An efficient, secure, and interoperable data platform solution has been developed in the TESSA project to provide fast navigation and access to the data stored in the data archive, as well as a standard-based metadata management support. The platform mainly targets scientific users and the Situational Sea Awareness high-level services such as the Decision Support Systems (DSS). These datasets are accessible through the following three main components: the Data Access Service (DAS), the Metadata

OPeNDAP, THREDDS, and WMS are just some of the solutions that have been integrated into the TESSA infrastructure. Metadata Service is the heart of the information system of the TESSA products and completes the overall infrastructure for data and metadata management. This component enables data search & discovery, and addresses interoperability by exploiting ISO standards for geospatial data (ISO 19115 and ISO 19139). Finally, the CDAM represents the back-end of the TESSA DSS by performing on-demand complex data analysis tasks.
