Alma Sistemi srl won three H2020-MSCA-RISE-2018 projects funded by the European Community.

The projects are part of Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) action and foresee their realization through a multidisciplinary researchers and professionals exchange. The projects are:


1 – IN-TIME, ”In-situ Instrument for Mars and Earth dating application”, a project that addresses the technological and economic viability of a leading-edge instrument for dating of Mars’ sub-surface samples: a miniaturized, portable instrument for in-situ examination and assessment based on the luminescence method. IN-TIME will be also suitable for terrestrial field applications as a lightweight and portable dating and analysis instrument for geology and archaeology as well as a risk assessment tool for accident and emergency dosimetry and nuclear mass-casualty events.

The project will involve 25 researcher and professionals coming from Italy (Alma srl, Università degli Studi G.D’annunzio di Chieti-Pescara, Università di Sassari) Spain (Universidad Complutense De Madrid, Sensia Solutions Sl), Cyprus (S3 Space Systems Solutions , Cyprus Space Exploration Organisation) and USA (The University of Texas at Austin).

ALMA Sistemi Srl is project coordinator.


2 – RESEARCH, “REmote SEnsing techniques for ARCHaeology”, a project that addresses the design and development of a multi-task platform, integrating satellite remote sensing and ground-based technologies with GIS application for mapping, diagnostics and long term monitoring of cultural heritage sites.

The project will involve 23 researchers and professionals coming from Italy (Alma srl, Università degli Studi della Tuscia), Cyprus (Cyprus University of Technology, S3 Space Systems Solutions), Greece (Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas, Geosystems Hellas) and Poland (University Adama Mickiewicza of Poznan).

ALMA Sistemi Srl is partner and Università degli studi della Tuscia is coordinator.


3 – STABLE, “STructural stABiLity risk assessment”, a project that address risk maps of Cultural Heritage (CH) at medium scale (block of buildings and large structures) to derive forecast for seismic movements impacting on the structural stability of the CH.

The project will involve 36 researchers and professionals coming from Italy (Alma srl, Università degli Studi della Tuscia, Università degli Studi di Roma La Sapienza), Cyprus (S3 Space Systems Solutions, Frederick University) and Greece (Geosystem Hellas, National Technical University of Athens, Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas).

ALMA Sistemi Srl is project coordinator.


All the projects are now in Grant Agreement preparation and are expected to start in November 2018.

m2p winning cermonuy

Cristina Baldetti rappresented the company during the award cerimony on June 5th 2018.


Combine the innovative technology of meta-materials – structures with properties superior to ordinary materials – with the dynamic characteristics of the plasma for the realization of highly innovative communication structures, again non-existent at European level, applicable to the aerospace sector. It is the goal of the M2P project, which launches new application technologies telecommunications through the use of advanced materials.

The study of the material arises from the growing need to create antennas of telecommunication and navigation can get a high gain, with capacity for reconfigurability, antijamming and antispoofing potential and with characteristics of weight, dimensions and consumption more and more sophisticated. Alma Sistemi, which has been operating in the aerospace and defense sector for over 10 years, with significant results in the field of consultancy and new development products and services, has established itself on the international market in the sectors of remote sensing, image processing, software development of tests for space and avionics systems.

The M2P project, developed in partnership with the Engineering Department University of the studies  Roma Tre, is the latest in a series of Research, Development activities and Innovation, which sees Alma Sistemi as the protagonist at an international level in the fields of computer and mechanical engineering and in the engineering of project, especially in the areas of application of space, environment and ICT.

Total Investment of the Project: € 281.500

Admitted Contribution: € 225.050

Promoter: ALMA SISTEMI S.A.S.Guidonia Montecelio (RM) –

Research Organization: Università degli Studi Roma Tre

M2P Project Act of commitment

Loghi Regione per Lumino


1 June 2018, the act of commitment for the M2P Project, a project under the umbrella of the KET’s call and a project that saw the collaboration between Alma Sistemi and the engineering department of the University of Rome 3, was signed in the offices of Lazio Innova, in via dell’Ambaradam in Rome.

About the project

Telecommunications is of paramount importance to the modern world. Increasingly it is required to antenna systems: multifrequency, filling guarantee, resolutions, multiple irradiation lobes, orientation and reconfigurability; High gain antennas are required for long-range communication (i.e Geostationary satellites). Moreover, in space applications the limits imposed by the payload are stringent: weight, size and consumption.

We want to study a method for the construction of an advanced material for the development of antennas for telecommunications and navigation applications, which is able to obtain a high gain but also surprising capacity for reconfigurability with antijamming and antispoofing potential.In recent years, two fields are revolutionizing the world of telecommunications and electromagnetic control:

• Meta-materials, structures that exhibit properties that exceed the limits of ordinary materials;

• Plasma, with electromagnetic characteristics controllable by external parameters.By combining the dynamic capabilities of the plasma with the properties of meta-materials, a structure that is potentially in line with the requirements of space systems and missions is obtained.exploratory, and which also shows non-existent reconfigurability in the world market.The Plasma Meta-Materials (M2P) project has the following pioneering objectives:

• Development of prototype of plasma meta-material:- design and development of a single unit of meta-material (surface) for the efficient generation of plasma;- Experimental characterization of the single cell and of the prototype surface;- Development of meta-material based on engineering requirements.

• Meta-material simulation:- Improvement and validation of the simulation software in possession;- Simulation of a plasma cell for electromagnetic control;- Simulation of the complete meta-material.

• Verification and validation of the prototype:- Planning of the tests in the required bands;- Electromagnetic characterization of the meta-surface and calibration of the simulation software;- Analysis of the results. Moreover, it is found that both in Italy and in Europe, there are no pre-industrialization initiatives of these technologies in the form of this project. This allows us to consider M2P a project in line with the KETs call.M2P aims to introduce this field, a hybrid between meta-materials and plasmas physics, in the regional context, making the members of the first aggregation in Europe to form in this field not yet explored sufficiently.M2P is part of the RSI strategy of new technologies for telecommunications applications through the use of advanced materials. The project uses an approach, complementary to the studies in place such as the aforementioned PATH, PALADIN and STARLET, as well as exhaustive studies on meta-materials.
