Framework Contract for the supply of Reference Mapping Products

Restricted procedure reference SATCEN-RP-02/18

Contract notice 2018/S 077-170682

 

I.        Overview of the contract

The objective of this procurement procedure is the award of a framework contract with reopening of competition for the supply of reference mapping products that will facilitate the assessment of specific areas of interest (AoIs) in support of EU decision-making.

The framework contract will cover the production and supply of four different types of products:

 

Product 1 - Full Reference Mapping: High Resolution Vector Data (HRVD) products and provision of a background of geographical context, as well as a representation of a requested AoI, including hydrography, topography, land cover, infrastructure and population relevant data according to a Reference Mapping Data Dictionary (RMDD). The Full Reference Mapping encompasses 212 Feature Classes (Area: 105, Line: 43, Point: 64): 204 of the 267 MGCP plus 8 additional ones. 

 

Product 2 - Reduced Reference Mapping: HRVD products and provision of a background of geographical context, as well as a representation of a requested AoI, including lines of communications, land cover and other relevant data according to a subset of the RMDD. The Reduced Reference Mapping Product encompasses 117 Feature Classes (Area: 60, Line: 28, Point: 29): 112 of the 267 MGCP plus 5 additional ones.  

 

Product 3 - On-Demand Reference Mapping: HRVD products and provision of background of geographical context, as well as a representation of a requested AoI, with a limited set of Feature Classes which will be defined in each specific Product Request Form.

 

Product 4 - Updated Reference Mapping: Updates of HRVD products that have already been produced, based on new extraction specifications as well as new imagery.

 

All of the aforementioned products will also require capabilities in processing Very High Resolution optical satellite imagery to create mapping-ready orthomosaics and open source information extraction to accurately complete the attribute tables of some features.

Framework Contract for the Validation of Innovative Geospatial Tools

Restricted procedure reference SATCEN-RP-01/18

Contract notice 2018/S 061-133987

 

I.         Overview of the contract

The objective of this procurement procedure is the award of a framework contract for the acquisition of services supporting the validation of innovative geospatial tools for SatCen’s exploitation activities.

The framework contract will be divided into 6 lots as follows:

•             Lot No 1.  Satellite derived 3D Models: to provide off-the-shelf and on-demand Digital Elevation Models extracted from Very High Resolution (VHR) Electro-Optical and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellite imagery, leveraging 3D extraction capabilities.

•             Lot No 2. Open Source Information Exploitation Platform: to provide open source content, monitoring and analytics capabilities to deliver actionable information in the field of border security.
