    The protection of European space infrastructures including the setting up of a Space Surveillance and Tracking (SST) capability at European level, represents a new priority of the EU space policy. The H2020 Work Programme for Space 2014-15 addresses challenges associated with this programmatic priority and ensures adequate support to the relative topics and actions. The main initiative towards the development of a SST capability at European level is represented by the SST Support Framework decision adopted by the Council and the European Parliament on the 16 of April 2014. The European Union Satellite Centre (EU SatCen) is an EU Agency linking space and security and with long experience in delivering geospatial imagery information services and products with various levels of classification to both civil and defence users. Its expertise in handling confidential information in a secure environment and its tight institutional links with the Member States has enabled the EU SatCen to build distinctive expertise on SST issues. The PASS (Preparation for the establishment of a European SST Service provision function) support action will aim at ensuring the transition of the EU SatCen SSA activities towards the Centre’s contribution to the setup of a SST service provision function within the SST Support Framework initiative by identifying necessary functional elements and interfaces with relevant SST actors, with particular emphasis on security aspects. PASS will strive to propose mature definitions of such interfaces, benefiting from the fruitful collaboration already established with the main actors involved. It will provide a technical contribution to this objective and to the future establishment of the SST capability by developing a representative SST service provision function pilot. Moreover, PASS will also contribute in exploring the different contexts and scenarios for the cooperation of the EU SatCen within the SST Support Framework

    Currently, many processes, procedures, systems and equipment for information management and exchange in EU civilian external actions are in place, but these are often used in an incoherent way and lack interoperability, inhibiting CSDP entities and other stakeholders to build a common understanding of crisis management. CIVILEX aims to identify, characterise and model the communication and information systems in use within the EU Civilian missions, understand the stakeholders’ requirements and provide possible solutions to tackle by a future interoperable Situational Awareness, Information Exchange and Operational Control Platform. This would allow to constitute a more coherent and interoperable platform. As a result, common understanding and situational awareness about crisis management in EU civilian external actions will be enhanced since CIVILEX paves the way for such an infrastructure. The envisaged platform should facilitate the engagement of EU actors. This can include CSDP missions, EU Delegations, ECHO offices and Member State Embassies, but also UN offices and other non-EU actors. While the focus is on the civilian chain of command, it should also consider certain connections and overlaps with military actors. The need for coherence and interoperability is not new, nor is it a purely technical challenge. Clearly, there are certain legal, policy, institutional and human elements that function as facilitators and constrainers for better information exchange. CIVILEX, therefore, adds an innovative dimension by researching and helping to clarify the wider policy, institutional and operational issues of ICT systems in the context of CSDP and EU external action. The project would take a hybrid approach, aiming both for a technical solution for information exchange (a platform that stimulates low-level, secure ad-hoc communities of interest) and for institutional changes (leading to agreements on exchange formats for civilian parties).

    Global Earth Monitor project (GEM) is addressing the challenge of continuous monitoring of large areas in a sustainable cost effective way. The goal of the project is to establish a new disruptive Earth Observation (EO) DATA-EXPLOITATION MODEL which will dramatically enhance the exploitation of Copernicus data. For the first time a continuous monitoring of the planet on the global/regional scale will be enabled for a sustainable price. Disruptive innovations are planned in the technology and in the methodology domain, where a proprietary concept of Adjustable Data Cubes (a combination of static and dynamic data cubes) will be developed and integrated with EO-oriented open source Machine Learning (ML) framework EO-LEARN. During the project EO-LEARN will be upgraded to consume ML technologies from widely accepted ML frameworks and to adapt/evolve them to specifics of EO-data interpretation. Modern ML technologies and approaches (GAN, RNN, LSTM, Attention & Bayesian Deep Learning, Curriculum Learning, Incremental learning, Meta-learning, Hybrid modelling) will be combined to construct GLOBAL, SCALE-INDEPENDENT interpretation models with the special focus on CAUSALITY and CHANGE DETECTION. Technological and Methodological innovations will be combined into a unique CONTINUOUS MONITORING PROCESS. The process, based on seamless combination of data interpreted with sub-resolution, native resolution and super-resolution methods, will deliver optimal combination of Processing/Storage costs – enabling continuous monitoring of large areas for just a FRACTION OF CURRENT COSTS. The concept of continuous monitoring will be validated through the development of five specific use-cases and through their employment in a 10-month demonstration - operational continuous monitoring of 10 MIO square km area.
