National GMES Service Projects
The following national GMES Service Projects are managed by the DLR Space Agency and are executed with significant contributions from the Institutes of the Earth Observation Center (EOC).
DeCover delivers geoinformation services to generate and update geo-related status and planning information concerning land cover. Toward this end, this joint project develops innovative and cost effective methodologies making use of earth observation and various other data sources to generate land cover information. The aim of DeCover is to support governmental agencies and offices in their need for land cover information. The consortia has 11 partners in Germany and is managed by the EFTAS Fernerkundung Technologietransfer GmbH. DFD is associated partner in the project and supports developments in the areas of nature protection and SAR geocoding. Project Schedule: January 2006 - June 2008
The DeSecure project was initiated by the DLR Space Agency. Its aim is to support satellite based crisis information for users in the German government. The entire production cycle (from data reception, pre-processing and information extraction to data delivery) is being analyzed and improved. Another focus is the integration of German mission data such as from TerraSAR-X and RapidEye in this production cycle. Beyond the generation of satellite-based crisis information the use of RapidEye data in science is being supported.
DeMarine Environment is one of the two pillars of the joint project DeMarine. DeMarine aims to support the sustainable use of GMES maritime services in Germany and is thereby an interface between the European GMES Marine Core Services and the requirements of German national and regional users. The project is scheduled to last three years and started in February 2008.
DeMarine Security is one of Germany’s national GMES interface projects. DeMarine Security focuses on the development of satellite based services and demonstrations to improve the surveillance of the maritime environment and specifically to improve the security of ship routes and ship based transport. EOC contributes to this project its expertise in SAR data and its near-real-time data acquisition capabilities in Neustrelitz.
