GeoSES (HUSKROUA) project: representatives of the Polish company presented new equipment to engineering students

TPI company representatives Grzegorz Sobina (Rzeszow, Poland) and Lukasz Pieczyk (Warsaw, Poland) conducted a training where they taught students of the Faculty of Engineering to work with a complex system of 3D reality creation (unmanned aerial vehicle, camera, software). The training was conducted as part of the project Extension of the operational "Space Emergency System" towards monitoring of dangerous natural and man-made geo-processes in the HU-SK-RO-UA cross-border region”(GeoSES) together with the project team from Uzhhorod National University including Prof. Natalia Kablak, Assoc. Prof. Oleksandr Reitiy and Yaroslav Vash. It was attended by Assoc. Prof. Mykola Kharkhalis and students of the Faculty of Engineering of UzhNU.

The goal of the GeoSES project (HUSKROUA) is geomonitoring of natural and man-made processes in the cross-border area to prevent emergencies. The project is implemented under the Joint Operational Program Hungary-Slovakia-Romania-Ukraine 2014-2020, funded by the EU.

Grzegorz Sobina, a representative of TPI, shared his impressions of the days spent with Uzhhorod National University students: “I was last in Ukraine 15 years ago, and I can say that there are a lot of positive changes. I liked both the university and working with students. First of all, because I can feel their desire to learn new things and improve. It’s worth noting that students have a good knowledge base, speak English, can code, and it makes communication with them easy and pleasant. We are staying here for a short period, however, during this time students will be able to master the basics of photogrammetric technologies, drone functions, and learn how to work with the obtained data, as well as with the software and, as a result, design a project.”

 The GeoSES project (HUSKROUA) has more than just an educational purpose. The basis for its implementation is a general analysis of deformations of the earth's surface in order to obtain detailed information about its current state, as well as to determine the main directions of further local research to assess the risks associated with surface deformation (e.g. landslides, uplifts, subsidence). In order to achieve this goal, the most modern satellite technologies (radar interferometry, GNSS), aerial photography, laser scanning are used.
