Scope


NEREIDS is conceived to provide an integrated vision of maritime policy and maritime surveillance so that the different elements of the service become useful to the different maritime domains (Illegal trafficking, illegal immigration, fisheries control,...). Currently, each of the available service focuses in specific applications and provides limited capabilities when the information of interest is modified. For instance, the technological constraints differ greatly from open sea monitoring to coastal / beach tactical analysis. The idea behind NEREIDS yields on developing a system of systems that permits a complete and meaningful maritime picture and permits solving the most challenging technological drawbacks that current services have to face on. This objective is completely aligned with what promoted by the EUROSUR program: "Awareness in the maritime domain requires monitoring the compliance of all activities, detecting with the help of surveillance and ship reporting system anomalies that may signal illegal (security threats) acts and generating intelligence that enables law enforcement authorities to stop unlawful entry into the EU area"
