Research area:

New system to boost surveillance at sea

Keeping seas and oceans safe, secure and clean is a priority. Ensuring adequate maritime security is necessary to protect the EU's strategic maritime interests. The EU-funded EFFECTOR project will boost maritime surveillance and improve decision support. By implementing an interoperability framework and associated data fusion and analytics services for maritime surveillance and border security, the project will foster collaboration between maritime stakeholders. This will allow the faster detection of new events and better-informed decision making.

Moreover, the joint understanding and undertaking of a situation across borders will allow the seamless cooperation between operating authorities and on-site intervention forces, ensuring that all existing privacy and data protection rules are fully respected. The project will test its solution in France, Portugal and Greece.
