Final Report - TANGO (Telecommunications advanced networks for GMES operations)

Project ID: 30970
Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE


This is the final activity report of the TANGO project which was funded under the Sixth Framework Programme to develop and demonstrate satellite telecommunications solutions able to cope with the most stringent requirements of Global monitoring for environment and security (GMES) applications. It presents key telecommunication components and technologies that have been either adapted or developed, and subsequently validated.

This report describes also each step taken towards an operational telecommunications platform which will provide a unique access point to several satellite and terrestrial communications systems. It identifies solutions answering the needs of GMES service providers with respect to input characteristics such as coverage, type of connectivity, type of terminal, data rate.

Lastly, it summarises the results of demonstrations and training activities carried out with the aim to gather and analyse the feedback from end-users. Lessons learned were considered for elaborating recommendations for future improvement to the telecommunications solutions proposed by the TANGO project.
