The main ambition in the Space and Security domain is to ensure the wellbeing and security of countries and citizens by exploiting suitable space assets and collateral data.
A major objective is the development of capabilities and solutions to enhance:
An important activity in supporting the primary aims of the Space and Security domain is the provision of geospatial products and services resulting from satellite and collateral data.
Earth Observation data are currently showing an unprecedented scenario in terms of variety, volume, velocity, veracity and value. Moreover datasets to be used for security applications can be composed not only by satellite data but also by data coming from social, open and other sources. Thus the key challenge is to improve the capacity to access and analyse a huge amount of heterogeneous data to timely provide decision-makers with clear and useful information.
This will be addressed:
Activities for the period
Main activities foreseen in the Space and Security Community Activity are:
SatCen will build on its existing network with the aim of enlarging the contributors to the Space and Security CA and thus more in general the EO Community. A number of activities aiming at promoting the Space and Security CA within suitable entities and stakeholders as well as some technical actions are foreseen. The outputs of these activities will allow the building of the Space and Security User Community and the implementation of solutions relevant for this community.
Activities will be carried out on a voluntary basis.
