In both cases, current, historical and future missions are covered with all levelsof data as well as auxiliary, in situ and campaign data.The service approach aims to achieve economies of scale, increase the standardisation of the related processes and interfaces, and favour the exploitation of the most cost-effective commercially available infrastructure.The competences required are strong process management and customer orientation, and ability to deploy and operate aneffective infrastructure. Good technical knowledge of EO data covering a wide spectrum of missions and instruments is also necessary, especially to handle the metadata.In order to achieve economies of scale for both ESA and the selected Bidder, the contract willhave a duration of 5 years, with a breakpoint after two years and the remaining three-year period subject to programmatic considerations and performance of the contractor.
