GEOINT Cooperation

The national coordinating body of the Romanian space activities is the Romanian Space Agency (ROSA), established in 1991 and reorganized by a Government Decision in 1995 as an independent public institution under the auspices of the Ministry of Research and Technology (actually, the Ministry of Education and Research).
The missions of ROSA are to promote and coordinate development and national efforts in the field, and, as a Government representative, to promote international cooperation. In particular, ROSA is authorized to establish research and development centers oriented on specific objectives of the Romanian Space Programme. ROSA is developing its own research and development projects.
The GEOINT Training and Research Center (CGINT) was developed by Military Technical Academy in cooperation with Romanian Space Agency (ROSA), and other national security organizations.
Based on experience gathered by consortium members in research and development activities related to different GEOINT components, CGINT wants to demonstrate possibility and usefulness of creating a Centre for Geospatial Intelligence by creating a reduced scale, minimal functionality model.
Organizational as well as scientific and technological problems included in CGINT's approach allow the consortium member to exploit their scientific achievements in new research area and thus create new capacity and improved capability to be tested in future European research and development programs targeting security.

European Union Satellite Centre

The mission of the European Union Satellite Centre (EUSC) is to support the decision-making of the European Union by providing analysis of satellite imagery and collateral data. The EUSC is an Agency of the Council of the European Union. It is one of the key institutions for European Union’s Security and Defense policy, and the only one in the field of space.
In 2007 COL Dan RADUCANU, the coordinator of CGINT was invited by EUSC Director to represent Romania at SatCen as a National Seconded Expert inside the Training Unit. The main assignment was to develop new courses regarding SAR THR Imagery, GPS Positioning, Terrain Analysis, and Digital Image Processing.
In 2008 COL Dan RADUCANU participated at EUSC as guest lecturer in the delivery of courses mentioned before.

Cassidian (formerly known as EADS Defence & Security) is the defense and security pillar within EADS, driving the Group's development of integrated system solutions that meet its customers’ needs for Network Enhanced Capabilities (NEC).
Due to his international expertise in the field of Military Applications of SAR THR Imagery, EADS Geo-Intelligence Solutions invited COL Dan RADUCANU to perform courses in June 2009.

The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is the national centre for aerospace, energy and transportation research of the Federal Republic of Germany. It is engaged in a wide range of research and development projects in national and international partnerships. In addition to conducting its own research projects, DLR also acts as the German space agency.
CGINT has developed with Prof. Dr. habil Mihai Datcu from DLR, proficient scientific research cooperation. We realized fructuous activities and scientific results from a number of joint collaborations, as for instance the European Space Agency (ESA) project RoKEO, the Romanian national projects GeoINF and RoSAR, or for many meetings and discussions at ESA in Frascati, Italy, European Union Satellite Center (EUSC), in Madrid, Spain, Romanian Space Agency, and the Military Technical Academy (MTA) in Bucharest, Romania.
The specific knowledge in image analysis and methods we elaborated inside CGINT are now been included in the Knowledge based Image Information Mining (KIM) system in the frame of collaboration with ESA, ROSA and Faculty of Electronics and Telecommunications of University Politehnica, Bucharest.

In 2007, the MTA and CGINT staff visited the NGA College at Fort Belvoire to share educational experience regarding the IMINT/GEOINT ANALYSIS AND EXPLOITATION OF AEROSPACE IMAGERY AND GEOSPATIAL INFORMATION courses. NGC staff appreciates the way we apply the GEOINT doctrine developed by NGA in 2004.

The NATO Research and Technology Organisation (RTO) promotes and conducts co-operative scientific research and exchange of technical information amongst 28 NATO nations and 38 NATO partners. The largest such collaborative body in the world, the RTO encompasses over 3000 scientists and engineers addressing the complete scope of defense technologies and operational domains.
This effort is supported by an executive agency, the Research and Technology Agency (RTA), that facilitates the collaboration by organizing a wide range of studies, workshops, symposia, and other forums in which researchers can meet and exchange knowledge.
COL Dan RADUCANU, the coordinator of CGINT, is member from 2005 of MSG-049: M&S systems for Civil Emergency Response Planning and Training. He provides Geospatial and emergency reconnaissance techniques expertise.

Space Imaging Middle East LLC (SIME) is a regional affiliate of GeoEye, the largest commercial remote sensing company in the world.
Established in 1997, SIME started off by introducing high-resolution satellite imagery to the Middle East region, operating from government-run ground stations. Today, SIME, headquartered in the United Arab Emirates, is a leading Geo-Spatial and GIS solutions provider throughout the Middle East, the Persian Gulf, Eastern Africa and Central Asia.
SIME is the company that integrated GEOINT, GIS, and Working Flow Manager software solutions inside CGINT to develop specific products and services.
