JAGUAR PLAN: Definition of a remote sensing strategy for Latin America and the Caribbean

INDRA ESPACIO invites European Earth Observation companies to submit proposals to participate in the tendering process for the PLAN JAGUAR miniprojects in the context of ESA’s EOMD programme. The call includes 4 small test projects (“miniprojects”) to cover different Earth Observation topics of interest for the development of European EO services in Latin America.

The goal of the JAGUAR PLAN is to design an action plan for European Space Agency (ESA), in order to promote the international development of the European and Canadian EO market in Latin America and the Caribbean.

The JAGUAR PLAN has been running since June 2006. Several documents have been produced which are available to the EO community in the JAGUAR website. The miniprojects from the present ITT are the final step to elaborate the Jaguar Strategic Plan with the findings from the whole project.

The miniprojects address the delivery of pre-specified EO products, services or consultancy activities in close collaboration with end users intended to understand better the prospects for European EO services in Latin America and the Caribbean. The 4 selected miniprojects are:

Miniproject 1. Definition of the Lake Titicaca Territorial Observatory.

Miniproject 2. Remote Sensing as an instrument to manage risks and to develop agrarian insurances in the rural sector.

Miniproject 3. Viability analysis of remote sensing products for the urban management in LAC countries.

Miniproject 4. Methodology of environmental audit for the oil and gas activity in Ecuador using Earth Observation techniques.

The success of the international expansion of the EO market will be strongly dependent on the knowledge of the local EO actors in the different countries, and on the establishment of professional links with them and between them.

The complete text of the call and additional supporting information is available at the JAGUAR project website

This website is intended to function as a meeting point where interested institutions and companies can provide their professional data, as well as look up on information from other EO users and from the EO industry.
