ESA start-up company wins GMES Masters award
Date:10/26/2012

The one-man Dutch business BlackShore has won the top prize in the European Earth-monitoring competition. The winning project, Cerberus, exploits social media to advance Earth observation applications.

In its second year, the Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES) Masters competition received more than 100 innovative business proposals from 20 European countries. The competition fosters creative product development and entrepreneurship in Europe in the GMES service fields: land, ocean, air quality, climate change and emergency response.

The GMES Masters was created by ESA, the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, the DLR German Aerospace Center and T-Systems, and is supported by the European Commission.

This year, two additional German industry leaders Astrium GEO-Information Services and European Space Imaging GmbH joined the competition as partners.

The 2012 winners were announced on 25 October at an event in Munich, Germany organised by Anwendungszentrum Oberpfaffenhofen (AZO) GmbH.

Volker Liebig, Director of ESA's Earth Observation Programmes, unveiled BlackShore's project Cerberus as the overall winner the GMES Master 2012 endowed with 20 000.

The project, which also won the European Space Imaging High-Res Challenge, is presented as a 'serious game' that involves participants in the creation of digital maps based on GMES data.

Cerberus users can mark where they see, for example, cracks in ice, damaged power cables or areas of drought on satellite images. This input is then translated into map layers to be used, after verification, by governments or other interested parties.

BlackShore is a Dutch start-up company hosted since 2011 at the ESA Business Incubation Centre Noordwijk, part of the Agency's Technology Transfer Programme.

Josef Aschbacher, Head of the ESA GMES Space Office, presented the award for the ESA App Challenge to Dr Harald Skinnem
