# Silex clouds
from EO Data to Information


Silex Clouds S.R.L. is centered on the provision of valuable information derived from complex satellite image processing techniques and GIS procedures, in Near Real Time (NRT) and in interoperable formats, oriented to the monitoring of different earth phenomena and to speed up an impact assessment analysis.

We also develope scripts for the automation of image processing workflows. These automatic procedures guarantee an easy ingestion of EO information in end-users systems by IT specialists by simple API requests.

Dust is the lesser acknowledged factor that significantly influences the performance of Photovoltaic installations. Few studies analyzed this effect and the consequent efficiency degradation.

SILEX Clouds Dust datasets uploaded to the end-user cloud space, gives the possibility to correlate Solar Parks performances with this phenomena in Real Time, with complete reports every 5 minutes.


Four main factors influence the soil reflectance in remote sensing images: mineral composition, soil moisture, organic matter content and soil texture. Size and shape of the soil aggregate also influence the reflectance in the images.

Soil datasets allow the discrimination between the moist and dry soils, and the analysis of trend thanks a continuos and automatic field monitoring .


Vegetation interacts with solar radiation in a different way than other natural materials. Different plant materials, water content, pigment, carbon content, nitrogen content, and other properties cause further variation across the vegetation spectrum.

Vegetation Datasets, put into evidence these variations giving the possibility to study their relationship to one another that can provide meaningful information about plant health, water content, environmental stress, and other important characteristics.

About silex clouds

Transformig Satellite Data into Information
Provision of Satellite added value products in Real Time

Silex Clouds S.R.L. is centered on the provision of valuable information derived from complex satellite image processing techniques and GIS procedures, in real or near real time and in interoperable formats.

For a real time approach, we process satellite images acquired by meteorological geostationary satellites (EUMETSAT, GOESS, etc.) and Sun-synchronous satellites (Landsat, Modis, Sentinel, etc,). The high time imagery resolution guarantee a continuous monitoring of the phenomenon.

The time and spatial resolution of the final products varies depending on the EO system capabilities.

  • Support to Solar Power plants via Real Time potential soiling presence and forecasting for extended MENA region.

  • Real Time dust storm monitoring and Impact Assessment for extended MENA region (temporal resolution: 5 minutes).

  • Fire monitoring (support to tower mounted services), Oil Spill monitoring (with machine learning assistance). SAR interferometry to Floods monitoring and damage assesment.

  • Satellite added value products with the assistance of on-field measurement campaigns

who makes it possible?

Silex Clouds is an innovative italian start-up promoted in 2017 by a group of researchers from the University of Rome related to Aerospace Engineering, Remote Sensing technologies and Geographic Information Systems management. Based on our experience, we offer a set of services related to the exploitation of Earth Observation (EO) satellites datasets.

our team

Research & Development professionals in different fields of expertise, related to Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems Management, Geology and Biology.

Hosted on

ONDA DIAS is a platform enabling users to host data and to build their applications in the Cloud. ONDA is the name of the Serco Italia S.p.A. led consortium selected to provide the Copernicus Data and Information Access Service (DIAS).

supported by

Space3ac & Copernicus Accelerator programs are designed to accompany start-ups from the generation of a business idea to its full commercialisation. They look for the most promising companies at the very early stage and then invest into them.


Mainly working with a B2B approach, our target is focused on Managers, Analysts, Companies, or researchers from sectors as: Agriculture, Insurance, Early Warning and Disaster Management, and Renewal Energies, among others.
