Author: HSD Foundation

The Dutch Ministry of Security and Justice invites entrepreneurs to introduce their insights on innovation in satellite applications for Security and Justice and published their request on Tenderned. With this instrument the Dutch Ministry of Security and Justice aims to start a dialogue with the business community to further improve innovative products and services. The focus within the programme Satellite applications for Security and Justice is placed on innovative solutions which, for instance, help in detecting starting wildfires, can be used to determine foreign nationals’ region of origin, improve police observations and support, detecting environmental issues. These are all issues where satellite data and technology can provide a valuable contribution.


A Number of Examples:


  • Being able to monitor changes in earth surfaces and possibly also specific areas where pollution is connected to criminal facts;
  • Detecting starting wildfires in areas that are not easily accessible;
  • Building up an operational picture in case of wildfires and assignment of means.

The Ministry of Security and Justice is actively looking for more knowledge, insights and innovative solutions which could, eventually, be implemented within the operations of National Police Forces, Immigration services, Fire departments and Investigation services. This why the Ministry, with the assistance of HSD, organises a market consultation with the goal to explore the possibilities that the market has to offer. In a follow-up phase selected innovation possibilities will be further developed in cooperation with government, business communities and knowledge institutions.
