The first Earth Observation Pre-Commercial Procurement
The aim of Marine-EO procurement is to develop, test and validate a bundle of innovative EO downstream services bringing incremental or radical innovations in the field of maritime awareness leveraging on the existing Copernicus Services (i.e. CMEMS, Security) and other products from the Copernicus portfolio.
In addition, a series of “support” services will standardize the way that EO (Earth Observation) is used for maritime awareness with regards to operational, technological, semantic and legal interoperability issues. The Marine-EO procurement seeks to cover the sea-basins of Mediterranean, Atlantic, and Arctic, by adapting Copernicus data and information in order to meet the demand of the buyers group.
The innovative EO downstream services are divided in two thematic areas that contractors can submit their offers on:
- Thematic Area 1 SATOCEAN:
Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring and Climate Change
- Thematic Area 2 SATSURVEILLANCE:
Budget: 2.769.106 Euro (VAT excluded)
Submission Deadline: 9 April 2018
