GMES in brief
The European Earth observation program GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security) is a complex set of systems which collects data from multiple sources, such as earth observation satellites and in situ sensors (e.g. ground stations, airborne and sea-borne sensors), processes these data and provides users with reliable and up-to-date information through thematic services.
GMES is an EU-led initiative. The European Commission ensures the coordination and management of the GMES programme. The setting up of initial versions of the GMES services have been assigned to several projects partly financed through the 7th Research and Development Framework Programme of the European Union, while the developments related to the observation infrastructure are performed under the aegis of the European Space Agency for the space component and of the European Environment Agency and the Member States for the in situ component.
