Final Report - GMOSS (Global Monitoring For Security And Stability)

Project ID: 503699
Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE

Abstract

This is the final report of the GMOSS project which aimed to integrate Europe's civil security research so as to nourish the expertise base needed to use Earth observation (EO) for global monitoring purposes. Unlike other remote sensing-focused projects, GMOSS was characterised by the end-to-end integration of both political and socio-economic aspects of security.

This report contains a short summary of the project partners' efforts to indentify the best practices for monitoring borders and international treaties protecting against proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. All these were supported by information exchanged between stakeholders during crises as well as investigations of present and future threats to security which were thoroughly analysed in order to incorporate information from EO into crisis management and conflict prevention.
