This procurement targets the delivery of the Copernicus Sentinels Production Operations Service (Copernicus Production Service). The Copernicus Production Service is a key element of the Copernicus Space Component (CSC) operations in charge of generating the Copernicus user level data for each Sentinel satellite, starting from the acquired satellite data stream. The Copernicus Production Service includes the following functionalities:

— systematic production for processing all the satellite data acquired into a set of pre-defined user level data that are made systematically and fully available to users,

— on-demand production, allowing the generation of any user level data from archived lower level user data,

— reprocessing, for the bulk re-generation of user level data.

Extended Description

This procurement targets the delivery of the Copernicus Sentinels Production Operations Service (Copernicus Production Service). The Copernicus Production Service is a key element of the Copernicus Space Component (CSC) operations in charge of generating the Copernicus user level data for each Sentinel satellite, starting from the acquired satellite data stream. The Copernicus Production Service includes the following functionalities:

— systematic production for processing all the satellite data acquired into a set of pre-defined user level data that are made systematically and fully available to users,

— on-demand production, allowing the generation of any user level data from archived lower level user data,

— reprocessing, for the bulk re-generation of user level data.

Copernicus Production Service will be based on service providers’ technical solution in line with the ESA defined interfaces and the use of the Instrument Data Processors (IPF) provided by ESA for the generation of the user level data.

The performance of the Copernicus Production Service will be managed through a service level agreement and the measurement of the service performance itself through a set of key performance indicators.

The Copernicus Production Service will be procured through the ESA framework agreements procedure, as established at Article 15 of ESA Procurement Regulations (ESA/REG/001, rev. 3 which can be downloaded at the following URL: http://emits.sso.esa.int/emits/owa/emits.main).

This procedure follows a 2-steps procurement approach:

— Step 1 – Qualification phase: qualification process established through an open competition (Frame invitation to tender – frame ITT) resulting in the award of frame contracts between the Agency and several service providers. Step 1 bidding period will be open until December 2021 at the earliest,

— Step 2 – Implementation phase: restricted competitions (Request for proposal — RFP) between the frame contractors qualified under Step 1 resulting into the award of work order(s) between the Agency and 1 or more frame contractors for the implementation of the Copernicus Production Service.
