Title of project: H2020 ANDROMEDA "An EnhaNceD Common InfoRmatiOn Sharing EnvironMent for BordEr CommanD, Control and CoordinAtion Systems"

Duration: 18 months (September 2019 - February 2021)

Main objective and CISE relevance: ANDROMEDA aims to unlock the full potential of CISE, by validating in a long period of time CISE-compatible command & control systems from several Border and Coast Guard Authorities. It is envisaged to further enhance, validate and demonstrate CISE by extending its scope for Land Borders and adapting relevant C2 solutions and associated services. This will be accomplished by extending the CISE Data Model and adapting state-of-the-art C2s for full compliancy with the enhanced model and CISE message exchange patterns.

Title of project: RANGER: RAdars for loNG distance maritime surveillancE and Search and Rescue opeRations

Duration: 44 Months (1 May 2016 – 31 December 2019)

Main objective and CISE relevance: RANGER created an innovative surveillance platform by combining ground-breaking radar (Over the Horizon and PE-MIMO) technologies with state-of-the-art early warning solutions in order to detect, track and identify vessels far beyond existing legacy systems. The RANGER system as a whole has been fully implemented, integrated, tested and validated in 4 pilot demonstrations in two areas in the Mediterranean Sea (in France and Greece), in real operational environments. RANGER was the first EU funded project that exchanged operational picture through CISE network with the Greek CISE node. All these results create new opportunities for enhanced EU maritime situational awareness, safety systems and operations, and cross-border collaboration.

Title of project: autonomous swarm of heterogeneous RObots for BORDER surveillance (ROBORDER)

Duration: 46 months (1 May 2017 – 28 February 2021)

Main objective and CISE relevance: ROBORDER aims at developing and demonstrating a fully functional autonomous border surveillance system with unmanned mobile robots including aerial, water surface, under water and ground vehicles which will incorporate multimodal sensors as part of an interoperable network. CISE data model is exploited as a common base of describing the identified events to properly share common information. For this objective, CISE model was extended to support land and enriched for maritime operations to cover the ROBORDER operational scenarios.

Title of project: MARitime Integrated Surveillance Awareness (MARISA)

Duration: 34 months (May 2017 - February 2020)

Main objective and CISE relevance: MARISA provides security communities operating at sea with a data fusion toolkit, which makes available a suite of methods and techniques to correlate and fuse various data and information from different sources with the aim to improve information exchange, situational awareness, decision-making and reaction capabilities. MARISA has been designed to be compliant with CISE. Its interoperability with legacy solutions available across Europe has been tested in real exercises by using the EUCISE nodes made available by the MARISA end-users.
