The Last I2C maritime surveillance campaign by DCNS is to happen from 26 June to 1 July 2014 in the bay of Toulon.
This project is supported by the European Union and is its last phase of testing.
I2C detects and identifies in real time illegal and criminal activities conducted at sea. The system analyses vessel trajectories and activities dynamically, interrogates databases and automatically raises alerts according to established rules in consultation with the operational authorities.
The results will be presented to the European Commission in Brussels on 11 September 2014.
To accomplish its tasks, the system uses algorithmic software to correlate and exploit all the information acquired from multiple sources such as coastal radars, aircraft and ships (via AIS3), and observation satellites. For each alert, it provides precise hypotheses concerning the nature of the illegal activity.
The operators can themselves define the “detection rules” settings to detect specific types of situation.
