Check if interested Framework Contract for the Acquisition of Crowdsourcing Mapping Services

I. Description of the contract The European Union Satellite Centre (SatCen) seeks to award a Framework Contract for the acquisition of mapping services for sorting, classifying and extracting information from vast quantities of satellite images in short time, leveraging crowdsourcing methods. The aim of the service is to engage a community of participants (professional and non-professional analysts, university students, etc.) in discovering specific features in defined Areas of Interest (AOI), as well as validating, if needed, datasets of reported features. The service will be provided on-demand based on varying user’s needs and will run under a task-based approach. The contractor shall provide its own mechanisms (i.e. data management system, interface, etc.) to engage a motivated community to accomplish each task. The maximum contract value is €130,000.00, without VAT. The Framework Contract will be in force until 31 December 2018, automatically renewable for 1 year, up to 31 December 2019, subject to budget availability. The signature of the Framework Contract is expected for the beginning of September 2018. II. Description of the procurement procedure This ex-ante publicity is the first stage of a negotiated procurement procedure (with consultation of at least 5 candidates) through which the SatCen may award the above-mentioned service contract. The purpose of this notice is to support the SatCen in the selection of candidates to be invited to submit an offer. Economic operators interested in participating in this procedure may send their declarations of interest, along with their names, address and business details, before 24/07/2018, through our procurement portal: https://www.satcen.europa.eu/Procurement/low-and-middle-value-contracts. In their declarations of interest (300 words maximum), economic operators should demonstrate their ability to fulfil the contract and provide details of their experience in the field of the contract. The SatCen will assess this information in order to select suitable candidates invited to participate. This publication has an indicative value and constitutes no obligation to award a contract for the SatCen. Selected tenderers, invited by the contracting authority to participate in the procedure, will be sent the tender documentation. We look forward to receiving your declarations of interest.

Check if interested Contract for the acquisition of a feasibility study and its possible implementation for the detection of metallic objects buried less than 1 meter deep using an airborne radar

I. Description of the contract The European Union Satellite Centre (SatCen) is planning to award a contract for the acquisition of a feasibility analysis and its possible implementation for the detection of metallic objects buried less than 1 meter deep, using an airborne radar. In a constant effort to enhance its capabilities and the quality of services to its end users, the EU Satellite Centre is planning to award a contract for the performance of a feasibility analysis to research into novel applications of SAR data. The aim of the analysis is to explore the capability of certain wavelengths to penetrate the ground and detect objects that are located near the surface. To this end, two test locations have been set up in an area in Southern France, both featuring large metallic objects (60 cm) buried at a depth of approximately 80 cm. Ideally, if the conditions of the soil are dry enough, there is a certain expectation of success in identifying the objects using an airborne L-band sensor. The study will consist of two phases: - In the first phase, two areas < 0.5 sq km each will be provided. The first flight should attempt to identify the test objects buried at these locations. Should this phase be successful, then the contractor would be asked to proceed to a second phase; - In the second phase, a bigger area (70 sq km) would be provided, this time without knowing the precise coordinates at which a third metallic object is buried. The aim of this second flight would be to identify the precise location where this third object is buried. Tenderers should: - Have the necessary technical resources at their disposal, including an L-band radar and an airborne platform (airplane, helicopter or drone). - Be capable of mounting an L-band radar sensor on an airborne platform (airplane, helicopter or drone). - Have the necessary licenses or permits to fly over Southern France. - Have the necessary technical resources to deliver processed SAR images that will be used to prove the feasibility of this methodology. Earlier studies have demonstrated that the wave penetration is inversely proportional to the content of moisture in the soil, so the expected dates to conduct the flights would be ideally at mid/end of September. The maximum value of this contract, covering the feasibility analysis and the two foreseen flights, is €80,000.00 without VAT. The signature of the contract is expected for early September 2018. II.
