Exploitation Platforms are a central element of ESA’s Earth Observation (EO) Innovation Europe concept, which aims at the integration of EO data and information for a much broader use, for scientific, social and economic purposes, as well as for the generation of new commercial applications and services.
ESA is funding the definition of a common architecture and the development of interoperable components that can be used to expose data infrastructures or platform services via a set of standard interfaces.
ESA and the Telespazio Vega UK (the prime contractor) are now ready for selecting a small number of Exploitation Platform Operators willing to integrate the common architecture components within their services. These Operators will be procured via an ESA’s Best Practices ITT.
