enabling technologies. Passing through R&D Projects, product industrialization and commercialization, NAIS completing in this way the whole Technology Transfer Process.

Over time several innovative applications and services have been developed and now available in the field of Smart-mobility (solution for both citizens and tourists transportation support and information), Emergency (mission management and resource planning), Cultural Heritage (safeguard, fruition and prevention), Maritime (search & rescue, mission management and access to harbour and docks), Defence (air defence systems radar), and Aeronautics (Air Traffic Management system 2D & 3D and flight information systems of General Aviation aircraft). Based on the following ICT knowledge:

  • Satellite technologies (Navigation (EGNOS/GALILEO), Communication, and Earth Observation);
  • Innovative HMI techniques based on Virtual and Augmented Reality techniques (e.g.applied to the development of non-conventional radar displays for the future Air Traffic Control);
  • Engineering and architectural aspects (e.g. Enterprise Architecture, Model Driven Engineering, SOA, RAMs analysis) applied to the development of complex safety criticalsystems (e.g. next generation ATM systems).

NAIS was involved and in someone still running, in National & European R&D project and programs, such as in the ATM sector: SESAR (Single European Sky ATM Research), eATMS (new ATM Italian program) S2BAS (Small airport & small aircraft flight information services) and RAID (RPAS & ATM Integration Demonstration). In ESA-ARTES20 IAP program; IRIS ANTARES on the SATCOMM domain, SIMONA on Maritime situation awareness and in ASI co-financed project such as: WHERE in the Earth Observation/ GMES technologies on Cultural Heritage domain and AIRONE on Aeronautic Meteo services. Some others on Transport, Maritime and Cultural Heritage areas of European Frame Programme, such as: Meduse (FP7), Enhanced Wisetrip (FP7), ITACA (FP7).

    The skills in satellite navigation technologies (EGNOS / GALILEO), Telecommunications and Earth Observation (GMES, now COPERNICUS) in synergy with ICT technologies allow NAIS to develop solutions in the following application domains: Mobility (smartmobility and info-mobility); Cultural Heritage (transport, monitoring and safeguarding, use); Emergencies and Civil Protection (command and control systems operations and decision support); Defense (weapon simulation systems for staff training); Aeronautical transport (ATM and in-flight services for General Aviation); Marine transport (access management of protected areas); Health (e-Health systems for mobile health).

    In the field of technologies applied to Cultural Heritage, NAIS has expertise in techniques and technologies of human-machine interaction based on virtual and augmented reality; GIS and WebGIS systems; standards for the interoperability of geo-spatial systems (INSPIRE directive, metadata standards, OGC standards); Earth observation data analysis techniques (classification, change detection, interferometry); systems based on GNSS positioning; wireless communication systems; satellite and terrestrial data communication.

    In the application domain of Cultural Heritage, NAIS offers:

    • Solutions for monitoring and safeguarding the immovable cultural heritage and the natural heritage threatened by the impact: anthropic (human impact on the environment); meteoclimatic (impact on the vulnerability of monuments); geotechnical-structural (deformations of land and structures).
    • Solutions for the protection and use of theme parks, historic buildings and museums with IT systems able to: manage multimedia contents for tourist use with 3D reconstructions; digital signature of the works (digital watermarking); manage access to sites with ancillary services to support visitors, such as location tracking, assistance requests and emergencies.
    • Solutions to monitor the integrity of mobile cultural assets (eg artwork, paintings ect.) During transport - VECTOR service. The proposed solution is able to check in real time both the geographical position of the asset and the physical parameters such as: temperature, brightness, brightness and vibrations, detected in the transport case and in the cargo compartment.

    NAIS is promoting its services to public territorial bodies (eg Superintendencies, Museums and Municipalities) and to associations that manage buildings and private properties of high historical and cultural interest, services deriving from the technological transfer of the results obtained from research and development projects carried out in collaboration with ASI (Italian Space Agency), the MiBACT (Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism) and the ISCR (Italian Institute for Conservation and Restoration).
