Serco is involved in the MOSES Project regarding either the coordination of the four Demo Areas, including management of market replication, or service definition and implementation with emphasis on space data provision, or training activities responsibilities.
For the MOSES Project two main Serco capabilities are being exploited, namely:
- knowledge of Satellites Earth Observation Data;
- Service Management.
Serco Belgium has more than 20 years’ experience in providing services to the European Commission (among other customers); moreover a team of satellites data management experts will guarantee the necessary background in the space sector. Among the services in the space sector, Serco has been providing support to ESA ESRIN in the Maintenance and Operation of Earth Observation Payload Data systems (e.g. from ERS-2, ENVISAT and ALOS missions). Serco has managed the GMES PDGS Technical Management Support Contract (Prime Contractor) within the (now) Copernicus Programme, in particular concerning the technical specification of GSC infrastructures (i.e. Sentinels PDGSs) and GSC Data Access operational services definition. Currently Serco is managing the operations of the ESA Sentinels Data Hub Systems for the dissemination of the Sentinels user products (see https://scihub.copernicus.eu/).Official website
