Abstract: GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security) is a European initiative for the implementation of information services dealing with environment and security. It is based on the combination of Earth Observation (EO) data and in-situ measurements. LIMES (Land/Sea Integrated Monitoring for European Security) is a GMES-funded Integrated Project proposing an exploratory methodology and implementation roadmap to organize the European EO capacities for security. LIMES started in December 2006 and includes a work package on Treaty Monitoring. The objective of the Treaty Monitoring work package is to provide an integrated framework and platform supporting the verification of treaty compliance. This will be achieved by having a GIS-based platform capable of integrating, processing and analysing data and documents from multiple sources, including satellite imagery, site modeling, open source information, reports, etc. The Treaty Monitoring work package selected the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) as a test case. A demonstration of the platform will be made using a relevant European site. The developments of this work package may be relevant to those involved in Treaty Monitoring activities, namely the European Commission (DG TREN), the EU Council (SITCEN) or the IAEA. The paper describes the objectives of LIMES and in particular of the Treaty Monitoring work package. It provides an overview of the functionalities and main benefits of the proposed platform.
