e-GEOS has been awarded a contract by the Eu Satellite Centre (SatCen)

Rome  18 May 2017

The European Union Satellite Centre (SatCen) has awarded a Framework Contract for the supply of the Copernicus Service in Support to EU External Action Geospatial Production, for a maximum value of 7.5 million euro, to a consortium of European industries led by e-GEOS.

Through this service, e-GEOS will assist SatCen to support the European Union in its external action, providing EU with geo-information on remote, difficult to access critical areas, where security issues are at stake. Copernicus will also support EU in situations of crisis or emerging crisis and to prevent global and trans-regional threats having a destabilizing effect.

To grant the large satellite imagery 24/7 production capacity required by the contract, e-GEOS will lead a European consortium including GAF and Telespazio Iberica – both part of the Telespazio group-, Airbus Defence and Space, GMV, IABG and SIRS.

Massimo Comparini, CEO of e-GEOS, said: “We are honored to drive such a European industrial team in support to the EU SatCen, one of the most important entrusted entities of the European Commission. With this contract, e-GEOS, together with its industrial shareholders, Telespazio and Leonardo, is confirming its leadership as service provider within the European Copernicus programme and the importance to establish strong and valuable partnerships with key players to provide the best services to EU”.
