Development of complex Earth remote probing data processing system
using Grid technologies
Supported by: project “Development of complex Earth remote probing
data processing system using Grid technologies” is joint project of
Ukraine and Belarus. Executor from Ukraine is Space Research Institute
of NANU-NSAU, one from Belarus is United Institute of Informatics
Problems of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus
Main organization: Space Research Institute NASU-NSAU
Director: Prof. Nataliia Kussul

National Academy of Sciences of Belarus.
The project is aimed to develop Grid system which should consolidate
available resources of UIIP of NANB and SRI of NANU-NASU for complex
processing of Earth remote probing data. The system should provide
real-time processing of multi-spectral data supplied by Earth remote
The main purpose of project is creation of applications necessary for
solving following problems: restoring distorted by noise images,
object or image reconstruction, quality improvement and smoothing,
detection of brightness drops and lines, textural analysis, area
segmentation and image recognition, transformation of halftone images,
geometrical transformations and topographic binding.
Proposed approach consists in designing general infrastructure of
virtual organization, which will consolidate available computational
and informational resoources of Ukrainian and Belorussian sides using
Grid technologies and will create base for introduction of parallel
ERP data processing. Use of Grid technologies guaranties getting easy
controlled and scalable system which provides ability to implement
more complex algorithms and methods for processing remote probing
In progress of the project execution following results will be obtained:
- Infrastructure, which consolidates computational resources and is
able to process EPR data effectively in parallel mode.
Libraries of applicable functions for parallel data processing
meant for ERP data processing including pre-processing, textural
analysis, geographical binding, geometrical transformations, etc.
Grid services based on libraries of applicable functions for ERP
data processing in parallel computations environment based on
- Methods and software for operation in automatic mode.
