Within the context of the Copernicus (former GMES) Initiative, the FP 7 project G-SEXTANT aims at consolidating a portfolio of Earth Observation products and services that support the geospatial information needs of the European External Action Service. Thereby main focus is set on the development of pre-operational services in the frame of pre-defined scenarios (e.g. humanitarian crisis, natural resources), the definition of products to respond to the user’s demands and the development of a standardized product portfolio.
The G-SEXTANT project consortium under the lead of INDRA is composed of 14 partners from industry, institutional organizations and EU organizations. The 2 years project started on January 1st, 2013.
