Consorzio S3LOG, Italy (S3LOG)

The S3Log Consortium is an Italian Company established in Italy (OCCAR Member State) on July 14th, 2004, joining the outstanding expertise of the most referenced Italian Companies in the field of IT applications and services supporting the security and logistic process. Today the Consortium is therefore represented by SELEX SI (a Finmeccanica Company) and VITROCISET. S3Log is a leader Company, able to identify and integrate the best-of-breed technologies to meet and overcome the technical, logistic, operational and financial requirements of the project; a Company able to work flexibly with international Customers and Partners, involving them all in each step of the Project thanks to a systematic problem solving approach; a Company expert in the most advanced project management techniques, to guarantee the best trade-off in the ratio “timeliness-costs-quality”; a Company not only able to provide complex systems and outstanding expertise, but also to integrate technology and skills to transform a project into a success story, providing an effective turn-key solutions, in a strategic project for future support to many different Programs. The Consortium develops and markets IT systems and services in connection with logistics, administration and management activities for all Italian Defence Ministry Unit operations, in addition to logistic support systems and services for the vehicles and equipment used by other government entities, including the Guardia di Finanza (tax-fraud police) and the Police Force. The Consortium coordinates the activities of its members during both bidding and contract execution, and specifically in connection with Program Management, System Engineering and Design Authority responsibilities.

Role in the Project: In SMART S3LOG will contribute on the basis of its expertise in sensors, sensor data processing, data fusion algorithms and integration techniques. S3LOG has vast experience in dealing with multiple sensors and sensor networks (mainly in security and defence environments). Based on this experience it will engage in sensor modelling, as well as filtering and processing of non-A/V sensor streams. S3LOG will lead the SMART Edge Server integration activities in WP4. S3LOG will lead the integration activities of the project (WP6), where it will also integrate the security and surveillance use case. S3LOG will also engage in specifications and evaluation processes, mainly from the integrator’s perspective, while also contributing to the reusable mashups activity in WP5.
