Telecommunications advanced networks for GMES operations

Objective

The objective of the TANGO IP is to develop, integrate, demonstrate and promote new satellite telecommunication services to expand GMES services and enhance their performances where unmet needs can be identified. Satellite telecommunication services can bring their key characteristics of permanent and global coverage to extend the reach of their subscribers. GMES service platforms can thus take benefits of these characteristics for data collection (real time, global access), data distribution (multicasting) and ad-hoc networking (for crisis management).
Thanks to the large participation of contributors from the GMES field, a top down approach will be implemented to identify the requirements for telecommunication services that are not met for the delivery of GMES services. With the involvement of actors of each role of the value chain, upgrades of the most recent satellite telecommunication techniques will be researched, proposed and developed for final integration with on-going GMES developments (in the framework of security and crisis management, fisheries management, maritime surveillance and humanitarian aid), and demonstrations to the stakeholders. One of the principle target will be the integration of SATCOM services with terrestrial networks, on both the networking aspects (GSM, PMR, Bluetooth) but also on transport aspects (IP suite) to facilitate the inclusion of such satellite services within GMES applications. Several satellite solutions (DVB/RCS, SATMODE, CLS, WorldSpace..) will be examined to cope adequately with various needs.
A Common Services telecom Platform will be introduced to offer a single interface to GMES end users when needed. A set of recommendations will be issued for the development of an operational structure. Standardisation and dissemination will be performed all along to promote the corresponding results and techniques in an open manner, so as to guarantee the widest access to the services.
