"Within the context of the GMES Initiative, the G-MOSAIC Collaborative Project aims at identifying and developing products, methodologies and pilot services for the provision of geo-spatial information in support to EU external relations policies and at contributing to define and demonstrate sustainability of GMES global security perspective. The activities will be devoted to: Investigate the operational exploitation of GMES services as assets supporting security related activities on External Regional Crises Situations; Contribute to identify the Core and Downstream geo-spatial intelligence Services, in the framework of current status of GMES Initiative; Disseminate the knowledge on GMES potential impact on Security related User Community; Contribute to build a political consensus on GMES Services for Security; promote the construction of a European inter-pillar capability for the monitoring services and infrastructures; Assess a sustainable provision and funding model for GMES Security Services; provide recommendations for next sensors for security services. Reference Users are: DG-RELEX (and DGs Development, ECHO, Environment, etc.); Council Entities: EU Military Staff, Situation Centre; National Institutions: Ministries of Foreign Affaires, Intelligence Centres. The proposed service cases, built with the reference users, will support Situation Awareness and Intelligence applications and Crisis Management Operations. In the first domain, the deployed services provide information on major Threat Warning Factors (illegal activities, critical assets monitoring, WMD proliferation control, crisis indicators assessment, extended routes surveillance); these products contribute to understand where, outside of Europe, Regional Crises (state failure, ethnic conflicts, government instability) can occur; In the second domain, for identified Crisis Scenarios, the deployed services support the intervention activities: crisis planning and management, damage assessment, reconstruction and resilience."
