ESA Open Invitation to Tender: 1-11516
Open Date: 13/09/2022 17:14 CEST
Closing Date: 26/10/2022 13:00 CEST

The purpose of this activity is to analyse the technical and business viability of space-based services which play a key role in the development of natural capital services (defined as per the topics indicated below). The services proposed by the Contractor inthe context of the present activity can leverage on the integration of space-based data together with other datasets, such as aerial imagery, in-situ data and data from other sources (e.g. statistic, maps). Solutions may also find value in integrating further terrestrial technologies such as machine learning, distributed ledger technologies, cloud computing and beyond. The following requirements shall be taken in account when carrying out the activity: o The kick-start study shall target the definition of innovative services, the development of business models for their provision, and the roadmap for further realisation, but not pure research and technology development activities.o The envisaged services shall benefit from one or more space assets (including SatNav, SatCom, SatEO, Human Spaceflight). The space assets shall represent a clear added value for the considered services and do not need to be limited to ESA's or European space assets. - Due to the customer/user-driven nature of the study and with the aim to consolidating the case for a potential follow-on demonstration project, the Contractor shall engage with the relevant customer/user community(ies) fromthe outset of the study and, whenever relevant for the successful achievement of the activity's objectives, other relevant stakeholders. Such involvement shall be reinforced by the Contractor during the whole study, to:- Understand the current solutions adopted by the users;- Define the user needs, constraints and expectations; - Validate the user requirements; - Identify potentially paying customers/users; - Validate the adequacy of the proposed system and associated services; - Coordinate and agree on the implementation roadmap of the services and possible participation in a demonstration project.
