Felyx is an initiative funded by ESA. The Consortium consists of 3 companies from the UK and France, led by Ifremer.

The project was officially kicked-off at ESRIN on 21st January 2013. The initial implementation of Felyx system is planned in several sequences, following a global approach meant to fully meet the user needs, and provide a reliable and extensible solution which the user community will be able to build further on and tailor to new fields of application.

Access here all contractual (restricted to project members) and technical project documentation.

The felyx project is aiming to provide the satellite Earth observation user community with a software solution for monitoring data streams. Felyx will be based on flexible, customisable, and reusable software tools.  These tools can be used, for example to monitor the quality and performance of Earth Observation data streams, or to analyse multisource (satellite, in situ and model) data.  The analysis and monitoring is based on static (stationary) or dynamic (moving) targets which are extracted from near-real time data streams or large historical data collections.  The Felyx project draws on previous work carried out in several projects, such as the High-Resolution Diagnostic Dataset Systems (HR-DDS) developed in the GHRSST, GlobColour and GlobWave projects. Felyx is an 18 month project funded by the European Space Agency.


Felyx is meant to be generic and adaptable enough to integrate any kind of parameters (initially sea surface temperature, ocean colour, waves, and this list is to be extended) and serve a wide range of user applications. We therefore aim to keep the user community closely involved in the development process, so that users can be informed of progress, and provide feedback and guidance. After its initial implementation, it is expected that users will be able to contribute to the software development.  Please contact us if you are interested in Felyx!

Wherever you are a data user or developer, you can contribute to the project in various ways.


Felyx will include both a back-end and front-end system to help users analyzing the content of large collections of datasets. Here is a list of features "out of the box," but the power of Felyx will be also its extensibility, allowing the users to tailor the system to its specific application.
