Geospatial Intelligence support in Crisis Management – EU SatCen Approach
Summary of the presentation: For the past 25 years, the EU Satellite Centre, an Agency of the European Union, has been facing a constant evolution in the nature and variety of analytical tasks and technologies at its disposal. The Centre is providing geospatial intelligence products and services to a wide range of users within the European External Action Service and the EU Member States, varying from high-level decision makers in Brussels to missions deployed on the ground.
This presentation shows some significant examples that highlight the relevance of satellite imagery and geospatial analysis technologies for crisis management. In particular, how the Centre is already providing analytical products and services that are supporting the different phases of a crisis, from the pre-crisis period to the stabilization and peacebuilding stage.
