The goal of G-SEXTANT is to consolidate a portfolio of Earth Observation products and services that support the geospatial information (geoinformation) needs of the European External Action Service.
The exploration of the Security dimension of GMES, the definition of services and products to respond to the user’s demands, and the implementation of an appropriate governance will be consolidated in G-SEXTANT from the lessons learned from previous projects.
Focusing on the gaps identified in previous security projects, the major objectives of the G-SEXTANT are: 1) preparation and delivery of pre-operational services in user-driven SEA scenarios; 2) further enhancement of already mature products and services demanded by the users; and 3) to reach a standardised portfolio.
Demonstrations will be conducted in different scenarios to cover the potential application areas of interest identified by the SEA working group and mentioned in the Call: humanitarian crisis, natural resources, land conflict situation awareness, nuclear activities, monitoring of illicit crops and border monitoring outside the EU.
The G-SEXTANT project is organised to exploit the experience and skills of the different stakeholders involved: industry (production and implementation capacity), institutional organizations (experience in R&D activities) and EU organizations (consistency with EU policy and operations and access to intelligence data).
Involvement of users in validation activities will ensure the achievement of appropriate products and services and provide the exact measurement of the impact of G-SEXTANT in the security user community.
