The European Commission, through the Research Executive Agency (REA), has entrusted Indra with the G-SEXTANT R and D project aimed at developing different products and services that cover the geospatial information needs of the European External Action Service and of other users.

This project includes an investment of more than euro 5.7 million and its development will last through the first quarter of 2015.

G-SEXTANT forms part of the European Copernicus programme (previously referred to as GMES, Global Monitoring for Environment and Security), one of the European Commission's most important initiatives in the space sector.

Copernicus will enable the EU to observe the Earth in order to monitor the environment's evolution and to manage security and emergencies.

Indra leads the consortium comprised by companies, research centres and European organisations that are working on this project.

The objective of G-SEXTANT is to develop pre-operation products and services for observing the Earth.
