Volker Liebig (left), director of ESA’s Earth Observation Programs, unveiled the Dutch business BlackShore’s project Cerberus as overall winner of the 2012 GMES Masters competition.

A one-man Dutch business 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 the European Space Agency (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.
